For those who enjoy duck hunting in the fields, this is the place.
Do you all have good success hunting duck in a dry cornfield? There are many ponds and a river in the area of the fields of corn, but I only have permission on the corn fields.

Yes, I actually do better decoying ducks in the corn than on ponds for some reason. It helps to have a mojo duck or some motion in the field spread though. I like to use goose decoys out in the field, too so I can shoot geese and ducks but you can also use your water duck decoys in the spread. Mojos are like crack to ducks in fields and they work probably 10x better on dry land than on water.

I love shooting greenheads in corn. Probably fastest action around and almost limits everytime. I only field hunt ducks when they have been in the field in large numbers though. In my area field hunting is only good when brutally cold and rivers about 90 percent froze. One good thing about field hunting in the cold is it is a 10am to 3 pm hunt.

Corn is crack to waterfowl. Wet or dry, the birds will use it. Having a robo is pretty much a must for field hunting ducks
