Find out where they are going on the river,and set decoys up where there want to be,might sure you can have wind at your back so when birds come in to land they present vital areas good clean kills,also make you are hidden well hope this helps a bit.

Have you got deeks?  The hammond parrie caller is the best one imho.  Parries a less callable than mallards and they normally know where they want to go so if you are in the right spot then you probably don't need deeks and calls although they always help of course.  You could always chuck a few mallard deeks out if you don't have any parrie ones.
  

This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine.  Without my rifle I am useless, without me it is useless.

a couple of white headed decoys and loads of #2 or #3s let them get in close and dont be in a hurry to rush out and pick up downed bird if others are close as they will often come back and sometimes are almost divebombing you if one is sqauking on ground allowing others to be shot.
