    Being from a nearby state, you may like "Waterfowl of Illinois" by Stephen Havera from the Illinois Natural History Survey.
    This book covers feeding habits, old duck clubs, current duck clubs etc.
    Well worth the money, in my opinion (lots of pages and photo's, too).

    A new book that was mentioned here on the main forum and on the Missouri Forum is "Waterfowl Hunting and Wetland Conservation in Missouri".

    I mentioned that I wanted this book for Christmas to my wife and she ordered it (from the Mo. Conservation Dept., I think) and when it arrived at the house, she actually let me take a look to insure it was indeed what I wanted. From what I saw, that book will be one heck of a fine read once I get to unwrap it Christmas morning....lots of cool, old photo's, history of old duck clubs, etc.

    Thats "Travels and Traditions Of Waterfowl" by Hochbaum.
    He also wrote "The Canvasback On A Prairie Marsh", another good book.

    Guys,

    I really appreciate all of the input you've given so far. It looks like I'll be building my waterfowl library with some really good books.

    I had hunted ducks and geese early on in my late teens and early 20's, then I kind of got away from it. I chased Whitetail deer for about the last 30 years or so. A very tragic series of events over the last year has pushed me in another direction this year though. Blessed to be able to go back and hunt the spot where I killed my first Greenhead all those years ago.

    Thanks again !

    Fred
