TO THE READERS OF MY BLOG: It is a rare occasion when I recommend something to my readers, but this is an exception, as this is a new magazine with its first premier issue coming out now, this July. I highly recommend it. See for yourself by going to


Love the ancient photos and amazing tales of great days when ducks & geese darkened the skies? Get a thrill out of using or collecting vintage decoys, shotguns and other gear?  How about learning some of the forgotten Old School ways, tricks and tips that can help you bag more birds NOW?

Then hello, friend! All these and MORE are here in a new magazine created just with you in mind.

Quarterly  TRADITIONS brings you those great people, places and things that make our duck & goose hunting way of life so rich and rewarding. TRADITIONS gives you a nice mix of old timey stories, legends and lore with the best of today’s Camo Life. But you won’t find plastic shotguns, thug culture, golf tournaments, barrel stickers or goofy celebrity worship here. Skillful storytelling with awesome photography, stunning layouts,  a choice of plans including VIP treatment… that’s TRADITIONS Magazine.  Lock down Issue #1 for yourself! Go to

TRADITIONS  brings you everything good in the life of the true Waterfowler. Family & friends, a love for the birds, and the habitat where they are found, and that hope we all have for handing down the ways we love to future ‘fowlers.

TRADITIONS will not waste your time with filler, politics, or baloney. . . . We are here to bring you the heart and spirit of duck and goose hunting yesterday and today with a TON of original content in every issue.

Oh yeah! –  I haven’t even mentioned The Duck Club — exclusive (and fun) perks ‘n’ goodies that come FREE  with top-tier packages.  You WILL want to be part of The Duck Club! More about that when you order TRADITIONS VIP or Premium.

Good huntin’!
