Join Me on a Culinary Duck Hunt
Hunt waterfowl, eat great food, learn how to prep and cook ducks and geese
It's almost a year out, but you don't want to miss this chance: I’m excited to partner again with Larry Robinson of Coastal Wings for our 2024 Duck Hunting Culinary School - three days of hunting, eating and learning with me at Larry's lodge in Oklahoma.
We have 12 spots open. You would arrive at the lodge on Jan. 21 and hunt the mornings of Jan. 22-24.

While we can’t guarantee limits of course, the hunting is typically very good in late January. Lots of puddle ducks and lesser Canada geese, and sometimes you’ll get a chance at specklebelly geese and high-quality divers like canvasbacks and redheads.
You can be as hands-on as you want. After each hunt we pluck and/or skin out the birds — and I’ll go over when one is better than the other — and I’ll demo both dry plucking and the wax method.
I’ll also show you how to properly cook duck breasts, prep giblets and break down birds.
Each night I’ll be cooking you dinner with the help of one or more guest chefs, including Joshua Valentine, who was a finalist on the TV show “Top Chef.”
Cost is $2,250/person, which includes guided hunts, lodging and all meals. If you don’t have one of my books and want one, let me know and I will bring it for you as a bonus.
Newcomers are welcome, but if you are new to hunting or just to duck hunting, we will want you to keep in touch with us between now and the hunt so we can help you be successful.
Email me at email@example.com if you want in.
First-come, first served, and your spot will be secured with your payment.
