    So, what does Mr. Montna do, in conjunction with DU, etc., differently than other rice producers?

    Holds water when others are draining fields and keeps a lot of set aside fields as refuge.
    The guy actually does a lot for the ducks, I'm sure he's getting grant money and DU kickbacks but he does raise a lot of birds on his land.

    Hasn't there been countless arguments on the California forums about big dollars clubs doing this exact same thing? Just sayin'...:flame

    Montna’s properties where all this conservation is occurring are big dollar clubs. Well maybe not “big dollar,” but about as pricey as non-equity clubs get. On the low end, you’re looking at $12K for a 3 man blind in a rice club on a rotation, on the high end around $12K/seat. All of his clubs are 20 gauge or smaller, weekends and Wednesdays only, no hunting after noon, and some of them charge a $50 “fine” for every hen shot.

    Don’t get me wrong, the guy does a lot for ducks (and a lot of other species too), but the guy makes a lot of money off the ducks too.
