    Peach tree in the front, waterhole with wood duck box, food plot, and prescribed fire in a longleaf pine stand. The only thing missing is a deer!

    Bonus photo: there is a hen in the duck box.

    cutman, what are you using in the nesting box for bedding ? I have a small pond that woodies frequent and I'm thinking of putting up a couple boxes for them. Thanks !

    Cedar shavings. You can get them at Tractor Supply for cheap.

    Thanks, my nesting box is on the way. Do you put a coon guard on yours ? I read somewhere that you can make one out of metal flashing so I'll probably go that route since the commercial ones are almost as costly as the box. Thanks !

    Yes, predator guards are essential. If you aren’t going to put a guard up, don’t put a box up.

    Looks like a fine spot to kill a gobbler

    Great couple of pics Cutman! Doesn't get much better than the combination of all that going on. I've never thought to put a wood duck box on a water hole.

    That's my thinking too...
