DUCK BOATS: BLINDS: DECOYS

The Rod and Gun Editor of the New York Times offers practical advice for tyro as well as expert not only on waterfowling but also on the making and using of decoys and the building of blinds and choice of boats, that will be of interest to the individual as well as group and club shooters. Compiled from over 25 years of avid following of wild-fowl hunting, his sporting experiences and information point up the variety of sport, of method and practices and indicate the challenge for all nimrods. From Canada to Florida he checks the rigs, explains the reasons for his favorite procedures and how they can be adapted to different types of shoots. He gives careful directions on decoy making and describes the best types of blinds (and clothing), and boats, guns and dogs and intersperses all with personal adventures. A good regional addition to the sportsman's library both for application and enjoyment.
