title Hunting for Money: Market Gunning in Prince Edward Island

description Time is of the essence. It is early morning on the shore of Malpeque Bay, the first week in October, perhaps this year, perhaps last. In front of the blind the outlines of plastic decoys are dark spots on the water; they bob gently in the slow swell of the incoming tide. It is a quiet morning, but now some wake-up calls start among the marsh-dwellers. An early rising Yellowlegs tries his harsh whistle — loud enough to turn a sheepdog at a mile. Jacksnipe are on the move to their feeding places, banking and twisting in flight like tiny fighting planes. The birds seem noisier than usual; they sense something different in their shoreline life. It is a different day. In fact, it is Opening Day of the waterfowl season.
