I just bought my first set of decoys and deployed them on the Payette river yesterday... had a few things working against me to start, mainly the # of other hunters in close proximity calling their fool heads off to any bird they say in the air. It was also a crystal clear day, not too cold, and a little windy as the day progressed. Never hunted this spot on a clear day, only overcast and cold. Regardless, I set my small spread out in nesting pairs and in smaller groups due to the time of year. Rigged them with camo paracord, which I thought would be a good idea, however I think the birds could see the rigging. I don't know if it was due to the hunting pressure (there were at least 8 other hunters close to me and I heard shots in lots of other directions) or if the decoys were not rigged right, but only called in a couple mallards to the spread that were interested. Me and a buddy got all birds that came into range, but I thought it would have been more significant. Any rigging tips or suggestions from the veterans that know how to rig a decoy? This is my first time going at it this way. I was thinking 60# mono to hide the rigging from the birds... I have plenty of mono and dropshot lead in my offshore box. Any info would be appreciated. I'm sure if I went in the middle of the week when less pressure was on the birds will be a suggestion, but I work so... here is a pic of the spread we put out. NOTE: There were a TON of birds in the air. They were on the move, either being pushed or migrating, just had a real hard time calling them in. In the past, this has not been the case. About 5 mins before shooting hours there were about 100 birds in the air. Go figure.
