The beginning of fall marks the start of duck hunting season in Maryland. While not every Marylander is a duck hunter, the state has a rich tradition of hunting waterfowl – both for food and sport. While I understand the sporting aspect of duck hunting, I prefer to hunt for my dinner – and there is no duck I would rather eat than the canvasback duck.
