Welcome to the blog page for Phil Kahnke Waterfowl.  Throughout the upcoming issues of this blog you will see information about my photography and the process that I go through to get my photos, often including breakdowns of specific photos and a story to go along with them.  It would be of no surprise to have some hunting stories mixed in as well as discussions on topics related to waterfowl and or photography that I'd love to hear feedback on and have some open conversations on.

The Facemask Conundrum

April 26, 2018  •  2 Comments
A quick swipe through any social media outlet during duck season will give you an often humorous glance of the three main face concealment options.

My first taste of snow goose, cooked amazingly well, was on a trip to eastern SD about 15 years ago. A f...
