Waterfowl hunting is the practice of hunting geese, ducks and other waterfowl for food and sport. In many countries, commercial waterfowl hunting is prohibited. Anyone here want to share more reviews?

I've only seen one canvasback while hunting. It landed in the decoys and I told my buddy that he got the first shot but he better not miss cause he wasn't getting another. He stoned it with his shot, I could not believe it.

The name "canvasback" is derived from the dusty white feathers on its back and sides. English settlers along the Atlantic coast thought these feathers looked like white canvas fabric.                         Though fewer people hunt "King Can" than once did, everyone should witness once in their lifetime the thrill of a flock of cans ripping over decoys on a crossing wind.                                                          http://www.ducks.org/Conservation/Waterfowl-Research-Science/Photo-Essay-Canvasbacks

Far as sharing another review. 

Think our season dates need to be reviewed. IMO, our season opener, split and close date sucks.

Some reason this does spark a memory, a story I once heard. Now I think I may need to Google it myself. So, I was told back in the day market hunters would pack canvas bags full of ducks. By train, transporting the ducks to the city. On the bags filled with ducks they would write "canvasback". Meaning please send the bags back. So they could fill them with more ducks. And the ducks they targeted and sold was, now what we know as the Canvasback. And that's how they got the name.?
