    Does the block float or sink to the bottom, out of sight? Block need sun to help break it down, or just the water?

    naw, you got to use it where cows are. ducks don't think a thing about cows and they love those blocks. just put the block at waters edge and the ducks will take it from there.

    I think I am going to try that sometime soon and see how well it works. I was told to get a 5 gallon bucket add 1/3 corn 1/3 molasses and 1/3 corn starch, mix let sit and then it is like a block that will sink to the bottom of the lake and that it would take a month or so to fully disolve. I think it sounds great. I wouldnt think it was baiting if it were not season and you stopped before it came in. But I am not sure I guess I better check before hand.

    man we got cows all over our lease around every pond...I dont know why ive been wasting my time planting millet all these years when I could have just accidentally set the molasses blocks a little too close to the waters edge;);).

    I think ill just stick to the natural stuff cause I dont see our warden finding that excuse very funny:no

    I bet a block of molasses with spinner wings would be just the ticket.

    No, in many states, any available unprocessed "non-residual" grain on the farm is considered bait. BECAUSE ducks don't think a thing about cows.

    In some aggressive states, the hunter doesn't have to even KNOW that loose grain is present, for the hunter to get a ticket for baiting.

    I have heard it is supposed to be amazing. The other thing I have heard but never tried is sweet potato peels!
    This old man that I hunted with most of my life had all sorts of things he said worked back in the day. never tried any of them but would love to!
