    I've always had great luck in fields on rainy days. And as far as decoys I always try and make them land at the back of my spread. And as bad as I hate to say this. This is one of those places a robo that you can turn on and off wil HELP!!!:smack:

    x2... Try to manage your activities where you have an excuse to sleep in on rainy days. Work is always a decent excuse to not be hunting in the rain.:biggrin:

    Was in a field this morning and killed two limits. I have been told to abide by this golden rule and you would do just fine. " Cloudy day's in the field, blue bird days in the timber".

    I would think off of a sandbar would be just like a field. Wide open!! I have had a great day on the river when it was cloudy went a week ago when it was a pretty day and didn't even pick the gun up except when it was time to leave. Talk to a few guy's yesterday and didn't have any luck off of the river either.

    I'm not a expert by any means, I have common sense though.
