Info

A small hen Green-winged Teal sits in the duck blind after being shot and retrieved by the dogs. Despite the wound to the skull this duck is still alive. Many birds die the instant they are shot, but some need to be killed after being retrieved. This sport can be brutal, however all the birds that were harvested on this trip will be consumed by the hunters and their families. Duck hunters donate millions of dollars every year to the protection of the species. Strict hunting laws regulate the amount of birds hunters can legally kill.
