Years ago, I was studying an anthropological paper on duck decoys found in an Anasazi ruin. Some of the decoys had long ties, while others didn't.  Along with the decoys they found hollow reeds.  They assumed that the Anasazi would tie the decoys on their heads and immerse themselves underwater among the other decoys while breathing through the reeds.  When the ducks would land on the water the duck hunters would pull them underwater and drown them.  The ducks on the surface would assume the other ducks were diving for food and not be concerned.  The hunters could pull as many under as they wished with this method.
