Wait till the ducks and geese find it. It'll be cleared in no time. A buddy had a lease and the same thing happened. Once the ducks and geese worked on it a few nights, it was all cleared with just a little stubble left.

We have an absolute ton of fields like this right now. I don't think much of it has had a chance to get headed out but it over a foot tall in lots and lots of fields in this area. Not to mention most combines tend to malfunction near pit blinds. We have tons of ducks right now.

Not so fast. You see this a lot in Louisiana too this year. In Louisiana we mostly call it "volunteer rice", but call it stubble rice, regenerated rice, volunteer rice, providence rice or ratoon rice, it will all get you in trouble and there's a bunch of it this year.

We all know DU short stops the ducks in Ar-kansas and Mizzou.

Right. Because Louisiana is one of their most lucrative states in terms of fundraising.

I've heard this before.

Ya'll all keep drinking the kool-aid. All I know is I use to hunt mallards in the cypress swamps on our farm. They were back there by the thousands. Now....a few woodies no mallards....

I could understand an off year but NONE NOW.

You explain it.

What does DU do that would make ducks stop flying south, that a college educated outdoors man would actually believe? heat ponds? giant nets? perhaps mallard intercepting surface to air guided missiles? silo sized feeders with deer neutralizing tasers?

Salvania? Poor drainage over time? That's why happened to marapaus swamp around my camp.

The conspiracy theories make me lol

Ducks simply don't come down south in large numbers like they used to. Or these so called "surveys" are complete bull shite and duck numbers aren't what they say they are.

Made a trip to Arkansas a couple years back and they say their birds are being short stopped in Missouri.

I'm not blaming DU but I also don't support them at all. Anybody that says they do anything good for the regular hunter down in Louisiana, I would say . I don't see it.

Did you ever shoot ducks over a pond that was fed with corn? They WILL NOT STOP coming in once they find it.

Go find a nice pond in the marsh with widgeon grass chocked full. The gray ducks will lit on your head and keep coming. I've seen it in the Sabine Wildlife area in the 80's. Damn gray ducks wouldn't stop coming all over us.



They now break up the ice and keep flows and ponds open for the ducks to stay. Plant more fields for the exclusive use of waterfowl and are probably responsible for those mallard/pintail hybrids ya'll like.

Moral is, as long as they got feed and they can get to it they ain't moving.

rules have been like that for my whole waterfowling career.... and always enforced... somewhat..

guys.. the rise of no till farming, other changes in farming practices and... increase hunting pressure in northern states have done more to manipulate duck migration than ANYTHING DU could do or even afford to do...


also.. many places over run with salvinia now hold NO ducks.. which also hurts the ability of some nearby areas to hold ducks..

Or 2nd crop. I helped a friend cut some of his the other day and he made 19 barrels per acre. Pretty dam good.

I think the newer varieties may have something to do with that too.
