    Look, I don't believe it'll help, but it's a cheap experiment. Tell Benny I wish him well.

    You have a way to draw down the water to plant the whole thing?

    Yes, flashboard riser. Once the ducks thin out, it's getting drained.

    No.....it'll be completely drained.


    On that note, I'm sure we're gonna lose some of the oaks that are submerged. If I'm gonna replace them, what's my best bet? I'd like to plant some new ones that will A) survive being under water next duck season and B) grow as fast as possible. Yes, I know that no oaks grow "fast", but some certainly grow faster than others.

    Nuttall oak are supposed to be pretty fast growers and tolerate water well. I'm currently seeding out 150 from acorns I've gathered myself.

    Contact the ag extension agent for where the property is. Also, google "flood tolerant oaks," and see what you like.

    Typically flood tolerant and fast growing are mutually exclusive.

    Ducks like some acorns over others. Something to consider.

    This is true, one of the reason I am growing Nuttalls. Interesting study from east Texas.
