Description

Water fowling - the sport of hunting ducks and geese - is alive and quite well in North America, thanks in large part to a resurgence of waterfowl numbers - which, in turn, can be traced to conservation groups such as Ducks Unlimited and Delta Waterfowl, Inc., as well as to sportsmen who impose limits on themselves far stricter than those issued by the law. To those who participate in the sport, hunting for waterfowl is an all-consuming passion, an annual tradition looked forward to all year. Assembling the gear, fixing the decoys, working with the Labs and Chesapeakes, caring for the firearms, fixing the blinds or duck boats, and always looking for yet more hotspots to hunt, water fowlers are a breed unto themselves. In this handbook you will read how to become adept at all aspects of duck and goose hunting - how to set the decoys in various conditions; how to call for different species of ducks and geese at different times of year; and how to get out there on the marsh or grain field and collect birds. In these pages, too, the author seeks to impart an understanding of the mystique, the tradition, and the lure of water fowling.show more
