field hunting by the river

Postby Kansas_Killer » Sun Dec 21, 2008 5:20 pm

I have a small corn field along a river in kansas. The field is probably only 2-3 acres big. I have never seen ducks land in the field and was wondering if it is a big enough field for ducks to land in. They are thousands of mallards that fly up and down the river all day long. I was wondering if I could pull some ducks down into the field if I setup 1/2 dozen field decoys and about a dozen floaters?

What river you huntin near? I hunt along the river here quite a bit also. River birds here are are hard to pattern, one day they will drop right in then next time wont even turn a head. I would give it a shot, dont give up if they dont come in first day.

decoys are a very good idea, especially with water near.
