An Old Duck Hunter Recalls His Fowl Past

by Don E. Webster


Book Details


From a young boy shivering in the rain on his first hunt with his father, all the way to suffering the loss of lifelong hunting pals, Don E. Webster embraces almost 60 years of waterfowling. Penned with a style and flair that brings to mind outdoor legends such as Corey Ford, Robert Ruark, and Ed Zern, this collection of duck hunting memories brims with sly humor, salty wit, and poignant reflection. Bury Me In My Waders will charm and captivate you while tickling your funny bone at the same time. “Bury Me In My Waders” is a fun read, perfect for those precious moments when you want to forget your troubles and be reminded of your own waterfowl hunting adventures. Don E. Webster has a rare, special ability to spin yarns to which every waterfowl hunter can relate. If you haven’t been in the marsh lately, this book is a call you won’t be able to resist. —Frank Galusha Editor/Publisher MyOutdoorBuddy.com “Whether you have a developing passion or a longtime addiction to waterfowl hunting, you will enjoy reading Don E. Webster’s book, “Bury Me In My Waders.” Don has enjoyed the company of pot-hunters to gentile sportsmen and found their common bond – a passion for waterfowl hunting. Good humor abounds, but there are touching tributes to old friends, great dogs, and even a vision for what awaits us when our days are done. If you are a duck hunter, put this book on your reading list!” —Robert McLandress, Ph.D. Past President, California Waterfowl Association (currently – Associate In Waterfowl Management, University of California at Davis.)


Book Excerpt

~iii~ He came home with a hen spoonie after spending the entire day on the marsh. He'd shot poorly, and his dog had been sprayed by a skunk on the levee. He's torn the crotch of his new waders, and somehow lost his favorite duck call. His wife was visiting her mother, so he ate a t.v. dinner and went to bed with the smell of skunk up his nose. He dreamed he was being boiled in a cauldron by a giant, naked chicken with shark teeth, while his wife and his dog sat at a card table playing gin rummy.
