Looking to get a few more fb duck decoys this off season and was thinking about adding a few snow full bodies as well. I don't really target snows, but thought they might add to the look of the spread.

My question is, would it look natural to have let's say 6 snow decoys and a mix of pintail and mallard FBs together on the dike at Wister?

I bet you at some time in the 114 closed zone their has been 6 snow geese frolicing next to some mallards and sprig in the water or on the dike.

Lots of mallards are killed right smack dab in the middle of snow spreads when in fields. I assume those mallard that decoy in would know what they are getting themselves into.

So we have sprig and mallards that we know like snows.

How many more duck species can we add?

I cleaned out my truck this past weekend. First time in months it hasn't had an article of mammal or bird hunting in it. Sad day.

db, that a collared Ross Goose. Ross geese aren't as aggressive as snows so they will pile in with the ducks.

Having some snow full bodies anywhere will act as a confidence decoy

How about if I'm hunting a blind at Wister that rarely sees snows? Would FB snows on the bank still be a good confidence for ducks?

I used to hunt snows and ducks combined many times at Wister. We would usually place the snows on one side and either north or south of our ducks decoys on the other side. We would have some awesome hunts for both ducks and geese. I am now of the opinion that the snows will flair from duck decoys and the ducks will flair from snow decoys. I think this is a result of how the refuge has been cleared / moon scaped.
