As trips began to land on the schedule for the 2015-2016 hunting season, I was presented with an interesting opportunity: the chance to hunt each of North America's four major flyways. What began with a trip to Saskatchewan in September recently came to a close, as I scratched my fourth and final stop, the Mississippi Flyway, off the list just before Christmas. I joined SPG Outdoors and Browning for a weekend of waterfowl hunting at Honey Brake, part of the 40,000 acre Louisiana Delta Plantation. Weather wasn't always in our favor, but we put a hurting on the ducks that were willing to cooperate. Check out the photos above for a closer look at the trip.
