|Life is good on the prairie|
By Will Maines
LIFE IS GOOD. Life is being in North Dakota the first week of October for the opening week of duck season. There is no other place I’d rather be that week and, for the 20th year I am wandering the prairie, wading the sloughs and plowing through the cattails chasing after the ducks, geese, sandhill cranes and, this year, tundra swans, that so richly populate the greatest waterfowling territory in North America.Tennessee John and I crossed the Red River of the North at Grand Forks about four o’clock Thursday afternoon last week on our way to open up duck camp in Egeland, N.D.
