flooded timber

Postby KAhunter » Tue Aug 23, 2005 9:35 pm

I have picked up hunting rights to hunt some flooded timber in va 2 years ago and have done a fair amount of hunting with good success... I have wanted to plant some duck potato or wild rice or any vegetation that may live well in that area but i cant seem to figure out what will work best.. anyone got any good ideas... i have heard about busting out teh beaver dams and plant millet but i dont have time to come back and continually bust it out and what not... any ideas???

Can't help you by my experience,never planted anything for ducks.
What about your state biologist,try giving them a call.

My private hunting lease Is on a rice farm but the fields are not flooded I hunt reservoirs, there a about 1.2A island in middle I plant with Corn in the middle and rice around edges with little Milo mixed in but I do not hunt this island i hunt about 100yds off it where I plant Biologic waterfowl blend seems to be working well...but for you in timber I think biologic would be good.

how much are u hunting in, that will play the factor on what to grow that biologic stuff works but u only can have a max of 12" of water for it to grow right u might need to look into something else is ur over a foot of water

As mentioned, check with your state DNR as to what would be best to plant.
