How To Attract Ducks

Recommended Posts

Hi I have cleared a pond out that I shot when I was young about 10 years ago, it's about a mile away from a big lake but can't get any ducks there. I have been feeding it for about a month and nothing is taking the food! Any ideas?

Can they get in easily enough ? They should find it. I've shot a pond in middle of a wood that was hellish for them to get in and out but they did. Once try find yours thy will keep coming. Keep at it.

Thanks for all the help I will look at putting an island in! Will call duck bring in teal or just mallard?
