Year old thread leaker but will comment. I hunt a very small timber hole. There are three separate landing approaches the ducks will use. They vary by the wind but on a calm day you need eyes in the back of your head.
I know in advance which approach the ducks will use and where they will land depending on what wind I have.
I set my spread right where they want to land and sometimes will set up to block them from escaping.
(They won't fly over other ducks on the water in general)
One approach has a great escape route under the canopy, I block it with decoys. They have to stall and change direction to escape...gives me easy helicopter shots.
My mojo goes "where I want them to land" .
