    If you have 10 Buffhead decoys, how would you set them in a saltwater sound area? Set them close together, spread them out, long line or single lines. I usually set up on a point or a place I see birds setting

    It doesn't matter at all really. Just put them on a longline so they're quicker to put out and pick up. There are going to be guys telling you this and that but buffleheads are dumb as a stump so it doesn't matter at all. If they see the decoys they will pile in.

    You should get magnum bufflehead decoys, it really makes a difference. I put out 2 decoys in front of my blind Didn't hear any shooting around me, but must of had about 50 -60 bufflehead come right in the dekes in about one hour.

    Whatever is easiest. I keep by bufflehead decoys between others and the shore. Buffleheads bomb right in pretty well to their own kind so keep them close in to your shooting position. Your decoys may take a pounding from shot.
