Know Your Ducks and Geese

We’re big fans of the artifacts of the sportsmen who came before us. The rods, guns, gear and books they used in the field are fascinating, and a root inspiration for a lot of what we do here at Ball and Buck.

An essential item for any sportsman of this pre-internet era, was the bird identification book. Recently we found a great example of one originally published in 1954, which sold for the grand sum of 50 cents. 

“Know Your Ducks and Geese: 32 Full Color Plates and Descriptive Material Identifying America's Ducks and Geese.”

No doubt this one did a little time in the field, and was (and still is) ideal for the North American sportsman. Here are few of the great images that comprise this excellent periodical.
