File this one under “How One Sac Valley Duck Hunter’s Idea Changed the Duck Hunting World. Forever.” While pass shooting ducks with family members back in the real good ol’ days while he was only a child, Andy Anderson likely never dreamed that his idea for attracting ducks in adult life – and that remained his closely guarded secret weapon for as long as possible – would hit the waterfowl hunting world like a giant meteor. But boy did it! Meeting at a farm headquarters just a few miles from where he’s hunted his entire life, Anderson shows Ramsey Russell the first-ever mechanized spinning wing decoy prototype over which many, many duck died, describing how he came up with the idea and events that soon ensued at fevered pitch. This Duck Season Somewhere podcast episode is a great story about the most effective waterfowl decoy concept ever devised (and there’s a reason “goalposts” remain the most popular SWD throughout California’s Sacramento Valley all these decades later). It’s also a past-times glimpse into true California duck hunting culture.
