Steve Biggers of Rocky Creek Retrievers runs the best blue-winged teal hunts in Texas, maybe even on earth. But it doesn’t happen by accident. Far from it. Biggers explains professional retriever training and duck guiding, often using baseball concepts to effectively get his points across home plate. Straightforward and deliberate, his approach to both are similar – he wants to produce the best potential results and to maximize customers’ enjoyment. How’d Biggers get started down the path of become Texas’s best and who were his earliest influences? What makes this region a funnel for blue-winged teal migrating through Central and Mississippi flyways? If he “doesn’t buy caps and t-shirts,” what does he instead buy? How does he manage water, and how does he hold blue-winged teal for the entire hunting season in the absence of any nearby state or federal refuges? Like a hard line drive over centerfield fence, Biggers knocks this episode clear out of the park.
