we try to put similar number of lifesized o/and slightly larger decoys in the place where birds have been seen and try to set them in similar manner to how the birds have been seen....
add in lots of ripples and some half ok calling and it seems to work.

I do think that one of the reasons that oversize/magnum decoys were popular were that they more visible from a distance than smaller decoys. Now that we have mojo or spinning wing decoys to get the attention of distance flocks, their utility is negated.

Once the spinner gets the attention of the ducks, they are more attracted to numbers than decoy size.

For walk-in hunts, I find it better to carry in more smaller decoys and a portable spinner (Mojo Dove) than to carry in larger decoys and no spinner.
