Passion drives the thing. Traveling to hunt is no longer for elitists. One of my favorite hunts last year was a Maine eider expedition. The guys in camp were regular Joes with guns from DU banquets, and it was their second trip – during a recession! So I talked to Ramsey Russell, a biologist and international man of duck-hunting mystery, who brokers hunts all over the planet. We came up with a list of reasonably priced must-do hunts in the Americas.
This list is merely a good start. Print out these pages, paste them on the fridge, circle a dream hunt or two and go tell your wife what you want for Christmas. You won’t have to twist her arm to go to Mexico. Whether it’s 37 species you seek or just great experiences, the only thing that happens if you wait, is you get older.

Our waterfowling itinerary included sea ducks, diving ducks, puddle ducks, Pacific black brant and Canada geese. In addition, we planned to hunt willow ptarmigan…We have hunted many states and countries and agreed that this hunt was among each of our top five favorites.

Trying to convince myself I’d rather be elsewhere was futile. I’d rather be mowing the lawn. No. I’d rather be at the office. Nope. I’d rather be painting the front porch. Not happening. Duck season ended months ago and little league baseball was underway. But even with rivulets of icy rainwater occasionally breaching a cinched collar and winding down my back, there was absolutely nowhere I’d rather have been than hunting snow geese adjacent to the mighty St. Lawrence River in Quebec.
