    Has anyone heard of making a molasses and corn block for ducks? As it was explained to me you make a block like you would for deer but then dump it into your pond and as time passes it slowly releases the corn along with a slick sweet coating atop the water. So as the ducks that feed in the pond fly to other ponds they bring back other ducks that taste the molasses from what is on the first ducks wings. Anyone heard of anything like that? It would be neat just to make your pond more popular in the off season to find out what all in in the area right? Anyone know how to make one?

    No. But Id love to hear who hammered out the logistics on this one and the story behind it.

    Is that considered baiting?

    oh, it's the cat's meow and it's not considered baiting because cattle farmers use blocks like that for cattle. really for a good sized pond it takes several, if not more, blocks to really put a mollases film on the water. once you get that put in another block every 3 days and keep banging away at the ducks it will bring in. a lot of times you can't keep the ducks shot out of the pond.

    I bet the Game Wardens disagree.
