as it is later in the year I was just curious if I should use a broader variety of species or narrow it down to a few? I have 2 dozen mallards of different brand, a doz gadwalls, 8 pintails, 6 woodys, and 5 wigeons. I have access to a dozen more mallards, a few more wigeons and gadwalls. Just curious what I should be doing. I've been putting out mostly mallards with gads and pins mixed in

If it were me, I would consider getting some Ringneck, Canvasback, or Bufflehead decoys to add some more white to your spread. But you have the right Puddle duck spread!
