Flooded timber advice

Postby cfaulk33 » Tue Apr 09, 2013 11:16 pm

Hey guys I have a hole in our timber that holds water year around and I hunt it early season before the river gets out of the banks. There are a few dead trees and stumps in the middle that I was thinking of clearing out this year to open the hole up. I've been told not to mess with it from a couple other guys around here bc it won't look as natural and then some say to do it bc it's only a few dead logs and stumps. Looking for some advice on what to do from some of u veteran timber hunters. Oh and I am also planting corn in and around this hole for the ducks and deer as well.

Check local baiting laws to see if you can plant for the purpose of killing animals.

We can as long as its standing plants. We can't bait them by putting out corn or anything to hunt over but as long as they are standing crops we are good. Also forgot to mention that we are mainly hunting mallards and woodies. That's what we see mostly around here that and a few geese

I'd say open it up a little. Give em a runway, they'll dump right in. And, DONT TELL ANYBODY WHERE IT IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry, a little late to forum. I always leave the pond the way I found it. I hunt a beaver pond as well for Woodies. My pond changes every year from the beaver anyway. It would be a real job trying to keep it open the way I want. The best way I've found to keep the Woodies around is to build some nesting boxes. The Beaver usually do a good job themselves of keeping some shooting lanes open through the trees.
