Airplanes Make Life More Difficult for Wild Fowl

Record #:
Airplanes became the solution to open new territory for avid duck hunters. During the early 20th century, hunting for fowl was popular and traditional sport along the Outer Banks. So predominate was the sport that by the 1940s fowl populations were already dwindling, pushing hunters to more remote areas accessible only by plane. It was during this period the government began to regulate the number of birds bagged in a given season to protect the diminishing populations of ducks and geese that landed on the eastern shore of North Carolina.
