Food Plots

Postby Hunter_the_hunter » Mon May 20, 2013 8:41 pm

I have a pond that varies in depths from about 8 feet to 12 inches and it is currently producing reed grass that grows at the bottom of the pond and the ducks seemed to love it this past season. I am wondering if I will need to plant anything else in and around the pond to expand the variety of ducks for next season. All I saw last season was ring necks woodies and mergansers. Any help appreciated!

Can you manage the water, ie drain it then flood it again? You can try some arrow arrum and other natural stuff in the shallower areas that stay wet all year.

Its always duck season, there is just a long break from february to september.

No the water is not manageable it holds water yearround. Would that affect me being able to plant anything?

try arrow arum, duck potato, bulrush. Contact wildlife nurseries they have all the stuff you need.
