The action is fast. Flight patterns are sporadic and when they commit, you better be ready to call the shot. If you have hunted these speedy creatures in the early season, you know, this as fact. The Blue Wing Teal are a challenge for even the best of shooters. So what can we do to improve the odds of coming out with a full bag. I have a couple ideas that may help.
Your first thought is to have your spread in close. Certainly the closer you get them into your set up, the longer you have to get on them. Either on the approach or on the exit, but what if they do not want to commit?
One technique that I have found to work is to have smaller family groups of decoys. Allowing plenty of lanes in between the groups for these sultans of speed. This option is also a strategic method to allow placement for motion decoys. Place your motion in the gaps between you and your spread. Teal love motion decoys with water movement capabilities. They will be drawn in between the family groups and right in your face.
Always remember, your terrain may offer other challenges that can hinder your set up. If what you are doing isn't working, think it out and change.
Also remember how much Teal love motion decoys that move water. The best can be found right here at Team FowlQuest with the Mallard Master Pro.
