    So the consensus is that it’s a waste of time to paint gadwall decoys because gadwalls are coming to the hole or not regardless of what the decoys look like.

    I was afraid of that but I may paint them anyway.

    It seems they are either coming or they aren't. Some years we do really well on em, some years we kill just a handful. When I've hunted the Mississippi delta, they and pintails were the majority.

    Whenever "regional" comes up some southern boy ALWAYS claims birds down south are harder. That's where it came from.

    So... you went ahead and brought it up first. Make sense? Didn’t think so.

    Must not have those tiny little bird brains you keep telling us about.
