    I only have about 325 decoys 12 fullbodys 80 shells and the rest silo socks I want to set up on a field that's kinda wet it was flooded for duck season and I was wanting to know if you guys think I could do any good on them when they fly over I have not seen any geese on the field or should I hunt a field that the geese have been on about three weeks ago

    Agreed if you are in there flight pattern they will come check you out. But if you can find a field with them in there get in before everyone else.

    Are you talking snows or honkers. If honkers and you can get to a field they are using you could probably just use the 12 FBs.

    I'd spread em out a bit with areas for them to land in. How are you gonna hide in that field?
