The old adage is true: "If it looks like a duck and sounds like a duck, it must be a duck."

Most folks know exactly what a duck looks like and sounds like. But when it comes to duck hunting, the images aren't so familiar.

Overview

The old adage is true: "If it looks like a duck and sounds like a duck, it must be a duck."

Most folks know exactly what a duck looks like and sounds like. But when it comes to duck hunting, the images aren't so familiar.

That was the reason behind the book, "The Season, A Photographic Look at the Sport of Duck Hunting." "The Season" is 160 than 300 color photographs illustrating a duck season in a way not ordinarily seen.

"This isn't your ordinary duck hunting picture book," said author and photographer Steve Bowman. "Duck hunting and particularly the birds we hunt lend themselves well to beautiful photos.

"We spent an entire season doing nothing but taking photographs of the hunters, the ducks, the retrievers and, most importantly, the variety of flooded timber, fields and swamps where duck hunting takes place.

"We wanted to show everyone what a season really looked like to this throng of passionate hunters who love to spend a day standing in ice-cold water, bracing against bitter wind. We wanted to explain what makes them tick and in the process show every part of what makes duck season so compelling."

To do that photographers Mark Stallings and Steve Bowman took more than 7,000 images and cataloged the best into 11 sections like "The Hunters," "The Quarry," "The Playground," "The Retrievers," and "The Culture." Printed on 100, "The Season" is the perfect coffee table book for hunting camp or living room.

The photos are tied together with lively writing that is itself worthy of a book.
