The Duck Hunter's Book: Classic Waterfowl Storiesby Lamar Underwood (Editor)
Anything can happen on a duck-hunting trip. A good marsh or bay is just an adventure waiting to unfold. It's part of what makes duck hunting the sport of dreams, tales, and paintings-what sustains the duck hunter's efforts to cope with the sport's considerable logistics of guns, gear, boats, and dogs. The duck hunter is part of a magnificent and ever-changing tapestry of land, water, and skies, alive with the stirrings of elemental nature.
This is a book about that tapestry. Included in this volume are some of the finest musings on duck hunting, by some of the sport's most beloved authors, including: .
"Wings and Water, Guns and Dogs" by Ed Zern . "This Mania Called Duck Hunting" by Ted Trueblood . "Portrait of a Sweet-Water Marsh" by Robert Elman . "Duck Blinds" by Charles F. Waterman . "What is a Duck Hunter?" by Charley Dickey . "North Again" by John Madson . "Have Ducks the Power of Scent?" by Ray P. Holland . "Canada and the Provinces" by Raymond R. Camp . "Ice, Ducks, and Good Strong Rye" by Martin Bovey . "The Susquehanna Flats" by Norris E. Pratt . "And Keep Your Powder Dry" by Colin Willcock . "Skyful of Bright Wings" by Russell Annabel . "Bait: The Use of Corn" by Harry M. Walsh . "Duck Talk" by Jim Rikhoff . and dozens of others
It's great reading, and it might improve your duck-hunting skills, too.
