Dotting the sky over Back Bay of Virginia last week, flight after flight of ducks and geese, with winter nipping at their heels, beat southward in the kind of scene that drew early-rising hunters from warm beds across the country

Splashing Ducks, put up by a passing boat, take to the air on Back Bay where enthusiastic Virginia hunters reported sighting rafts of as many as 10,000 blacks and canvasbacks last week.

Senator Robertson, normally a crack shot, misses on a pair of ringnecks. As the ducks crossed in front of the blind, General Everest (whose gun barrel in foreground appears dangerously close because of the camera angle) got his chance and scored a neat, skillful double.

Opening Virginia's Back Bay season were Lieutenant General Frank F. Everest of the Air Force (left) and Senator A. Willis Robertson of Virginia, coauthor of the Pittman-Robertson Act, probably the most important wild-life legislation since 1900
