Duck Lore S02 E03 Aug 2, 2022
Ducks, Sun, and Wind
It’s no secret that Missouri is one of the best states for shooting mallards. Ducks that nest in both the Mississippi and Central Flyways funnel through here on their way to the Arkansas Delta, and the habitat is great for greenheads. In this episode, Sean Weaver is joined by Logan Williamson, First Lite’s Waterfowl Category Manager. It’s cold, late-season, and the goal is simple: big flocks of mallards, greenwing teal, and wigeon on the big water.
