Default Crawfish Farms

My friend is in the process of building a crawfish farm near where we hunt deer and ducks. Will the rice fields be a duck magnet to duck hunt? I wasn't sure if anyone hunts ducks over already established rice fields for crawfish because this is all new to me.

Yes like a magnet. All along hwy 190 from Port Allen to Kinder are crawfish ponds that are leased to duck hunters during the fall and winter.

There are many crawfish ponds that are leased to duck hunters but very few of them are duck magnets. Typically crawfish farms hold lots of water, water that is too deep for dabblers to feed in. They may roost some birds but if they can't get to a food source they'll be gone after the first shoot. Ideal rice field conditions is very low water withmud clumps showing 2-4" most crawfish farms keep water above knee high.

Spoonbills love love love deep crawfish ponds. So since spoonbills are ducks, you could say that it will indeed be a duck magnet. A spoonbill and black jack magnet.
