How does pressure affect duck hunting success? Or does it? Is it just the shooting, or do other related disturbance factors affect hunting success? How do ducks respond to hunting pressure? And what about busting out refuges — or changing sanctuary areas up to ensure ducks fly over our decoys instead? Dr. Bradley Cohen is back to explain the complex relationship between hunters, hunting pressure and waterfowl behavior, offering research-based suggestions for how we can mitigate disturbing “our ducks,” possibly increasing number of ducks hanging from our straps. Fascinating topic you’ll definitely want to hear!
