The hardest thing for me is to convenience our club members that planting corn sounds like a great attraction. However, if you do not set aside refuge acres or let the unit rest, the ducks will get shot out pretty quickly. Most of our members are not dedicated enough to stay out of a refuge or let an area rest while the birds start using it. Moist soil management on the other hand is natural and definitely a lot cheaper than planting corn.[/QUOTE] Mack you said it with having discipline on letting your place rest. We have a small piece that normally has two hunting spots. That is reduced to one when the birds are using the other end of the field. If cold air is forecast maybe no hunting at all for a few days hoping birds will keep pools open. I agree that it doesn't make sense on going over board with the row cropping on WRP's....A little bit of google earth history images will tell the story from year to year.
