The Wild Duck Chase - by Martin J. Smith Hard Cover 272 pages ..... $18.50

The Wild Duck Chase - by Martin J. Smith Soft Cover 262 pages ....... $13.95
The Wild Duck Chase takes readers into the world of competitive duck painting as it played out during the 2010 Federal Duck Stamp Contest. As Smith chronicles in his revealing narrative, within the microcosm of the duck stamp contest are intense ideological and cultural clashes between the mostly rural hunters who buy the stamps and the suburban and urban birders and conservationists who decry the hunting of waterfowl. At issue is preserving the habitat of ducks and waterfowl for all to enjoy.

The competition also fuels dynamic tensions between competitors and judges, and among the invariably ambitious, sometimes obsessive, and often eccentric artists, including Minnesota's three fabled Hautman brothers, the "New York Yankees" of competitive duck painting. Smith takes readers down an arcane and uniquely American rabbit hole into a wonderland of talent, ego, art, controversy, scandal, big money, and migratory waterfowl.
