At the Bucksnag, we have a practice where we maintain rest ponds for the ducks and geese. In addition to that, we do no hunt in the afternoons. This seems to manage the hunting pressure sufficiently to keep more ducks and geese in the area. We call these rest ponds “The Benches” because they are actually tiered rice fields that resemble a set of steps or benches.
Except for the close of the first and second split.
Then we hunt “The Benches”. Everyone wants to be on that hunt!
