1. A decoy should never be visible while being transported. Never carry an uncovered (identifiable) decoy any distance.
2. Whenever possible, set-up by a "stand" tree that is greater in diameter than the width of your shoulders.
3. From your seated position, identify the clearest line of vision to your front. Establish a "sight line" that allows you 100 yards visibility. Then set your decoy(s) approximately 20 yeards from your position on the line.
4. Should you see another hunter (especially if he or she is close to your "line of sight", call out to them in a loud, clear voice. Their presence has already compromised your location and a "soft" call may only confuse them, rather than alerting them to your presence.
5. If you are calling over decoys and then elect to move to a new location, check carefully to ensure that no one is stalking your decoys. Check BEFORE leaving your "stand" tree. Should you see someone in the area, rule #4 applies.
