Hey guys, I am new to what you would call serious duck hunting. Growing up my friends and I snuck around taking pot shots. With age comes new resources and thus new opportunities. This year I will be hunting some out of a pit in an open rice field. What is the best spread pattern and the best number of dekes to put out? Also, would you recommend a so called "robo" duck with the spinning wings, if so how many and where should they be put? I've seen many posts dealing with self-constructed decoys. I am sure that this is the best way, but if you had to recommend a brand what would it be? Flambeaus I see are relatively inexpensive anything wrong with them? Any advice you could share with me will be greatly appreciated.
