Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 and what sustains one’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

• “0 Bait: The Use of Corn” by Harry M. Walsh

• “Duck Talk” by Jim Rikhoff

• and dozens of others.

The Duck Hunter’s Book is great reading, and it just might improve your skills too.
