IMO you can have to many dekes. I am not on a huge bird population. I don't like to use more than four - five doz in the early season. In Feb - March I don't use more than doz. and a half.(18 dekes).
In my estimation you are correct about early season. Less numbers as the flocks are small compared to later on. Often I'll use 9 to 15 FB decoys in our early season.Tarponman said:I've heard of not enough but can you have to many? especially early season.
