Delta Waterfowl’s Fall Issue Delivers Hunting Forecast, Adult-Mentoring Advice

The Fall Issue of Delta Waterfowl magazine provides a must-read story for every North American waterfowler: the 2021 Flight Forecast. Every species … every flyway … Delta Waterfowl biologists have you covered with what to expect above your decoys in the season ahead. Given the cancellation of the 2021 USFWS Breeding Waterfowl Population Survey, you won’t find this level of expert analysis anywhere else.

The best news of all? Populations of geese are up across the board. Don’t miss Delta’s reports on when, where and how to capitalize. And to further whet your goose appetite, be sure to check out, “Saskatchewan’s Hungry Honkers,” a thrilling tale from award-winning writer Brad Fenson.

Planning to mentor a new waterfowler this season? Delta staff writer Bill Miller explains why you should consider inviting an adult, plus how to go about it as a gift to conservation.

While we can’t promise anything written in the Fall Issue will rival the talent of author Gordon MacQuarrie (if you aren’t familiar, stop what you’re doing and Google him now) we can promise his fans will enjoy, “Shaming MacQuarrie.” Delta contributor Joe Shead had an opportunity to hunt bluebills where the legendary outdoor writer once stood, with a hilarious outcome.

In further celebrating ways to give back to the ducks, you’ll relish the feature, “A Waterfowler’s Conservation Checklist,” in which Anthony Hauck unveils his strategy for putting back more birds than you take every year.

The hunting-packed issue contains an essay by Ron Peach extolling his favorite ducks — green-winged teal — plus a relatable story by Nate Corley on hunting with a waterfowler of unattainable expertise, and a piece from Hauck on the incredible creek-jumping stealth of cocker spaniels.

As always, the Fall Issue carries a full slate of informative and entertaining columns such as Duck Dogs, Shotgunning, Strategies, Duckology and Waterfowl Chef to help you get the most from your waterfowl season.
