Last year we found a spot while traveling that was loaded with oldsquaw.This next year we are planning a trip to target them. I am assuming they will decoy in to our mixed bag of decoys, broads, redheads, cans, some whistlers and buffies. You all think i should purchase some oldsquaw dekes as well? Any thing else different from hunting any other diver?

If you have time, it doesn't take much effort to make them out of foam, and you can make thm a little more accurate than Mallard bodies. I just finished up 8 Oldsquaws that I made out of Cedar. I used zip ties for the tails.
I've had great luck with them decoying, but they die hard, and bleed all over the boat.
I've got to finish the painting, and I plan on posting the photos.
Hands down my fovorite duck to hunt above all others is the Old Squaws. I love seeing a group of them steaming in with their gear down. Those pictures are fantastic to say the least. PLEASE Have calendars made so i can see that every day.
