Former biologist and veteran duck hunter Gary Kramer has written the first comprehensive guide to hunting big water ducks. Whether you’ve dreamed of targeting bluebills and canvasbacks on small or big water or eiders and scoters along the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, this exciting new book invites you to take the plunge. Discover what a small but dedicated group of hunters has known for years. Hunting divers and sea ducks is a sport unlike any other - offering uncrowded hunting areas, challenging shooting and the chance to test your mettle against the elements.
Included are in-depth tactics - with detailed photos and diagrams - for pursuing these hardy fast-flying birds over decoys in lakes and reservoirs, coastal bays and estuaries, rivers and marshes. A dozen guides and veteran hunters offer tips on everything from anchoring layout boats to preparing sea ducks for the table. Plus, a chapter on the top 10 diver and sea duck destinations feature information (including telephone numbers/web sites of guides/outfitters) on the best hunting from the Down East Coast of Maine to Mexico’s Laguna Madre.
