    "Misty Mornings and Moonless Nights" by Norman Strung, as that was the book that started me collecting with about 350 titles on the shelf now. That's also the book that got me to flag geese before Randy Bartz(Flagman) and others sold flags commercially.

    Many are signed by the authors. I also have some books that are over 100 years old, one that is over 140 years old, some that deal with conservation, others with decoys of a particular region, books on the carvers, and books on carving decoys. Some belonged to some of the greats of conservation. I have three that belonged to Art Hawkins, another that is signed by the editors of Flyways. It has been a fun activity and it's nice to just go to the bookshelf and pull a book to read and settle in to the easy chair instead of sitting in front of the computer.

    I have a modest library of hunting/shooting/carving books, 94 of which are waterfowl hunting related.
    My favorite authors are George Reiger (3 titles), MD Johnson, Gordon MacQuarrie, and Norman Strung.
    Gene Hill is worth the read, but it's not specifically waterfowl related.

    For my favorite authors I'd say Nash Buckingham, Gordon MacQuarrie, and Robert Ruark.

    Since no one mentioned it yet, I'll add my favorite book. "Shotgunning in the Lowlands" by Ray Holland

    And the Gene Hill story about the guide(Martin) and the goose is probably my favorite story. Been there, felt that.

    Mac's books are awesome too.

    Wax and Wane, originally published in Sports Afield is my must read every opening morning before heading out. Believe it was written by Steve Mulak. Gene Hill is my all-time favourite writer. Mike Gaddis is as close as you can get to Hill nowadays.
