Premier episode of Life's Short GetDucks web series begins Down Under

Life’s Short GetDucks: Australia

The long-awaited premier of the forthcoming series begins Down Under. Australia is as familiar as duck hunting in the southern US, with mallard-like Pacific Black Ducks responding to soft calls and filtering into flooded timber, but is as otherworldly as kangaroos bounding through ancient red gum swamps, the unique pink-eared duck, and hamburgers topped with pineapple and beetroot. Welcome to Australia, mate! Please join Ramsey Russell as we explore 6 continents during an epic waterfowling odyssey, chronicling worldwide duck hunting, putting viewers into duck blind locations they’d never imagined, for some species they’ve only dreamed. #lifesshortgetducks #getducks #itsduckseasonsomewhere #australiaduckhunting #huntingisconservation #ramseyrussellgetducks #waterfowloftheworld #ramseyrussell #realduckhunting
