Smartweed, Sandhills, and Ducks with Janis Putelis

Hidden in the dunes of the Sandhills in Nebraska is an unexpected sight: thousands of waterfowl scattered across the meadows and sloughs. In this episode of Duck Lore, it’s mid-October, and Sean is joined by MeatEater’s own Janis Putelis. They are knocking on doors for private access, and hunting marshes full of smartweed for mallards, gadwall, wigeon, and even pintails.
