When trying to determine which motion decoys you need, there are several ways to go. You can have:
Here is a Bullet on Motion Decoys from The DuckMechanic:
Over the last two decades, ducks have become smarter and harder to bring to floating or stationary spreads. They have become decoy shy and become more leery as the season progresses. I have been much more successful using more realistic floating, full body decoys and Motion Decoys. I typically use three types to mimic "live" ducks' movements:
1) Spinning wings and flappers attract ducks from
long and short distances and make my spread look active.
2) Swimmers and shakers create wave movement making your floating decoys look as though they are alive.
3) Wind driven decoys provide random motion, and add a final touch of realism to your spread.
Using these types of motion decoys together with more realistic floaters and full body decoys can help create your own "honey hole" where ducks will drop "gear down" into your spread.
