There's a pinned / locked topic above with suggestions on setting decoy patterns.

upwind so they drag the birds over the decoys, if the wind is to your rear then right in the middle some 5 or 10 yards out. the birds often spook when they get near so bear that in mind. Feral's love them and try to land on it.

The art of pigeon shooting is to get under a flight line. For me mobility is therefore more important than kit. To carry large amounts of kit requires a quad bike or a 4X4 which will do more crop damage than the pigeon. Your farmer will be greatly relieved to see a pair of boots in preference to a set of tyres. I'd leave the 100kgs yomps to the SAS and unless you fancy two or three trips by 'Shanks's Pony"  with the additional prospective weight of a further 50 - 100 dead pigeons,  then I'd avoid too much stuff.

Remember, many shooters are OCD over kit and this obsession is targeted by suppliers of kit. One gun, cartridges, hide, seat  and a dozen decoys. Two days recognisance in ratio to one days shooting. Find the flight line and get under it.
