Building Duck Houses for Conservation
If you have been looking to get more birds onto your land, or simply want to help ducks find better habitat, then building a duck house is a great activity to partake in. Building a duck house is not only fun, but it can be a great conservation tool that will bring more birds into your hunting ground and keep them there.
Taking the time to build a duck house on your property or hunting ground will protect ducks from predators, give them a safe place to hatch ducklings and provide shelter. You can find a good informative guide on how to build your bow, how to protect the ducks from predators, and where you should place your box right here.
Even if you are not a duck hunter, building duck houses is a fantastic conservation activity that improves habitat and duck survival. With more and more habitat destruction happening each year, these animals need all the help they can get. If nothing else, ducks are nice to watch for many people and their presence will make for some awesome wildlife observation. Duck house projects are great for community relations, service projects and for a new hobby.
The materials needed to build a duck house are fairly inexpensive and are available at any hardware store, or quite possibly, lying around your home. If you take a few hours out of your weekend to build a few houses, you’ll be surprised at how it can improve the hunting come fall.
Try out your woodworking skills on a duck house project and you may just have more shooting than ever when you hit the marsh and waters this fall.
