Number of days you hunt a season? About 15 to 20 days a year

Where do you hunt? In Arkansas, Oklahoma and South Dakota

Club name? Prairie Wings with Dr. Bo Busby and Stickpond with the McGeorge Family

Pump or semi-automatic? Benelli 12-gauge automatic

Duck call? Banfield’s Best, but I’m not very good. The ducks go the other way when I call. I like to hear good callers.

Fields, reservoir, river or timber? Prairie pot holes in South Dakota and timber in Arkansas

Rainy, nasty or bluebird sky? Bluebird sky is the best.

Favorite hunting story/memory? Last November at Prairie Wings, about 200 ducks came into the flooded timber right at shooting time and landed all around us. The noise of the wings was unbelievable. Everyone just froze. Nobody fired a shot, but we still limited out before 7:30 a.m. What a great memory.

Favorite place to eat during duck season? At Prairie Wings — the cooks, Aunty Egie Wilson and Billy Bogy put on a spread that’s hard to beat.

What got you into duck hunting? Started duck hunting with Marion Berry of Gillett years ago.

If you have children, do you take them duck hunting? If so, what are some of the highlights from these youth hunts? I used to take my boys (Todd, 40, and Marty, 35), when they were young to Marion Berry’s Greenhead Hunting Club. It was usually during Thanksgiving or Christmas break while they were in high school.

What is your most unusual “must have” in the duck blind? I like coffee.

Which Arkansas executive calls ducks the best? Dr. Bo Busby is good and so are the McGeorge brothers.
