I finally got the chance to hunt ducks for the first time a few years ago. I don’t know what took me so long, but I can recommend giving it a try, as long as you’re prepared for the high probability of developing a lifelong obsession and serious drain on your cash reserves.

Ducks Unlimited has been rolling out a series of beautifully produced films to keep you in the wingshooting state of mind. Even if you’ve never taken aim and a bird, it’s worth a look . . .

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – May 1, 2019 – Ducks Unlimited has released the latest film in its online series. In “Paul’s Pond”, Paul and Suzanne Sullivan of Washington State share their commitment to Ducks Unlimited and waterfowl conservation.

Paul has spent most of his life hunting waterfowl. He owns and operates Burbank Guide Service in the Columbia River basin of Washington State. “Nothing attracted me like ducks and geese did,” he said. “I’ve made it into not only my passion but my business.”

Guiding hunters since 1977, the Sullivan’s developed a long relationship with Ducks Unlimited. Suzanne is the incoming Washington State DU chairperson, taking over that duty in June.

She explains her husband Paul’s commitment to conserving waterfowl resources in the film.

“Everything he does has to be compatible for wildlife. Everything he does has to be a conservation effort,” she said.

Ducks Unlimited has played a large role in our family,” said Paul. “It’s part of who we are and who we have been for many, many years.”

It’s important to Paul that his family continue the legacy he began long ago.

“Our future is in our kids and our grand kids,” he said. “For us to carry on with this tradition of hunting and the great outdoors, we have to introduce them to the things we enjoy and believe in.”

    If you’ve never been duck hunting, don’t go! You will begin spending your money on shotguns, waders, boats, decoys, calls and other expensive things that you’ll only use a few times a year. You will also begin to burn vacation time and go out of town without your wife. Which will really pissed her off. Really. Trust me. You will also begin getting up 03 hundred hours. Which will cause you to question your own sanity. Until those first greenheads cup up over the decoys. Then it’s to he’ll with the bride, boss and the money. Now I remember why I’m here.

    Written as I sit here watching the killing channels wearing a Columbia T-shirt with a graphic of a mallard with a shotgun pattern superimposed on him. Narrative says, “Boom Valley Welcoming Committee.” Bought it years ago at the Mossey Oak store in Mississippi, you guessed it, on a duck hunting trip.

    Not duck or goose hunting is very easy for me.
    The best recipe I found goes something like this.
    Put the duck in a pot of boiling water along with a brick.
    After 30 minutes, take the duck out and throw it away, then eat the brick.

      Tom,

      How are you doing?

      A few months back you were having some health issues. What’s happening?

      Is that a taste thing? Guy out with me told me that same joke when I bagged a coot. Turns out he was right on that, no bird should ever taste like coot. I’ll split your duck/brick boil with ya if you’re only in it for the brick.

    Tom, let me tell of other recipe. Make a baking dish of wild rice. Set aside. Brown duck breast in butter, fresh garlic cloves, etc. Transfer to wild rice. Make gravy with mushrooms. Pour over and bake. DON’T OVER COOK! Medium well. Salad, potatoes, brrad, vegetables. Eat. My family had reservations. Until they say down to dinner. There were no leftovers..

      Tom, I also have lots of recipes for quail, dove, vinison, wild turkey (put him in a smoker with a pork ham on the top rack to keep it basted.) Great! Glad to share them. Let me know if you’re interested. I mostly eat wild game and fish. Mostly what I do. Be on a boat on the Gulf of Mexico tomorrow. Seas allowing.
