    So I hunt a small pond in Quincy IL. We have had little to no luck in the last few years. The pond is about 2 to 3 acers and is only a half mile from the mississippi flyway. In the last few years the water has been clear and mallards didnt want to land there. This year after the flood the pond is muddy and sandy. Could this area produce more action this year. I mean there are not any shortage of ducks there is just getting them to come in. Any help would be great.

    i would look for a better spot if you havent shot a duck in this pond in a few years.

      So if the bird population is high in your area--think about what can improve your chances for attracting waterfowl to the three acre pond---decoys--calls come to mind.Also consider your blind and camo choices; this will have great affect on wary birds.Lastly the time of season and hunting pressure will affect activity on the pond as well.Don't give up on the pond.

        Try kicking up a little mud when you set up.The flybys may swing in thinkin birds are feeding in your pond.good luck.
