    Of course you should. It is a time honored practice. Some flat black, a few surf scoters, a few bluebills. It's quick, easy and effective. been doing it a long time and that is why I can put out a sea duck or diver spread with over 200 decoys for each

    No because life is to sort to shoot ducks over plastic decoys.
