Ducks on Ice: Hunting the Great Salt Lake
Why would I fly a couple thousand miles and then spend two long days with my back quite literally on ice? To kill a few ducks, naturally. As a lifetime resident of the mid-Atlantic region, I jumped at the chance to join some of the fine folks from Avery Outdoors for an airboat-led waterfowl hunt on Utah's Great Salt Lake and the surrounding waterways. And so I joined Avery Pro Staffers Chad Yamane and Travis Madden in putting the hurt on the Beehive State's migratory bird population. You can get a closer look at the trip with the photos I've embedded above.
