    I've hunted doves over sunflowers... I know that they can be manipulated..

    But what about for ducks?

    Absolutley not, nor have I ever seen a duck in a sunflower field. Nodak is loaded with sunflower fields and I have never seen any sort of waterfowl in them.

    I actually did see Canada geese using a harvested sunflower field in ND one year out of ten I hunted there.

    I would think the sunflowers would rot quickly in water. I do know guys who plant sunflowers for doves and then flood them after dove season. There is other food in the impoundment that the ducks prob use mostly but they do hammer the ducks. I bet ducks would eat them as long as they arent rotten. I throw some out every now and then and they eat them right up in my back yard.
