This book is an extremely interesting book that isn't so much of a guide as a fun book that still teaches you about duck hunting, in this book the author devotes a chapter each to geese, dabbling ducks, and diving ducks, he also devotes chapters to dogs, guns, duck camp, gear, extras, old fashioned, hunting, and mistakes, also included is some information on crow, snipe, and rail hunting, the author also introduces some humor in his book in a style that recalls Patrick Mcmanus, he explains the importance of proper calling, dogs, decoy setup, children ( which is the sports future), crow and othe confidence decoys, in short this book is great for the novice learning to hunt and the expert looking for a few new tricks, thanks for reading, and happy hunting!
