I have a group of birds patterned and I played it safe today thinking by decoys might pull them up the last 50 yards or so to me. They went by at 75 yards seeing my strutter but possible elevation made my hen impossible to see from there angle.
To really play the percentages on where I keep seeing them I would be on the split between corn stubble and a hay field with no cover around the blind whatsoever.
Long story short would you set up in the absolute wide open with a blind and has it worked for you, or is this a bad idea? I see it on the tube all the time but I dont have 37 turkeys fly down and attack my decoys every trip either.
