I was fortunate enough to get a professor this semester who is letting us pick the topic for a 15 page paper. And of course being a duck hunter I chose waterfowl hunting and everything that encompasses it. I'm wondering if anyone here is aware of any good REPUTABLE sites or books that would help me in my research? Anything from management to government reports to the history of waterfowl hunting would be great.

.....and that should be enough reading to produce over 15 pages. Now, from the US dept of the interior you can access the USFWS site and get the low down on there side of the first duck season and the reasons that surrounded the formation. So depending on which direction your paper tends to lean, gov't or hunter you should be able to aquire the needed material.

Stillers duck camp might be Interesting more for a local old timers perspective. Also the diverse demograph of waterfowlers

"Mr. Buck", an autobiography of Nash Buckingham has some good info on the conservation movement, as does "Crusade for Wildlife" by James Trefethen. Back issues of "Wildfowl" mag has all kinds of info on the early days of waterfowling and the transition to todays game laws and conservation efforts. Same for the DU mags. The magazines will probably give you many more leads on books to check out also- good luck!
