My 13 year old son and I are making our maiden voyage to North Dakota. Our goal is to duck and goose hunt first and fill in with some pheasant hunting. Since we've done primarily pot hole and stream hunting here in WI we're looking for some general info on field hunting. We're coming out the 20th of October and hunting through Sunday. In a field spread with two people how many goose and duck decoys does one need? I'm assuming you can put out both and draw in either geese or ducks. Do you have to modify your water duck deeks or are they ok sitting on the ground. We do have a lucky duck. How far apart should we spread our decoys? The ducks and geese together or apart. How far away should we park our truck? So many question! Sorry, we just want to be prepared. One last question. We've been told securing permission to hunt shouldn't be a problem? What are your thoughts?? It worries me a bit.
