Teal season preparation

Started pumping water on my teal hole near my duck camp, The Quack Shack, this weekend outside Lake Village, Arkansas. Another duck season approaching soon!

Did you plant anything in the hole before you started flooding it?

GB3,Not sure if I told ya bout my unfortunate luck just yesterday and not sure how I managed this but lost set of keys dat had boat key and bunch of other keys while AJ and I were busting it bush hogging our deer food plots!!Guess somewhat of a blessing in disguise as the newest Coast Guard regulations require a functional kill-switch and mine long ago became less than functional so now got new ignition switch ordered for ole gal and should be in Th!!Now gotta go through fun process of replacing bunch of keys,including key to deer lease and bunch of keys to locks and got utility trailer locked to tow vehicle,guess dat lock gonna get cut!!Frustrating to say the least.De Nuck and Futz Duo did find some willing teal last season,too bad de regular duck season was quite the bust!!Hope de Quack Shack holds plenty teal and good luck up there.Wifey and I been busy re-certifying for Medicare Open Enrollment!!

Great news!Apparently I musta had Biden moment after coming home from tough day bush hogging tall grass at deer lease as I musta set keys down on small table just next to our swimming pool. Lucky me as I was about to cut lock off of utility trailer and still do need to replace ignition switch on SouthFork !At least my Biden moments occur maybe once per week while he has em 24/7!!!

BluShamu,

Wasn’t able to plant any crops on this pond this season, it’s a new spot I just acquired. Was able to bush hog pond in selected spots before pumping water in. Lots of natural grasses and feed. It’s an abandoned catfish pond bordering Boeuff River. Next year it will be planted in corn and millet!

Mande, I’m glad you found your keys.
I always keep my boat key on separate, floating key chain. That bush hogging in this heat will mess with your mind!

GB3,Nothing but good news here as I really needed to change the ignition switch and the keys were on floating key ring. Now I should have four keys to boat(assuming new ignition switch keys match original keys)Guess I could separate lease key and keys to utility trailer. Yep getting beat up by heat plays tricks on de ole Noggin.

Wiz,I can tell ya first-hand ya needs to go sees GB3's fine Lake Village Quack Shack.De Nuck and Futz Duo thoroughly enjoyed our trip up there few seasons ago.Locally,only teal season for us was worth even it.Shame as local ponds choked fulla grass!!!Guess migratory patterns shifted AWAY from us more towards W!!
