Rice Fields - Ice Eater

Now that the season is over, been thinking about next year. Has anyone used an Ice Eater in their fields? It looks like most have an optimal operating depth of 2-3', wondering if it will be way to shallow in the flooded rice.

they work good for us. sometimes we will put 2 out at the same place. there were several mornings that's we would have been out of luck if it weren't for the ice eaters..

Did a hunt down your way last weekend with an outfitter. All fields frozen when we got there, needless to say hunting sucked. I can't understand why and "outfitter" wouldn't be prepared for this situation and have a couple on hand. Especially when dudes drop $6000 for a three day stay. :crying:

Up here in MN in front of my blind it was to shallow, but we just dug a hole down about 15 inches and it worked great.
