View Full Version : Ducks Question
08-27-2007, 07:09 PM
I was out scouting today and just happened to pull up to the lake as the ducks were coming off. I followed them to a stubble field and a hay field. I guess the local fry plant dumps their recycle water there and thats where the ducks are congregating. I was wondering ,because I know they are not eating the hay, will they keep going there or is this just a one in a million chance?

If the field in question is partially flooded, or has a puddle in it, there should be a a ton of feed in there for them. Flooded pasture is a real treat for ducks and geese. Scouting is everything....watch them for a couple of days, if they're consistenly bombing in there, then you should have a real good spot for opening morning.

Hey Ryan, from my experience they will keep going there as long as the supply last. We have that challenge with Geese. They keep going into the same fields until there is no more food, then move into peas, then wheat. We have even set up 100's of decoys across from this field and to no avail, nothing will come into our setup, may a straggler or two but not much. We can't get access to the field so we are out of luck. :cry: Have to rely on pea fields after harvest. If you can set up in there though, you will have a great shoot.

Ive got permission for that field but not the field next to it. I need to track the farmer down and ask. They were bombing in there pretty hard tonight. More ducks than geese, the geese were landing in the field next to the flooded one.
