Waterfowl Tips
Allen Treadwell
Assorted tips on waterfowl hunting and gear maintenance.
Allen Treadwell
  1. Use your feet to muddy the water around your decoys. It makes it easier for ducks to spot your spread when over clear water.
  2. Rub some Vaseline on the heads of your drake decoys to add a little more sheen, making them far more attractive to high-flying lookers.
  3. Magnum decoys can be seen at twice the distance and their wide bottoms keep them from rolling over. You can also get away with using fewer decoys.
  4. Place a few crow decoys to one side of a field spread for geese. These decoys give high-flying geese confidence to settle in to the lifelike spread.
  5. To find a leak in your waders, put a light inside your waders, turn off the lights, look for the light shining through the hole, mark it, and patch it.
