Food?

If you could hunt over only one kind of duck food for the rest of your life what would it be? Rice, corn, acorns, whatever?

There are still things worth dying for and 1 of those things is freedom.

I love Geese

Genesis 27:3 Now then, get your weapons, quiver and bow, go out in the fields and hunt some wild game for me.

corn is hard to beat, plus if you ever go up in a plane, corn really stands out from the sky. cut or not, it has distinct look

Acorns in a big pin oak flat. Flooded corn is tough to beat but comes in second.

But seriously...if I had to pick one food it would acorns in the timber. So much fun it shouldn't be legal. Millet is probably the most consistent food. But hard to hunt over if you lack a layout or permanent blind.

I guess I would choose corn, but typically when I have hunted, corn was better when it was getting pretty cold later in the season. Moist soil has been better earlier on when it was a bit warmer out.

I also love hunting smart weed! Cover the layout in the red deliciousness and go to town

Field peas! :biggrin:

I've kept track over the past 4 or 5 years on trips to NoDak and best days are always in pea fields. They will choose to feed on peas over barley and wheat pretty much every time. Not a lot of corn in area I hunt.

In MO I haven't yet figured out what I'd like best. Hard to beat mallards in flooded corn tho.
