    I would just set a simple circle, FBs on the down wind edge, specs in the up wind edge. If you are hunting solo, you have enough decoys in you are in a good location, but some motion with some socks or at least a flag will help.

    I have more but they won't come in to them so I'm not going to waist my time setting them all out again

    What are you using to call to them? Ecaller? They didn't land in with your socks and tags or they flared at 300 yards from your Dekes? Need more info to help ya

    Try turning your caller down, and are you using anything else to hide with besides just a white suit?

    I agree with turning the caller down but if they are flaring at 200 yards they are seeing something they don't like. I don't think less decoys are the trick imo. They are use to landing with thousands of their own kind
