This article will kick off a series of short post detailing what goes into the before, during and after of a duck hunting season.

Duck hunting flooded corn in the Reelfoot area all but requires very large quantities of decoys to be competitive. This year, in addition to our all ready huge decoy spread, we will be adding 30 dozen Battleship duck decoys. We chose to use these in the flooded corn for 2 main reasons. They are foam filled, thus virtually impossible to sink, and they are very large. Size is a critical feature as visibility is one of the most important aspects of drawing distant ducks.
