Looking to pick up some new decoys. I hunt the public refuge system in N. CA where you have to walk in and set up decoys each time out. For the most part I hunt potholes and a few times a year open water. The trick is that every thing I use needs to be packed in and out in one decoy bag. I made a small cart for the times I go on longer hikes.

The area I hunt is mostly Mallards, Pintail, Woodies, Widgeon, Teal, and Gadwalls. Every once in a while the old smiling Malard (shovler) flys in but we let them keep going. :tounge:

With the above in mind what would a good combination be to pick up? I have been using 1 dz Mallards and 1 Doz Teal but they are getting old and looking to replace them. Was thinking of adding some Widgeon, Woodies, and Gadwalls if it might add variety and make a difference. Anyone out there hunt the same species and mix decoys up like I am thiking of doing?????

Thanks,

i would say stick with the malards and i would add widgeon. like 12 mallards and 6 widgeon then add 6 divers like goldeneye or bluebills. the black and white works good for me. if you have never tryed it you should.
