My property has several smaller ponds and one larger 3 acre impoundment (moist soil surrounded by corn). Every morning a couple hundred mallards, woodies and teal land in the impoundment, loaf all day and then go to roost around 7:45 every evening. My problem is that about half of these ducks roost in another small pond on my property about 100 yards from the main impoundment. Another hundred or so ducks from elsewhere roost in this pond too. No ducks roost in the impoundment (but they were earlier). My fear is this, come opening morning (September 23rd), when we start blasting all of those roosting ducks will take off in a hurry. I know I have many options that include these... - be there when they come to roost now and hope they roost elsewhere - scare them off the roost opening morning and hope they trickle back in to feed - do nothing Thoughts?
