Planting Millet

We have a duck lease for the first time ever and we are going to plant millet. Any tips that might help us as we go through this process?

Might want to contact KDWPT northeast regional office. I have had questions about some of the public hunting areas in that area and they were more than happy to answer my questions. Good folks.

Ecat ; Congrats on aquiring your lease . My hunting buddy Mike has had his lease for 5 yrs. now and we have had some great times hunting there. As far as planting Millet goes I found a myriad of information available on the internet regarding planting specifically for duck hole applications . Millet is relatively cheap, requires a minimal amount of soil preparation, is very hardy and the ducks love it. Depending on the variety you choose you can expect a maturity date in about 70 days.

A lease has some advantages.

I hope so! Fumbles has been at the lease a lot this week. Talking to the farmer and putting together a plan for the millet planting. We are excited to see what next year brings! We will probably be making a trip or two your way in October! Maybe we can get in a hunt together.
