Using Duck Decoys
For centuries, hunters have relied on the use of decoys to lure ducks into their shooting range. Now don't get me wrong, you can successfully hunt ducks without decoys (known as jump shooting or pass shooting), but it's typically more time-consuming and you'll generally see far fewer ducks. Using duck decoys allows you to hunt from a still location (known as a hunting blind) while you wait for ducks to land.
While the the design and construction of duck decoys has drastically changed over the years, their principle remains the same - hunters strategically place them in a pond, lake or nearby body of water to give ducks the impression that it's safe to come in and land. When the ducks flying overhead see this natural-looking setup, they'll likely try to come in and land. The hunter may also use a duck caller to add even more realism to the decoy spread.
It's important to know how to use properly use decoys if you want to have success hunting ducks. Unfortunately you can't throw out a dozen random decoys and watch the ducks come flying down. Instead, you have to identify the different duck species in the area and look for their behavioral patterns. While some species may be drawn to your current decoy setup, others may feel threatened and fly away from it. One of the patterns you should look for is the size of flocks certain duck species prefer. If the ducks you're hunting prefer traveling in smaller flocks, use less decoys, if they prefer larger flocks, use more. You can determine this information by asking someone familiar with hunting in the area or by doing a little testing of your own. After all, the best tips will come from your own experiences in the blind.
