Re: Housing questions

Thanks for the reply. I just read a blog on feeding so I got that covered. I ordered two decoys last night. And started the dawn song at 6:30 in the morning and played it for one hour, I didn't see anything though.

Re: Housing questions

Thanks for the reply. The Martin house is 300ft from our house and 400ft from the barn. I thought that they may not like people. I can move them,how close to the house should they be?
