Item description for A Ducks Unlimited Guide to Hunting Diving & Sea Ducks by Gary Kramer...
Hunting diving ducks (and sea ducks) is considered by many to be the most challenging form of waterfowling. In most cases, duck hunters must brave big rough water and freezing temperatures in pursuit of hardy, fast-flying birds that can elude even the best wingshooters. Yet the sport continues to draw legions of avid waterfowlers anxious to test their mettle against the elements and the birds.
This is the first how-to guide devoted exclusively to hunting diving ducks such as canvasbacks, redheads, and greater and lesser scaup, and sea ducks such as bufflehead, scoters, and eider. Like its companion volume, A Ducks Unlimited Guide to Hunting Dabblers, this new book will prove an invaluable resource for both novice and veteran waterfowlers. No other book has ever offered as much complete and in-depth information on how to hunt these big-water ducks, including:
* Methods for hunting divers over decoys in rivers, big lakes, reservoirs, and ocean coastal areas.
* Tactics for pass-shooting and hunting in layout boats and shore blinds.
* Boats and other specialized equipment needed to pursue diving ducks.
* Tactics for hunting early and late in the season.
* How to scout and locate the best hunting spots.
* And much, much more.

Great how to, where to book. Nov 4, 2003
I've never hunted diving ducks or sea ducks, per se, except for the incidental ones I shot while targeting puddle ducks. I just didn't know enough about where to go and how to target bluebills, canvasbacks, redheads, eiders, you name it. So this book was a godsend to me. I bought another book that touched on the subject last year. But this book has all the details you need to get out there and do it. I can't to start hunting these big-water ducks next season.
