This is the story of Dale Hamm, one of the the best-known market hunters (taking waterfowl out of season and selling them to restaurants). Learning his craft from his father, Hamm kept his family in the 1930s and 40s by poaching. Market hunting has died out, but Hamm's reminiscences are vivid.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A day in 1901 at Crane Lake, seven miles west of [Illinois Highway] 78, changed duck hunting forever. That day, four men killed 867 ducks. The next year, in large part owing to that day, the first duck limits were established in the United States. The limit was 50 a day."David Bakke, from the Introduction"
