The Wildlife Management Team at Triangle Pond recently released nearly one thousand live mallard ducks on various properties of our waterfowl clients around North Carolina.
Birds were delivered and released across the state, from the western foothills all the way to the eastern Carolina coast.
Releasing live ducks is another tool property owners can use as part of an overall management plan to attract more waterfowl. These live decoys swim and call and live in the owner’s existing habitat, which in turn catches the eyes and ears of wild ducks for increased hunting or viewing opportunities. We strongly recommend releasing live ducks on newly constructed or newly obtained areas to start establishing a property as an annual stop on the wild duck’s migration south.
