Default Sportsman Guide to Wild Duck

In the counterfeit duck thread I mentioned a booklet I picked up in our antique travels this weekend

its entitled "Sportsman's Guide to Wild Duck" by the Wildlife Management Institute of Washington DC - this copy is marked as "distributed through the courtesy of the Pennsylvania Game Commission", dated 1946 - is a foreword by Col. H. P. Sheldon and articles about the most recent studies on flyways and migration

the booklet is illustrated by Fred Everett- a fellow Southern Tier NY'er ( I always like his work in classic upland bird books) -

here are some samples of his work in the book

Those are great prints of waterfowl. I particularly like the pintails, as they claim they are in our most eastern flyway, but in may years of duck hunting I have never even seen one. If I ever shoot one Scottie will get some business!!

NFS I suspect?

I am a big fan of Fred Everett's art and writing.

Not only was he a great illustrator, he also wrote "Fun With Game Birds" and "Fun With Trout" and had planned to finish "Fun With Bird Dogs" but passed away before that could happen.

Wonder where the unfinished bird dog manuscript went?

I had a number of primarily waterfowl-based hunting books that I brought to Ernie's NE SxS but never got to put the out on the table due to space constrictions. Most of them are classic vintage books (Van Campen Heilner; Kortwright; Bruette, etc.). I will be posting them for sale in the coming weeks. Thanks, Kevin
