    I thought the farmer was going to leave rice field stubble in the field. Found it he burned and disced it. What will that do the amount of birds that use the farm?

    Thanks

    They won't use the farm now....disced up field makes it too hard for the birds to walk around and socialize.

    Assuming it's flooded...burned rice fields work out just fine out west.

    Man, ain't nothing like getting the chance to spend the season wading around in a disced up field. Count your blessings, and see your cardiologist before opening day.

    You mean the "can't run a 2-wheel drive 4-wheeler without balling up the front every five feet buckshot?" That's the fun stuff.
