Well, I've already gone over my budget this fall, so I'm stuck with 4 doz divers & only 1/2 doz pin dekes. Will pins decoy into a spread that is almost all divers?

I have 6 pintail decoys as well... I've hardly ever used them and I've shot a half dozen pintails or so in my life. They are finicky whether you use the pin dekes or not. I'd say if you only have one pintail whistle and are trying to mimic the noise of 6 pintails... you have enough pintail decoys.

yes they will saw it this past weekend. Had pin tail dekes set up to the far right, and a pocket of divers on the left. PIntails passed up the pintail dekes to come land in the pocket of divers.

Just keep all the Pintails together and away from the other decoys, Pintails are a little prejudice.

Ain't that the truth. They do mix up with Mallards though- I've seen that back home up north before.
