Feeder-style decoys have long been used by hunters, but now you can get one that looks more realistic than ever. The Higdon Magnum Duck Butt is a perfect example of this. As a foam-filled decoy, it's pretty much bulletproof. You're bound to fool plenty of ducks with the added realism from the detailed paint job. Pick up your feeder-style decoy here.

It's always good to have a few feeder ducks in your decoy arsenal. That's because ducks find it very enticing to see other ducks already feeding on the water. Added bonus if you can throw it on a jerk cord to help with water movement. That water movement will be a big draw for onlooking ducks as it shows a good bit of feeding going on. It's good to have about a dozen or so of butt up decoys mixed in with another dozen or two regular decoys. 

If possible, set up the decoy spread as realistic to your particular field as possible. Scout out what the ducks in your field tend to do and then try to match that in your spread. If the ducks are feeding in a particular area, make sure you try to recreate that. You don't want to put butt up feeders in an area where ducks know there is no food. 

Pretty much, it all comes down to making your spread as realistic as possible. And feeder-style decoys are a big help in this.
