What to do

Postby KAhunter » Thu Sep 01, 2011 11:46 am

Our 6 acre impoundment has taken a beating this year. We have lost atleast an acre to 1 1/2 acres to bears/deer and with this hurricane 80% has been knocked over. My bro, Dad and I are debating on what to do. I say we leave it as it is and hunt the larger areas that the bears have knocked to the ground(up to 1/4 acres size hole). We also are talking about harvesting 16 rows in the middle the length of the impoundment to open it up so birds can get in easier. I think we can get birds in it with the corn still in there. Any thoughts?? In years past we have harvested about 24 rows in the middle and 8 to 16 on the north end to open it up with pretty good success. I know people who dont cut any at all and I am thinking this may be the way to go. Just curios and wanna see peoples opinions. Last year we killed mostly wood ducks with a decent number teal and ring necks and some widgeon, mallards and blacks. Thanks.

Cut a smaller hole than normal opposite the bear/deer damaged area and let the birds guide the rest of your actions.
