    Wet in Arkansas Editor's Note: This is an article about a duck hunting accident with one of our community members. In 2010 we had 13 inches of rain in December. So when we arrived in Brinkley the first week of January we drove into Dagmar to check the water level. Water was already over most...

    by Blake Gipson It was Christmas morning and it was dang cold outside. What made this worse was the fact that I was lost. I better start this duck hunting games - the long morning walk story a couple hours before this. I got up as usual at 4am and gathered my gear in the dark at my house. I had...

    By: Bill Fontaine What is Dog Marsh Dog? "There is a part of the Louisiana marsh that is so deep, so muddy, so full of 'gators, and so full snakes that you send the dog to retrieve the birds and we call it a Dog marsh. A dog that retrieves in that hell hole is a Dog Marsh Dog." This...

  7. The Honey Hole
    By Tammy Sapp I'm not usually the kind of woman who hollers out to perfect strangers in public. But, my choices were continue lurking around a Memphis airport telephone booth or find out if the two women strolling by, one in a camouflage jacket, were my ride to Hunter's Paradise Lodge. "Hey...
  8. The Honey Hole
    As the orange sun began to set on the blue and gray North Dakota sky, I was truly amazed at what I was experiencing. Standing next to our truck, I watched in utter disbelief as hundreds upon hundreds of ducks, (pintails, mallards, wigeon) and other species starting descending into the...

    By PJ Maguire The noon opener of the Minnesota duck season was the hardest thing for me to wait for when I was young. Typically this would be the first time I hunted waterfowl for the year. Now-a-days I am accustomed to hunting in the early goose seasons that are provided in Minnesota and other...

    by Bernie Eckert Editor Note: This essay was submitted to us by a high school teacher for one of her students. Have you ever had one of those days when everything goes wrong? Well, trust me, you haven't had a bad day until you go duck hunting and everything goes wrong. Back in the day, my...
  11. The Honey Hole
    By Chris Hustad It was right around first light when I ventured outside of our sleeping quarters at J. Clark Salyer National Refuge Headquarters near Upham, ND last week (in early September). I noticed the picnic table was still full of grills, empty plates of goose, and some empty beer cans...

    By Tony "Duckdiesel" Beal The Early Bird Gets the Worm, not so... As a life-long learner, I embrace what life has to offer and love to put my thinking into action. Generally speaking in terms of great sea duck hunting in Maine and elsewhere, one must be set up and ready before the first...
  13. The Honey Hole
    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 all, it's a free...

    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...

    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...
  16. The Honey Hole
    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...
  17. The Honey Hole
    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...
  18. The Honey Hole
    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 that has...
  19. The Honey Hole
    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...
  20. The Honey Hole
    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...
