Plant?! Just sow some yellow "acorns" soaked in cane syrup, then you will have a pile o'ducks! :toofunny: Just kidding, try some japanese millet or if you can drain it and let the natural vegetation grow up from seeds that have sunk to the bottom of the hole. Good luck!

Ok, here goes Step by Step.

Step 1. Decide what you want to plant....Millet, Milo, Wild Rice, Smart Weed, Duck Potatoe, Duck Weed, Chufa.

Step 2. go to your local Feed and Seed Store and ask them if they can get these seeds for you, (Exclude the Duck weed, That would have to be Skimmed with a net and transplanted) and give you a good deal on them. Most Feed and Seed Stores will work with you and find what you want to keep you from sending out for seeds and also to make a buck :thumbsup:

Step 3. LEAVE the Beaver Dam as it is, Do Not tear it down!

Step 4. Once you decide on what you want to plant and have gotten the Seeds, Tell us what you bought and we can tell you how to plant what you bought.

Step 5. Are we missing Something?? Are we Not Answering your Questions for you, the way you want them answered? Reason I ask, this is thread #3 were you have asked what to plant and Myself and another Moderator gave you good things to plant along with a few other Members!

Are we missing something here?

If there is a good beaver population, they will dam it back up. Just knock a big enough hole to drain most of the water during early summer. The natural vegetation and forage will flourish and the beavers will have it dammed back up by hunting season. You can also sweeten it up with millet or rice in the spots with bare soil/mud. Trust me, the only problem might be if they dam it up before anything gets a chance to grow. If that is the case bust it again. Good Luck :umm:
