Hunting waterfowl is exciting! We have three sons and recently went to the Western New York Sport and Travel Expo and each of the wanted a duck call! Sounded like a good idea.

The days are getting longer and soon you will see geese setting up their nests. Geese will typically return to the same nesting area from year to year. There are a few times when these geese and their goslings will cross back and forth from field to nest and can delay traffic.
