"To the hunt, to the hunter, to
the hunted; to past hunts, to future hunts."
Welcome to GetDucks.com's Media Gallery, a celebration of great hunts and tribute to the hunting tradition. Most images presented were captured by GetDucks.com staff and clients.
Sure, for the sporting traveler, it's duck season somewhere 365 days per year. But fond memories of duck hunting persist in the hearts of duck hunters almost constantly. We strive to provide maximum shooting opportunity for waterfowl and various game bird species worldwide, but memorable hunts - especially the often touted hunts-of-a-lifetime - are characterized by far more than the mere matriculation of dead fowl. The hunting experience in its fullest and richest context - the people, the food and atmosphere, the sights, sounds, geographical and cultural cues, best shots and infamous misses - is highly relevant.
We welcome client photos and will be glad to add them to our galleries. Please submit your ideas, comments and photos to email@example.com.

Uruguay, along with Argentina, is unquestionably the world's foremost destination to perdiz hunt. Perdiz, which literally translates to "partridge", are upland game birds slightly larger than quail that hold very well for pointing dogs. The sport of Uruguay perdiz hunt began as soon as the first European immigrants, primarily of Castilian and Italian origin, recognized that perdiz not only put their double guns and bird dogs to good use, but that its delectable white breast meat is second to none as table fare.
During a typical Uruguay perdiz hunt, a couple hunters and guide will flush 30-50 perdiz during a leisurely-paced hunt. Stylish, European-bred setters or English pointers hold perdiz with staunch, picture-perfect points every time, moving only as needed to pin perdiz. Perdiz sometimes run but usually not far. Eventually, they will sit tight to the point and provide a walk in for close-range shots. Open-choked 12-gauge and 20-bore upland guns are perfect.
Uruguay's predominate land cover-type is pampas, from the Guarani Indian word for level plain, and is characterized as rich, short-grass. Habitat, climate and land use patterns in Uruguay remain absolutely perfect for perdiz, whose closest nearby kin is the ostrich-like rhea. During a Uruguay perdiz hunt, birds flush from grass 3-4 inches high, up to maybe about 10 inches high. Sometimes from right under your feet! An absence of brush makes for easy shooting. An absence of snakes, cacti, or other unfortunate elements is a bonus. Sometimes only one perdiz flushes, but two-bird rises are common. Productive fields, superior pointing dogs, and good guides characterize our Uruguay perdiz hunts and usually result in brief, 2-3 hour hunts despite generous, 10-bird limits.
In addition to the inherently high-density of perdiz in Uruguay, the increased popularity of Uruguay perdiz hunting is attributable to it pairing naturally with duck hunting or dove hunting during a single day. High-volume Uruguay duck hunts and Uruguay dove hunts compliment perdiz hunting well.

In 1961 I was treated to my first ducks by some older guys I worked with at my first job while in school. Sitting alone on an un-named point on the Tennessee River with a borrowed "Duck Gun" hunting over a dozen Sears Paper Mache Decoys one December was the start of over fifty years of chasing waterfowl. Cold and green to this I watched and waited then finally fell asleep as the cold winter sun climbed the sky. Not sure what awakened me but my decoys numbered 7 instead of the six the guys had left me with. I stood up and a greenead exploded going away like many of the quail I had hunted for years and I folded him with my first shot.
Not waiting for a boat to arrive, I waded well over the top of my rubber boots to retrieve my first duck. Smoothing the feathers and marveling at the beauty of this creature, rightthen and there I wanted him mounted - and one of every one there was. Little did I know there were more than just a few and as my education into waterfowl biology grew, so did the species quest. I mowed several yards to make the $10 dollars for my first taxidermy bill.
Moving my meager collection to Memphis, Tennessee introduced me to several things. First, the Mississippi River was at my back door and lot of ducks funneled down this corridor. Second, Arkansas was just a short drive away and I soon began plying the vast expanse of the Prairie there. My biggest break, however, came when a girl next door to my apartment suggested I meet her uncle-in-law to be, Dr. William F. "Chubby" Andrews.
I looked up his address after hearing he had a collection of gamebirds and waterfowl and drove to midtown and knocked on his door. After a rather awkward introduction from me he kindly invited me into his home and introduced me to his family. This was the beginning of a long and wonderful relationship with this fine gentleman that lasted for almost 30 years. Hunting hallowed ground during the heyday of the point system at Beaver Dam and green timber at some of his places in Arkansas made for such fine memories and great times. Teaching me taxidermy in his basement helped me get started. I soon wanted to collect some of the specimens he had sent me on my first trip to Alaska.
My collection grew, the miles piled up with my travels and new horizons lay ahead of me in Argentina, Mexico, Iceland and New Zealand. Now, numbering some 850 plus birds I still haven't quit looking around the corner for something new. Beyond species are experiences, friends and a life enjoyed. Turkey hunting also became a passion and carried me more miles and more places. But, all this wouldn't be possible without a very understanding wife like Gail and the support of my two sons, Patrick and Stephen. I've been lucky and I've been blessed and all this hit home hard last January 16 when I suffered a heart attack in a duck pit. By shear divine intervention and luck I am still here today doing what I love best, second only to my family.
