Revered by old-time waterfowlers as “The King” of Ducks, the honorable Canvasback brought the highest dollar amount of any species in the marsh during the days of market hunting. In the right market, cans coming from areas that harbored large amounts of wild celery such as the Susquehanna Flats, a ‘prime’ pair could be sold for the equivalent of $100 in today’s currency. Market hunting birthed in America in the early 1800s and since its’ end with the Migratory Bird Treaty Act in 1918, Canvasbacks have seen their share of ups and downs. Thanks to quality management and conservation practices, current populations are healthy, and we can continue to witness their majesty and grace as we attempt to put a bead in front of those distinctive long sloping foreheads as they rip over the decoys. LONG LIVE "THE KING!"
