Sitting here at work taking a FEMA online course dreaming of Saturday morning. I am hunting north of Greenville and last year I was slammed with ducks. This year, not so much. I think it has something to do with the pond level. Last year it was about 75 percent full. This year 110 percent. I believe that the vegetation is now to low, or the water level is to high. Anybody have any thoughts on why I would not see as many ducks.

Also I am planting a good plot this year

Probably a combination of factors. As you know there are lots of options for dux right now with water being everywhere, especially where you are. Also, with your pond being 75% last year I'm guessing more of it was shallow. Could be wrong there, but in the drought I had a place that was usually too deep for anything but divers. With the combination of there being few options and the water level being just right on the majority of the pond it was on fire. Last thing, there was a decent push at the very end of the split, but the best is yet to come. Hopefully they'll find ya and more are on the way.

This pond is about 4 acres when full, maybe bigger. It has a lot of shallow even when the pond is low. The problem I think I am having is when the pond was low the area that was dry didn't develop any vegetation so now that area which is the low area (2-3ft) has very minimal vegetation. this all occurred due to the rain last spring and couldn't get my food plot out. This year I am going to pump out some of the pond for the food plot
