I'm not really familiar with the west coast, but what is their primary food source around? Have you tried contacting a local biologist for an opinion? I had a buddy do that and the biologist pretty much did everything but pick up the check, and it now holds a lot of fowl.
I have tried to email some biologist with no response. Oregon's department of fish and wildlife probably has a lot more to worry about than my few acres. I have been looking at Pennington duck mixes, they look good. Anyone ever used their seeds?
I'm just across the big river from you. The cheapest we've found is good ole feed corn (the type daries grow for cylage. It is legal to leave standing all winter just make sure you leave paths to and from the blind and your decoy area because if you knock down any corn on your way to and from the blind they then consider it baiting. Because you can only scatter grain as a normal result of harvest. let me know how it goes. start tight away and you still got time to get it done for this season YOU WILL HAVE THE BEST SHOOTING AROUND>
if it floods i would say to prolly plant some of that rice that will grow and is suppose to be one of the favorites for ducks.....but thats about all i know of for the west coast, but in south dakota on the other hand if u flood a corn field you'll be in duck heaven.
