I watched a duck hunting show several weeks ago that was in flooded timber in Arkansas. They described how they flooded several hundred acres here and there and that did not hurt the trees if left for only several months then drained away. It got me to wonderin what happens to all the squirels and such that most likely inhabit all the trees that get flooded in those areas. Anybody know anything about this process? Thanks--tr

Good question, but I don't think the duck hunters care.
Keep it coming...

I just saw this and thought I would add what I know about Mr. Bushy Tail and water. We have a bit of water and swamp here abouts. The best squirrel hunting is to be had in swamps. It is also where you find the biggest squirrels. But, squirrels do not float long when shot, as a matter of fact, as soon as the fur gets wet, they sink like a rock (no fat). Most time you try to hunt near the ridges that are left with the ridge top above water. You float and pole along. Let the squirrels run to the ridge trees and then shoot them, so they drop on the ground.

AR grows a lot of rice. When you drive through the countryside you see low dikes made of dirt (18- 24 inches high) around big tracks of land that has been leveled, using a GPS on a tractor or big belly dump. I understand that the farmers pump water into the interior until the water is high enough to plant. You see these fields even going up hills, in steps. This would work for ducks pretty well. You have a food source, near flooded trees for protection.

Now if you had a corn field next to the flooded trees, squirrels would be everywhere.
