I would find a good brushy area to set up a blind so it blends in. it is my understanding that woodies don't really decoy that well mostly past shooting. All the ones I have killed have been past shooting.

I sort of disagree with Steelheader on this one.....I have had really good success on bringing them in to the decoys. If you give them a chance, they will certainly set in. Maybe being this far north, the aren't as spookish as when they get shot at a few times. I have had them swim in, fly off water to come in.....every time they never cease to surprise me. I would throw out a few magnum sized mallard decoys and get good with a wood duck call. Woody decoys are pretty and at the same time pretty small.......I don't even mess with em anymore. Good luck.

Here's another fun way to pursue those pesky woodies...... wade the creek moving very slowly UPSTREAM (because the birds usually face into the current). I have been very sucessful using this strategy on puddlers. You will find all sorts of spots where the ducks are regularly found - then set in motion a decoy spread. A blinb may not be the best thing because on a creek the birds will not be in the same spot long term.
