Ducks in the wild

FOOD PLOTS FOR DUCKS

Ducks are migratory and have large and extensive ranges covering continents from feeding sites for winter and summer habitats. Habitat acreage can cover five to twenty acres depending upon how large the water site is.

FOOD PLOT SEEDS FOR DUCKS AND HOW TO USE THEM

Ducks will be attracted to the more open landing sites on and in the water. Feeding areas have to incorporate the water edges and adjacent dryer land. A diverse range of food sources can be offered in site preparation. Providing food plots sources for ducks are more labor intensive because of the added work to supply water for flooding and draining. It is also more labor intensive than most other sites because lands must be used that can be flooded and drained according to the planting season.

Special grasses, tuberous plants, millets, and reeds need to be planted on the dryer land and when almost mature then flooded to attract ducks during their migration. Some seeds have harder seed coats which prevent them from molding until they have a chance to germinate and mature. Side strip planting of grains such as corn and millets adjacent to water sources can help to attract them. Dwarf early corn, millets, tuberous plants that grow in the water.

Rice is also a popular food plot seed planting for ducks. Ducks love rice and it will grow in wet areas or even flooded areas.

Facts About Ducks & Their Environment

Flying DuckDucks are as varied as the habitats they frequent ; being by and large a migratory species this leads to many different diet needs and habitats that may vary. But there is one constant and that is they all need water to survive. For every water habitat there is a species of duck that has developed over time and though the habitats are similar there are noted differences in each species. From coloration, bill shape and region to personalities differences the duck enthusiast has much to learn.

For many years duck populations were on the decrease as more and more habitat and climatic droughts took their toll, man made disasters like oil spills and pollution had and still have a heavy impact on migratory species. Conservation agencies and renewed interest in saving and protecting the environment has helped to renew populations once almost decimated. Without people on the original lands the native grasses, trees, millets, and vegetative and non-vegetative resources were readily available to millions of birds. Of course the Indians had already been hunting them for hundreds of years before Europeans ever thought to cross the ocean and with their arrival the large farms were planted to provide grain and crops for his family and livestock.

This event led to the the migrations starting to depend on the field stands left after harvesting. Good for the ducks and good for the farmers who hunted this extra food source. But today many of the big farms are gone and the lands taken over by communities not suited for living with the wild population. Lands are drained, "unsightly, mosquito infested swamps" are pushed over, dried out and remade for our comfort. Loss of habitat and  the natural food sources put a strain of the duck populations and helped in the decrease the number of eggs laid. Along with that wet area went a vast reserve of native growth needed for food, safety, mating, nesting and predator free areas.

Food Plots to Plant for Ducks

More and more organizations and individuals are helping to keep and return some of the habitats for ducks and other water fowl species by planting food plots and letting the land return to some of the wilderness. Food plots are planted by many hunters and preservationists alike hoping to return to nature some small amount of habitat that has been lost and a place to visit and watch these beautiful birds. In good habitat conditions ducks will actually lay more eggs and increase their population substantially. Native plant species are being encouraged to grow and are being planted in many areas to return the land to a more "natural" setting.

Add to the food plots with corn, millets for dry land, sorghums, black sunflower seeds and any other grains that do well in your region. When the plants ( such as corn) have matured and dried cut or push over to the ground ducks have better access to the seeds. Ducks will also eat the seeds from deer vetch and buckwheat.
