Take a look at some of the other threads. Their are a few people that have different ways of hunting ducks/geese over a fake pond. Alot of it depends on your field and what there feeding on. I have found that two different ponds work better than one big one. I have also found that hunting on ice with the ponds is awesome. Alot of it is trial and error. I couldn't tell you all the stuff that I learned over the years hunting over fake ponds. Start out with 50 square foot not round but pond looking shape and find a deep point in a field that they pass over or are working in, slap it down and make it look just like the field had flooded. Give me some examples of fields you might be hunting and I can better help you.

I have not ever tried this or seen it tried except for the descriptions on this forum, but I plan on trying it this winter when every thing freezes up. It may help me from walking x number of miles looking for a place that is open or that I can bust up.
The glass is not half empty or half full, it's just twice as big as it needs to be.

If you miss a lot of birds, does that make you a conservationist?
