Hunters from foreign countries very often are planted about 70-100 pieces of stuffed birds at once. This makes sense because in a large flock at the reservoir sits and a greater number of ducks, which directly depends on quality and quantity of production.
Mass duck hunting starts early in the autumn, when the juveniles have grown, and the old out of the strong places. Ducks gather in flocks and make regular flights to places rich with food. On a rainy and cloudy day, wild ducks fly in the daytime without fear of predatory birds, which at this time does not hunt.
