For those of you more experienced hunters, do you have more success with Mallard decoys or goose decoys when hunting teal?
Our season starts Sep 8th, can't freakin wait!
I'll be hunting mostly on the MO river
around here we use mallard and black duck decoys mostly, but realy with teal get where they want to be and just kinda try and hide and you should be able to kill a few .
i had the same bunch come back to the pond i was hunting 3 times and each time i killed atleast 1 so if they want to be where your at all you need is a gun shells and waders and a dog never hurts.
When it comes to scent, there are basically two types; those that attract and those that mask. I've tried both on many occasions. There are lots and lots of "doe in heat" scents, designed to attract a big buck into range. I've also used a "cow in heat" scent while elk hunting.
Another scent would almost be better named as a "coverup smell". The main goal is to cover up human odor or mask it. Though I don't believe you can ever totally eliminate all human...
