Savage Arms knows that no matter how much your NRA Family loves the outdoors, sooner or later you're going to need to come home. As long as you're enjoying some creature comforts, you'll definitely enjoy checking out Savage's newest project: Savage Migration. This video series follows four avid hunters as they seek out waterfowl across the country. Savage Migration,  the result of a year following four hunters, showcases the unique challenges each hunter faces and how they adapt to new landscapes, set ups and weather.

Serene River Bottom in Colorado: Water is scarce in Colorado, and that makes hunting migrating ducks difficult. Courtney Nicolson frequently hunts private land with on a section of the South Platte River that has been carefully managed to provide quality habitat. Hunting this honey hole with the landowner, Courtney helps a new hunter bag one of her first ducks. 

Frozen Marsh in Utah: In his home state of Utah, Casey Smith hunts a frozen marsh and targets a hole in the ice. In the thick of winter, late season birds keep the water moving and the ice at bay as they feed. Hiding in white suits on the ice among silhouette decoys, Casey and his mentor Tony wait for the ducks to fly in. 

Flooded Fields in Oregon: Marcus Gores lives and breathes hunting. When he's not chasing big game around the world, he's hunting the waterfowl migration in Oregon. Bad weather means good duck hunting. More than anything, duck hunting for Marcus is about spending time with his family and enjoying blind snacks together. 

Missed Migration in South Dakota: Sometimes the migration isn’t where you expected, and you come up empty-handed. Sallie Doty’s duck hunt didn’t go as planned in South Dakota, but she didn’t want to waste an afternoon and had a different local bird in mind to hunt. 

The final video in the series, Redhead Paradise | Texas, brings all four waterfowlers together for a final hunt at Bay Flats Lodge on the Gulf Coast of Texas where the group is able to experience a hunting a new location after a challenging 2020 season.
