Duck Numbers – Duck Hunting – Argentina

by Douglas Larsen If you have been lucky, you have been in Argentina recently, hunting ducks, or maybe shooting doves, or perdiz and pigeons. I hope so. I have not made my way to Argentina (yet) this summer, and I’m running out of time. If you have been away, perhaps you have not heard the …

There are More Ducks On That Side – Duck Hunting

by Douglas Larsen It’s the oldest joke in waterfowl hunting. An old fellow looks up at a “V” shaped formation of ducks migrating across the sky.

Ducking down in Argentina – The Field Magazine

Jonathan Young loves the people, the food, the humour… but, most of all, he loves the sport. Tomas, our designated guide, climbed aboard and within 20 minutes we’d arrived at our flight pond. Pond? It was more a mini lake. How would we manage to pull in the birds when they had such an acreage …
