    Looking for a duck club or lease in Northeast Arkansas. Would like to plant 20 acres of corn in one spot if possible....have equipment/time to do this.

    Thanks,

    Tom.

    You are welcome to plant corn at my spot. I'd rather you do 10 acres of corn in two different spots though. Let me know when you can be there, and I'll leave the gate open. Is this a hobby of yours?

    I am semi-retired and know that flooded corn will give one the edge as others can't, won't, too Lazy, don't think about ducks until the fall, etc. Very familiar with agriculture and enjoy it....though made my mark in Construction/Development Sir.

    Bagged corn is so much cheaper and easier to do.

    True, but the man made a very nice offer. I'm shocked more haven't offered to let him plant their spots. It does the heart good to meet such an altruistic sportsman.

    Tom:

    I know everyone on the Arkie forum seems super friendly, warm and welcoming, but you never know when some scalawag from another state might sneak on over here and maybe just as a joke sign you up with that email address for some unsavory stuff to be delivered to your inbox.

    Just a suggestion that you not post that up on any internet forum, anywhere, ever.

    I've had a few field leases in corn that last few years. It seems like the geese prefer feeding in dry cornfields, but typically rice growers don't have levee systems high enough to flood corn up to the ears. FWIW, I don see much difference between flooded corn and rice in AR..... Save your bullets.

    The stalk should rot if flooded early enough? Either that or mow some strips,through it.:l

    No, the roots won't rot. Big Wind, or 50x11 snow geese could knock it down.

    In Missouri, we Plant "dirty corn, or "grassy corn"....We plant alternating strips of corn, then till the strips in between for millet , and other moist soil plants to grow naturally. You can mow, or manipulate the moist soil, but not the corn (unless you harvest it)....but we still flood up to the ears.
