Why pump so early? Will the birds hold for 6 weeks?

They'll hold for eight or more. These aren't natural "flight" birds. They'll hold from the 3rd week in October to at least mid-December, assuming that the weather don't get too crazy.

Something I have wondered for a while.

How long does it take birds to clear a flooded field of corn of food?
lets say 100 birds and 1 acre

good point, I was trying to use nice round numbers...

If anyone has a good estimate, and it involves 10,000 birds and 100 acres I would still like to know. I will just have to do the math for translation in to Michigan terms.

Indiana estimates are you ready 2 ducks 10 acres, they could die of old age before they run out of food. But in Indiana they only stay a few hours before realizing they are lost. hope that helps.

Im sure it does, but an estiumate is all I was looking for.

When do you guys see the ducks move off a field because there is no more food in it?

Thats all I am asking

They'll move off fields that are full of food. It's hard to say. Mostly influenced by pressure. Or so it seems.

I've seen pintails light and grub around for 5 minutes, then leave if no food. They don't waste time in a barren field. If we pump early the geese eat the fields out.

This assumes feeding ducks. That's why I alluded to them not being "flight" ducks. What he's flooding is probably roost ground. There are another 2,850 acres with plenty of good food around that get flooded just before season opens. The goal is to let em feed until its gone, but also establish security in the habitat. He probably won't hunt that field all season. He's jus making a nice, quiet spot for em to stop in for a drink and take a nap before sliding over to the buffet, where they get their butts blown off.

Cannon nailed. We are stopping birds now. I have zero concerns about food. All the food in the world won't do me any good if the birds have passed us. It's all about the sanctuary. I've recorded color marked geese that returned and wintered on our farm for five consecutive years. We have a number of fields that we will flood when we are ready for the birds to be there. Other fields are used to roost birds. As far as them eating all the food, you would be shocked at the amount of grain that will sprout in this field next spring. All together we will flood over 600 acres of fields that we won't hunt. We flood them as early as we can. I hope to be showing you guys some specks next week.
