About David: After five years in the USMC Infantry and a tour to Iraq, I've become a 100-percent, non-discriminating waterfowler. Whether it's jumping wooded creeks for early season teal and woodies, flooded pastures for migrating puddle ducks, field hunting BIG mallards, or layout blinds for geese, I love to do it all. If I'm not hunting waterfowl, I'm looking for and scouting birds. While I was raised on hunting big migrating geese in the Laq Qui Parle and Willmar areas, I now hunt mainly in the area from south of Alexandria to north of Willmar. I'm close to being finished with my BA degree in business economics from St. Cloud State University, and I look forward to helping Minnesota hunters get a leg up on where the ducks and geese are and what they're doing. Who's ready to get some?!?
