Using an ice eater in a rice field???

Postby Cypress_Bend » Wed Aug 07, 2013 3:20 pm

Ok I know ice eaters work great. we have had one and used it in the past but we have changed hunting location from hunting out of a flooded corn field to hunting out of a rice field with a pit in the middle of it. The question is do you think there will be enough water to run a ice eater. I am sure we will have to dig a hole for the ice eater to sit in but do you think the water will flow move around it enough to work like it is designed to.

Some of my buddies dig out holes and run ice eaters in
their rice field . Haven't seen it in action, but they claim it opens up good.
Of course ice eaters aren't near as fun as spending 3 hours doing circles in a fourwheeler and washing mud all over your decoys
and having them look like frozen snickers bars!

I had some pictures of ours running in the rice filed. It worked great, kept the hole open until we ran out of gas. Our water was just shy of two feet.

ice eater hmmm? when you think you've killed your fair share for the year, why don't you let them migrate like they're supposed to when the food source freezes up?

They're all part of the conspiracy to take your ducks, Adam.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.
