The Eastern Shore of Virginia Historical Society presents their Winter Lecture Series with local author and hunter C. L. Marshall. Mr. Marshall is an award-winning writer, and author of “Chesapeake Bay Duck Hunting Tales.” He was the former sports editor for the “Eastern Shore News,” editor of the “Mid-Atlantic Fisherman,” cofounder of “Shore Golf Magazine” and author of “A Taste of Eastern Shore Living.” C. L. grew up near Saxis Island in Virginia and currently resides in Pocomoke City, Maryland.
All lectures will be held at the Onancock Baptist Church from 6 – 7 p.m. The first lecture in the series, “Traditional Eastern Shore Waterfowl Hunting,” will begin Friday, February 3. C. L. will discuss the rich history and traditions of Eastern Shore waterfowl hunting, and its most influential clubs, hotbeds and techniques. The second lecture, “Bayside vs. Seaside: Different Playing Fields,” will be Friday, February 17. These two local areas are filled with fowl, but have diverse terrain. Different target species demand creativity to meet market demand. The final lecture, “The Changing Face of the Eastern Flyway and How it Impacts Us,” will be held Friday, March 3. Although it was said many years ago, “the times are changing, and those that have not kept pace will be left behind,” the traditional ways of waterfowl hunting are disappearing quickly. This lecture will look at recent changes and discuss its impact on modern waterfowl hunting.
