Public Land Pursuit

By Darren Digby “Yamaha783″ The idea of public hunting land, for many hunters, is both a windfall and a thorn in the side. Sure it’s a place to go for a few birds, but all too often a few birds in the bag come at the cost of a huge headache from overcrowded acreage. After [...]

Natural Born Hunters

By PJ Maguire Some dogs have it, and some dogs don’t. Usually it is instincts that separate the great gundogs from the rest. Selecting a gundog from good lineage is typically the best way to ensure that your pup will hunt. I have found that there are some exceptions to this rule, good and bad. [...]

Crazy For Duck Bands

By PJ Maguire Every year the U.S. Fish and Wildlife service and agencies ran by the states, place leg bands on a variety of birds across the country. Migratory birds, like ducks, geese, and most recently doves are some of the most commonly banded birds. Harvesting a bird sporting a leg band is a special [...]

All I Want for Christmas is a Duck

By Chris Hustad Christmas season has come and gone yet again, with plenty of memories to crown the year. By now you’ve more than likely returned some of your gifts; the pants that were too short, the sleeves on that sweater were too long, that pair of boots one size too small. All too often [...]

Dead End Slough

By Chris Hustad When I look back at the hunting and fishing memories throughout the years, I can really tell how much it influenced the blueprint of my life. I can remember my first walleye, largemouth bass, pheasant, and duck to name a few like it was just yesterday. But more than just the creature [...]

Duck Hunting with Kids

By John Potts (aka Crewchief 252) I have been duck hunting seriously for going on 40 years now, but in the last 3 years things have really changed. I now have a 13-yr old son who loves to go, and when you go from hunter to mentor your priorities change as well. Something right away [...]

Urban Hunting

By PJ Maguire It should come as no surprise that the biggest wildlife refuge in Minnesota is the Twin Cities. I would be willing to bet that there are more trophy bucks, Canada geese and mallard ducks in the city limits of the Metro than there are in out-state Minnesota. Of course this is just [...]

Hunting Teal in Nebraska

By PJ Maguire Ever since I heard of the early teal seasons held by states south of Minnesota and North Dakota, I have wanted to participate in one of these hunts. When I first started hunting with my friend J.D. from Omaha, he told me tales of hunting these little ducks in September. Finally, this [...]

The Memories Through a Duck Band

By PJ Maguire I met Dave Easton in the fall of 2000 at the Phi Delta Theta fraternity house on the University of North Dakota campus in Grand Forks. Dave had a burning passion to pursue game in the outdoors and a Jeep. I had three-dozen mallard floaters and knowledge of waterfowl passed down from [...]
