    we watch the weather closely and pick up everything. Then use the boat to open a hole and the ice eaters to keep it open.
    Set out 10 to 12 doz. daily after the first freeze to the end of season.

    I’ve always thought from a drone view spreads that are tight looked better then spreads or decoys spaced far apart, it is an interesting study. The other thing I’ve noticed are how visible black holes are, even the small one foot or so holes on the doors of ground layout blinds stick out from a drone view big time. Fairly solid but not complete draping vegetation is critical for hide after looking at drone images. Blind holes for shooting or even put holes stick out big time.

    I remember Dale Humburg talking about flying over wetlands doing his duck counts for MDC. He always said if the blind opening was not covered up, it looked like a big black hole from the air. We could all learn something from a drone's point of view I am sure.

    How are those Battleship decoys working out for you? I'm thinking about getting a few. Got any pictures of them from your blind or any info you could share? Did you texas rig them?

    Here is drone footage of our blind with the Battleships in front and standard Higdon foam filled decoys on the back. Hopefully, we can continue to buy these decoys and replace our standard decoys. Yes, we Texas rigged them.

    Oh I remember this video now. Awesome video. I wish I lived closer to Gill's Camp. Looks like an awesome club to be a part of.
