I would have to say other. Scouting is 90% of the game. I am not an outstanding caller, but I still kill ducks. We used decoys that had most of the paint off of them and shot limits over them. I think if you are in "the spot" everything else will just fall into place.
I voted decoys but if there was an "other" I would have picked it. IMO the most important thing is location. You HAVE to be where the ducks wanna be or it's not gonna matter what your decoys look like or how good of a caller you are. Just my opinion! :salude:
In my timber hole, 90% of the ducks we kill come in with no calling. They just really like the spot and they must like our dekes too. There's been many times when I was standing there talkin to my friend and the next thing you know, we here ducks sailin in and look up to see them about 15 - 25 yds. out.
