Smh, ducks just donít migrate here anymore no matter what we do in Louisiana they wonít come here because they donít have to no more, heated crop fields that donít ice etc, we have the same feed we had thatís not the issue, the issue is other states stopping the natural migration of a federal animal!

Ice machines is something people put in a pond and it has a prop on it and it turns the water. Keeps the water moving so that it wonít freeze. Heated ponds up north wonít freeze. Its things like this that keep the birds north instead of coming south.
That you guys think this really makes any kind of significant impact is quite funny and somewhat sad. But please donít stop posting, I always enjoy a good laugh

Initially it doesnít make a huge difference. Itís the long term where it counts. When ducks migrate they imprint to the younger birds to migrate and places to go. So as the yrs go fewer and fewer birds migrate. Iím not saying it makes a huge difference in how many birds come down but it does make a difference. Pair that with the declining duck numbers almost 10million birds down in 3 yrs then you have a recipe for less birds coming down. Go ahead and laugh. Itís my opinion backed with some slight research. Not much but I feel like itís a worthy hypothesis to state. I also still feel strongly about getting rid of electronics in the field for duck hunting. Thatís just my opinion.
