One person's love affair with duck hunting, and all things that go with the sport: guns, dogs, decoys, duck conservation and photography. Near the banks of the Missouri River in northwest Missouri is where Jay Gore spent much of the first 18 years of his life. At age 10, he hunted small game in woodlots on family farms. Millions of ducks and geese that used the Missouri River as a corridor for migration provided many opportunities to hone his waterfowling skills. Pursuing these waterfowl gave Mr. Gore the spark to pursue a career in wildlife management. He obtained BS (1963) and MS (1965) degrees at South Dakota State University and the University of Maine respectively. He was a senior waterfowl biologist for six years with the Tennessee Fish and Game Commission. He had a 30-year career with three Federal agencies, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and USDA Forest Service.
