GUNNING FOR SEA DUCKSby: George Howard Gillelna
Introduces readers to a relatively untouched arena of waterfowling—birds that provide fast, challenging shooting &, after it’s over, delectable eating. Photos, figures, maps; 6×9 inches, 139 pgs.
Plenty of waterfowl hunters are familiar with Canada geese and dabbling and diving ducks, but few know anything about sea ducks: oldsquaws, scoters, eiders, and the rare harlequin. This book introduces readers to a relatively untouched arena of waterfowling—birds that provide fast, challenging shooting and, after it’s over, delectable eating. The author, who was an experienced and well-traveled gunner and outdoors writer, includes details on the birds themselves, where they may be found, what kinds of shooting equipment to use, how to lay out decoys, and finally how to prepare the birds for delightful dining.
WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING:
“Convincing and crammed with facts [and with] an array of colorful people…this will stand as the bible of sea ducking for quite some time.” —Zack Taylor, author of Successful Waterfowling
