My only is experience is shooting a handful in a Corn Field that butts right up to a stream about twenty yards wide. They actually have tried to land in with Goose decoys in the corn. 90% of them just keep smoking right down the creek and don't pay attention but we do have the occasional bird or two that makes the wrong move.

for the most part woodies and fields don't mix. i did hunt a field of winter wheat a few times that had woods on 3 sides and a creek behind one of those side, we killed wood ducks in that field, but i'd consider that the exception not the rule.

In my experiance I have had great success with woodies and fields. I dont chase these birds on a daily basis during the season but if I see them landing in the fields I will shurly hunt them the next day. The shoot is usually very early morning and lasts all of 15 mins. I've been able to hunt the same location two or three times before the group of woodies wise up and find another field.

I've shot woodies in a field situation only a few times- usually corn fields with ditches running the length of both sides. They just come into the goose decoys or are just flying in low to check it out.

my buddies has a silage field of corn and about 100 woodies would dry feed with the geese. they hunted early season wood ducks with layout blinds. i thought he was full of crap till i seen the pics. and they actually got 3 bands in 5 days.

every year i hunt a corn field which on one side has a river and the other side has a swamp. we hunt right in the middle of the field with layout blinds and seem to wack em out pretty good every year. usually there flying into the swamp or into the river but with the mojos and fully bodies out there the woodies seem to swing around and take a look.

Do it all the time, just another puddler that doesn't mind eating corn, wheat or even beans
