What are you wanting to attract? If your wanting to attract woodies, then go to acorno.com. you can buy acorns of different varieties by the pound. Mallards, i would probably put the corn no more than 1 foot of water, but make sure the cows don't walk over it and cover your corn up.

Wood ducks love corn as much as any other duck. I like to pour a bag of dried molasses out the first few times I bait it. It covers the surface in a film and when the ducks feed on the corn it gets on their feathers, then when they go to roost the other ducks pick it off their feathers and follow them back the next day.

I have heard someone else talk about the molasses. I might have to try that. Oh yeah wood ducks love corn just as much as anything else but if you have an acorn tree around you can pour acorns out after the acorns have all fell.

You can bait them all you want as long as your not hunting over it and all the bait is removed a certain amount of time before you hunt.

I get the birds coming in with corn and then start mixing some Milo or gain sorghum in with the corn, once they figure out what the sorghum is I quit using corn

And remember that IF you're going to bait - but not hunt over the bait - the bait must be completely gone 10 days prior to hunting :jump

That's inaccurate. You don't have to be hunting over the bait. You can set up along the flight path to the bait and be found just as guilty. Further, removal means COMPLETE removal. A kernel left here or there won't cut it.

Actually it is very accurate. You have 10 days after complete removal of the corn before you can hunt it. Look it up. Notice I did say "all the bait is removed" I guess all and complete dont have the same meaning in this situation to you. I think you got shafted by the gw because there is a certain distance you have to be from bait. Now if you were hunting on a field next to a fence and the neighbor had bait in his field that would get you in trouble. If that were the case then why is it completely legal for me to hunt on the borders of a refuge where they intentionally bait ducks for management purposes? Not to mention im in the flight path of the ducks as they are headed to the flooded cornfield on the refuge. Answer that one. Ive talked to many gw's about the topic and if you know what your talking about you will be just fine. If they still ticket you and you go to court, fight it because you will win everytime. Just saying

Okay, the statement about having to hunt over the bait is not inaccurate, it's incomplete. You don't have to be hunting over the bait. If you put yourself along the flight path you can still be ticketed for baiting. Just because your refuge situation is okay doesn't mean it extrapolates to all. Tell you what, dump a truck load of corn on the edge of a field, then shoot ducks heading into the field from the other side and call the game warden to come out and show him how clever you are....
As for the removal it is nearly impossible to get every piece of grain picked up. If an area was baited all they need to do is find ONE piece of evidence that it is still baited and you can be cited. Good luck getting every last piece up. You ever see corn when it is deposited over soft mud and vegetation? It will be there for a long time. If they think you are the one who placed the bait I can guarantee they will work until they find some.
