Hey everyone, I posted this in the puddle duck section to, so sorry if you've already read it but... this has puzzled me for about two years. My grampa owns a farm in SE Wisconsin that I hunt on. So here's the basic laydown of his land, corn and alfalfa fields all around it, a creek and a pond. The creek I've jumped a few wood ducks on over the years and the fields I hunt for geese.
But never have I seen a duck or goose on the pond, but I don't understand why!? The pond is surrounded by shrubs such as honey suckle and a few trees. The pond is lower than everything else (fields and such) Kind of like a bowl. It's a decent sized pond, probably 70 or 80 yards across and about 50 yards wide. the creek passes it about 20 yards away. I can't seem to figure it out though, geese fly over all the time, and ducks too but they are never sitting on it. With all the corn and wooded creek you think ducks or wood ducks would be flocking to it? Has anyone else heard of something like this before? If you need any more info on the pond, ask and I'll try to give you it the best I can.
I would just like to figure out why there's never any waterfowl on what seems to be a perfect hunting pond
