The state`s duck season opens this weekend and farmers across the Delta are flooding their fields with the hope of attracting ducks. Hunters pay farmers for access to their fields, making duck season something of a second cash crop for growers. Dow Brantley emptied millions of gallons of water into his fields this week near England. Brantley says the income from hunters has helped farmers get through tough economic times. Brantley`s family has farmed in the area since 1946, but only started flooding to attract duck hunters three years ago. The Brantley farm is just 18 miles from Stuttgart, the self-proclaimed "Rice and Duck Capital of the World." Duck hunting brings in one million dollars a day to the region during hunting season.
