Review

"Mr. Underwood's enthusiasm for the sport of duck hunting and some of the sport's beloved authors is apparent..."--American Field magazine

From the Back Cover

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.

"If you can't hunt, you might as well read about it during the off season." I enjoyed this book very much. It contains a multitude of short stories from a bygone era. This book brings together writings that are not any longer available in any other format.

Bought this as a gift for my father who was a duck hunter most of his life. He's too old now to freeze his toes in a duck blind and his knees just can't take long hikes across a farmers field so I hoped this might help fill the void. Well, he's not the most prolific reader but he loves this book. More than once now he's made sure he lets me know he really enjoys the stories. He's not one to effuse much so I'm thrilled he enjoys it so. Recommended for that hunter in your life.
