Decoys: And Proven Methods for Using Them

Decoys: And Proven Methods for Using Them Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Through the decades, North American waterfowlers have devised many decoys and many decoy strategies for luring ducks and geese into close shotgun range. Inventive minds and trial-and-error testing have conjured up decoy systems for almost every setting imaginable.Here, for the first time, is a book that offers a variety of effective decoy spreads from some of the country's most successful waterfowling guides and freelancers. Included are strategies and spreads for hunting ducks and geese in small ponds and marshes, large open lakes, coastal bays, rivers, flooded timber, agricultural fields, and many other waterfowling settings.More than 30 detailed descriptions and diagrams of tried-and-true decoy layouts, plus information on everything from the history of decoy making to modern decoys, styles, sizes, rigging, and decoy movement make this the best how-to-decoy book ever. (6 x 9, 232 pages, b&w photos, illustrations)

Synopsis:

Through the decades, North American waterfowlers have devised many decoys and many decoy strategies for luring ducks and geese into close shotgun range. Inventive minds and trial-and-error testing have conjured up decoy systems for small ponds and marshes, large open lakes, coastal bays, flooded timber, dry fields, and other waterfowling settings. Author Wade Bourne, a regular contributor to Ducks Unlimited magazine and a longtime waterfowler, takes the mystery out of using decoys, exploring everything from the history of decoy making to modern decoys, styles, sizes, rigging, movement, as well as a wide variety of effective decoy spreads from some of the country's most successful waterfowlers. Detailed descriptions and drawings of layouts make this the best how-to-decoy book ever.
