    Episode 43 - The Jim "Big Jim" McConville Story

    Wildfowl’s own larger-than-life Jim “Big Jim” McConville gets a turn to tell his story about the long road to waterfowling from a rich Ohio upbringing. A much-loved character in the industry, Big Jim is descended from market gunners, had to balance hunting with an elite football career, has built his own lethal giant goose decoys, and as our national sales manager, has some wild yarns about heading out over a mile on Great Lakes ice to kill ducks with his dad. He also provides some advice for beginners to follow their passion and always comes from a place of utter truths.
