Waterfowl On The Mind. Long Island P.E.

     The dog days of summer hardly seem the time to be thinking of waterfowling. But with the early goose season just three months off, now is the time to start preparing. Here is a quick photo essay of the Long Island shore, some ingenuity, and a bit of sucess.

ASO Pro-Staffer S. Shea lives and works in NYC. He is a dedicated small game, and waterfowl hunter. He routinely hunts sun up, to sun down, and has outlasted many a bird dog.
