The Decoys, Guides, Clubs, and Places, 1870s to 1970s

“A Hundred Years of Texas Waterfowl Hunting brings back so many wonderful memories from the short era that I have lived during this book. The people and the stories are legendary in the Texas waterfowling community, and Rob Sawyer does an outstanding job bringing this history to life! Rob paints a picture of the evolution of waterfowling in the Lone Star State that allows the reader to envision themselves living in each era. As senior regional director for Ducks Unlimited in Southeast Texas, I live and breathe waterfowl, and I would recommend this book to everyone who steps outdoors.”

— Tim Soderquist, Southeast Texas Ducks Unlimited Senior-Regional Director

“. . . very enjoyable read . . . an excellent reference source for additional research . . . most comprehensive, geographically and biographically, that I am aware of . . . a real contribution to the field . . . landmark work.”

— Michael E. Berger, former director of the Wildlife Division of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department
