I am fairly new to duck hunting and I just have 27 decoys. I have 21 mallard decoys and 6 pintail decoy. I would love to start hunting for divers but how do yall afford all those decoys. Do you buy 2 dozen decoys a year or what. ALso where do you store all those decoys?? I live in ALabama and I have the tennessee river and elk river that is 5 minutes away from my house. Where do diving ducks like to hang out on rivers. I know this is alot of questions but im trying to learn as much as I can. Good luck hunting. Tyler

Compared to some people i don't have many decoys ( 70 mallards, 18 bluebills, 6 canvasback, and 10 a mix of other species. Plus my 80 snow goose decoys. I just keep them in our garage. Whenever i get extra money i buy more dekes.

store mine in the garage. i buy dekes as i can afford them.off of points of islands are good spots to set out diver dekes. set them in a line they seem to like that best. you can get divers with even just a few diver dekes. more is better though.

yeah you can kill divers with a dozen dekes. my cousin has used just a couple super mag diver dekes, and killed divers. i started with a dozen and killed alot of divers with that dozen. start with a dozen and work up to more. i only have 4 dozen. which isnt alot of diver dekes compared to others. but hunting divers on rivers is different than on big lakes or reservoirs.

What kindof divers are you shooting on a river ? And could the missippi river be good for divers ? Where we own 300 acres along the shores of the missippi and two corn fields. Thear are two islands out thear and we have a point and own alot of backwater.

Hey my computer has not been letting me get on here and for some reason it will only let me get on while im at my grandmothers house is where i am right now. For the last 5 days i have been having my password change and been talking to Chris about my user name and password. For some reason when I put in my user name and password it will say invalid password or user name. I ask if he could wipe out my membership and let me then re register but maybe it will work eventually. I live in Northeralabama. I was wondering what time of diving ducks travel down the mississppiee river and do they also travel down the tennessee river or elk river. I live pretty close to those last 2 rivers. Well thanks for the info. Tyler
