Need some advice from you guys. I hunt a lease and some public land. Lease has been hit or miss. Did really good last weekened on public. This past weekened and today we saw a lot of Greys flying high on both property's. Blow duck call and they keep on moving. Don't blow call and they keep on moving. Duck weed growing in ponds. Seems like all good conditions. We put out 2 to 3 dozen decoys on lease and had only put a dozen on public trying to save wieght in pirouge for the long hike to this remote area. Do you think it's just normal or need more decoys when windy and cloudy like last 3 days? I've been a hardcore duck hunter since I was 7 or 8 years old. Always hunted marsh and never really used more than 3 dozen decoys. Just wanted to see others opinion or if any face same thing. Not sure if it's new birds comming in riding wind, old birds going from one sanctuary to another, ducks preference if pond size on those cloudy windy days, or if I'm just doing something wrong. Any thought are welcomed.
