I can't see why not if there is food and shelter. If there are oaks with acorns then they should go in there looking for them.

Best thing to do is scout the area. :thumbsup:

The Woodies are, but I was wanting to get some Mallards in but like I said previously im not sure they will work like they do in the timber down south. I saw 30-40 of what looked like wood ducks on it last scout.

The mallards work off the river into surrounding ponds but I didnt see any in the hole.

If there are ducks using the hole, then it is definitely worth a hunt. I would consider the mallards a bonus, however. Put a couple mojos out and it might draw them in. Ask outlaw for his mojo diagram, he knows a few things about hunting ducks in timber.

I haven't seen ducks in flooded timber around here. But that's because I don't know of any seasonally flooded timber near here.

I know of a recently flooded place on private land in Fayette county where they recently created a small pond in some woods, but all the trees have died because it isn't a natural marsh. But they won't allow people to hunt.

There are plenty of ponds in the woods that they will use, but that is a bit different. If there is food or they use it as a refuge / loafing spot, then I'm sure ducks will work.
