As I mentioned in several blog posts this week, I travelled to Rhode Island on Sunday for two days of sea duck hunting with Captain Brian Rhodes of The Swampers guide service. I’ve travelled to Manitoba twice and all over the South and Midwest to hunt ducks and geese, but despite growing up in New Hampshire and living for the past 12-plus years in New York City, I’d never taken advantage of the awesome sea duck hunting off the coast of the Northeast. Several friends and colleagues have hunted sea ducks from Maine to Massachusetts in the past few years, and all of them have raved about the experience. I was psyched to check out the Rhode Island scene, to say the least. Editors
