Another Breed of Currituck Duck Hunters
People called Currituck County a sportsman’s paradise back when the skies clouded over with ducks and the waters teemed with fish. The game is more elusive these days and the hunting methods more sophisticated, but author and native gunner Travis Morris shows that the thrill of it all is just as intense. There’s a three-strand cord that will forever bind Currituck gunners: passion for the hunt, love of the outdoors and respect for the dangers of open, shallow waters. From a 4-year-old boy on his first hunt with his grandfather to an 82-year-old woman who still loves to shoot her supper, Travis’ tales highlight both the heart and humor of sportspeople.
