Question about ten mile pond

Postby BooneVFL88 » Mon Dec 30, 2013 10:31 am

Hey all,

A couple friends and I are thinkin about checking out TMP. but we have never been there. Just windering how similar it is to otter slough as far as parties/positions, terrain, etc. I have heard there is more need for a boat here. Jus wantin to get some info. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

They have been hunting 13-14 postions. Number of parties varies of course but usually a lot more parties than spots to hunt. A boat is not necessary. Terrain? Flat. :lol3: I mean it is south of Benton. I have not been there this year so I don't really know about any crops planted. Sorry I can't be any more help.

Crops? What crops? Area is the poorest I've seen in years in regards to corn crop.

The cover is SPARSE!! Good luck hiding 3-4 people in most units. This area is the area of good ole boy networks- where duck dynasty kids come by the 100 to draw, and the old timers hang out at the draw desk like they are the mafia. Heck even the former area manager treated this place like his own private duck club.

Truthfully, don't waste your time! Check out Coon Island- no draw, similar to otter.

Besides all that-- no ducks.. Ducks that are here are stale as your moldy bread in pantry

If your gonna go to coon, cover is really sparse. Late summer flooding took all the crops. Not worth the effort.

Thats all weve been seeing in Arkansas the past few weeks. No ducks, thought that they might be up north a bit

I'm afraid our ducks passed right through us this year.. When we had the week long ice event, finally had weather north to push down birds; everything was locked up!

Need a reverse migration, especially now zones are closed

There are still thousands of birds north of the south zone
Good enough for the girls I date.

Ten Mile has been really tough this year. Not worth the time most days.
