    Justin,
    Most of the bigger migratory waterfowl breeders arent on here.
    The Gamebid Gazette and A.P.W.S. magazines will help you a lot
    also google GBWF, It's should take you to a list of breeders and their classified ads, Hopfully some will answer here too for you, but just arent many of them on here.
    There are tons of breeders in the general area of the Great Lakes though. Minn, Wis, are full of them, as that is the best climate for breeding, and pretty much home to all of them naturally anyway.
    If you need a few names, PM me, will be glad to send you in the right direction for a few.
    As in any thing, there are a few "breeders" you will want to avoid too.
    Good luck, we need all the waterfowlers we can get

    climate.and water area, and natural/farm food sources. Plus your in the largest flyway in North America.
    The Mississippi river and Great Lakes are the largest breeding area for waterfowl in the US,
