    Yea I can't decide between getting a PlotWatcher Pro or one with true video and night time capabilities.

    Water is less than 6" deep.

    I like the PlotWatcher camera because it takes pictures at set intervals so one is not relying on the cameras ability to pick up motion. You can set it to shut down during the middle of the day to save batteries. The negative is no nighttime capabilities, but photo range of night time cameras is often exaggerated.

    Notice also that nobody really makes a decoy that mimics most of the feeding head positions. I also noticed how much the white really pops out. I had begun widening the white areas on my drake mallards last year and going solid white tails.

    Don't go to any trouble on my account. I assumed, like my game cams, video capability was built in. Neat pics though.

    Awesome pics! I forgot how good those male gadwalls look.

    As far as decoys go, they're not perfect but I bought some of these this year and they fool the ducks in my area and have a realistic look (avianx backwater)

    Yep I have some of those as well. Also took several of the hens to make FFD black ducks.

    Yeah, my friend has the avian-x backwater fully flocked blacks. A little pricy but they look great. We have lots of blacks our way.
