    Really neat Clayton. Nice to see all the different species using in a moist soil unit. I'm hoping they'll find mine appealing too.

    Yeah... $90 per decoy is a bit pricey.:eek:

    But they do look very good.

    Cool pics. Pretty much all the decoys I try and buy skimmers, resters, etc. On pintails, nobody really has much of offering, I have been working on some foamers. Hopefully next year they will be ready for the field.

    Clayton: Great information and pictures you have provided all of us hobby farmers with. Valuable insight to holding ducks depending on temp conditions. Gonna try to post pictures of my place in Nebraska today. Thanks for sharing. Lynn

    Could you expand upon your decision to use plotwatcher cams for waterfowl viewing purposes? I'm interested in rigging a live feed of my marsh to monitor both daily duck #'s as well as specific vegetation ducks are focusing on during various times of the migration...

    I like the fact I don't have to worry about a motion triggering system working fast enough or even at all. Hear way to much about missed images of deer. If they miss something as big as a deer then they will certainly miss ducks. Plotwatcher takes pictures at set intervals no matter what.

    Awesome pictures. I've always thought it would be cool to set up a trail cam in the hole of an ice eater during a freeze. The moist soil pictures are a great way to learn something.
