Dry bean field lease! Need major help and advice!!!

Postby Speck100 » Sat Nov 17, 2012 11:26 pm

I got in on a lease this year in western ky by the Ballard county refuge we was told we would have water but with this drought and a horrible water table are field is a big low dry spot. Do y'all think we will still be able to kill ducks off of it? We have a pretty decent field spread and a lot of mojos. I know ducks fly over it all the time going to and from the refuge and flying the river so we will have them coming over us. I just don't know if they will come in at all? Any suggestions???

I wouldn't say it's impossible, but I wouldn't get my hopes up high.

We hunt dry bean fields all the time. It's always interesting how people hunt differently in different areas of the country.

I hunted beans last year and had some success on ducks and geese but it helps if you have mojos but I don't think it's as attractive to ducks as corn is but it's still very do-able and if you have lots flying over that should help. The only problem is hiding in it with a layout blind which you usually will have to hide it in a waterway or fencerow of some sort.

Was in on a lease at sandridge over there and ducks wanted to hit the mallard shell decoys behind the pit in the winter wheat. Had a small water hole probably 10x10 yards wide and 29 mojos running

Take them layout blinds and put them as close together as possible And brush the. With plants around the edge of the field. Random grasses and weeds. We do this and it makes it look like a berm in the middle of the field.
