In this follow up to his best-selling book Don't Shoot the Decoys, author Doug Larsen offers more humorous observations on the sport of waterfowling. The book begins with a hilarious "Open Letter to the Duck Gods," in which Larsen wonders aloud about what he has done to deserve the wrath of the duck hunting deities, which have obviously conspired against him to ruin his hunting season, his physical and mental health, and his family life. "Three weeks into the season," he writes, "with only two weeks left to go. Everything seems to be going against me, and I wouldn't know a limit of ducks if I tripped over one."

Read from the Book

"On a day when the lead story on the national news was the unveiling of a new people-mover-scooter device that I cannot see myself riding neither on the sidewalk nor the street, nor in this lifetime, the celebrity news also reported that pop star Madonna really had gone pheasant shooting. Weighing the gravity of both of these stories, or perhaps mildly jealous that Madonna was out hunting and I wasn't, I decided that it would be prudent for me to tidy up my things, and disappear for a duck hunt."
