Other fields are used to roost birds. As far as them eating all the food, you would be shocked at the amount of grain that will sprout in this field next spring. All together we will flood over 600 acres of fields that we won't hunt. We flood them as early as we can. I hope to be showing you guys some specks next week.

I asked because I am going to start flooding a 7 acre field next year and about 4 acres of timber. Just wondering if we should wait to flood the corn until the season has already started. We plan to flood the timber as soon as the trees turn colors (septemberish).

I wondering if they could clear the first level of ears in month.

I think you need to flood it when the most birds are going to be moving through. Whether that's during the season or not. You need to be imprinting those birds to come back every year.

It will depend on the number of birds that use it. Also, be careful of flooding your trees that early. They need to be dormant first.

That's why I said "ish" some years they turn in September some years they turn in late October.

It's hard to say how many birds, nothing like you see, maybe a couple to a few hundred wood ducks and mallards.

The three specks that stayed on our lake all summer have some new friends this morning. 10 new specks arrived overnight and were getting reacquainted with their long lost buddies this morning.

They were pretty shocked by the dogs and the human being 30 yards from them this morning. The three residents weren't bothered at all.

Pretty steady increase in birds since we started pumping last Wednesday. These were kind enough to pose for a cell phone photo op. Image

well if "working around all that" literally meant working there, in the midst of it day in and day out, as opposed to some desk job, well I think I could handle that :biggrin:

I just meant it's even more distracting in person. I had to stop the piece of equipment I was on to take a picture just to share with y'all. I'm not complaining, it's just hard to focus.

You're not the first person to say that. It's very rewarding, but you need to enjoy manual labor.
