    My non hunting in-laws just built a house on a wooded creek and are excited about a couple of ducks and geese they saw. So I suggested putting up a wood duck box. Now they’re super pumped so if anyone around there knows where they could get one, it would be most appreciated. Thanks.

    If you can't fine one locally, does anyone around you sell cypress lumber? Would be pretty easy to make one

    Just make sure the post you use isn't purchased at Home Depot, Lowes, etc. They no longer carry treated lumber that is rated for ground or water contact. You need to go to a lumber yard for a Grade 4x... level. There are numerous levels, so you'll have to ask the clerk. I learned the hard way a few years ago when my posts crumbled in a few year's time.

    Thanks woodie, I have only 1 that I’ll have to buy a post for. Use to be they all were basically rated for ground contact and you didn’t have to worry about that crapola ..
