Samenvatting

Wing-shooting is an American tradition dating back to the first time a scattergun was introduced to our continent. In a world of high tech gadgets designed to make the sport easier and more efficient, there are still many Waterfowlers and Upland hunters who choose to pursue their winged prey the old fashioned way. Follow two brothers and their friends as they wing-shoot a typical Washington State season adhering to the traditional techniques and values passed on from the many generations of Waterfowlers and Uplanders who came before them. The author John Otto tells of tales and adventures with his brother Jason as they hunt the vast and contrasting geography of their home state. From Grouse and Band-Tail pigeons found in the forest regions of the Cascade Mountains to Brant geese and Scaup of the historic Samish Bay, these brothers will take you on hunts as classic as those a hundred years before them. Covering all four corners of the state, the Otto's will expose the bounty Washington has to offer that not too many hunters are aware. No other state can boast the variety of species in full breeding plumage or offer such varied terrain and weather conditions for the serious wing-shooter. The over riding theme is one of family, tradition, and human values as several different relationship types surface. Be it the bond between man and dog, or the long storied theme of passing down through the family, or even the cherished relationship of the "hunting partner," this book will run you through the emotions experienced by the typical outdoor family and hunter. Sit back, recall, and let yourself fade into your own memories afield as you live through the passionate adventures of the Otto Brothers. This book is beautifully illustrated by artist Chris Engelhardt. Many of the fine pencil sketches were actually completed in the field as the events of the story in the book took place. A primary character, Captian David Drewry provides the forward with the insight only a grizzled old veteran guide could muster. Wrapping it all up is Jason Otto, Johns brother, hunting partner, and best friend. Jason also lends his skills as a sketch artist, illustrating his own written addition."
