The author of A Hundred Years of Texas Waterfowl Hunting: The Decoys, Guides, Clubs, and Places, 1870s to 1970s (2012) and Texas Market Hunting: Stories of Waterfowl, Game Laws, and Outlaws (2013) both published by Texas A&M University Press. The seeds of Rob's lifelong waterfowl hunting passion were first sown in 1964 on Maryland's Chesapeake Bay. Rob currently resides in Sugar Land, TX, with his wife Wendy and Matagorda Mattie, a black Labrador Retriever. He can be found each year from September through February prowling the Texas prairie and coast in search of ducks and snipe.
Rob was recently featured on the popular duck hunting podcast: Duck Season Somewhere. Check out each episode through the links below!

Images of the Hunt: A Photographic History of Texas Waterfowling is the third volume in R.K. Sawyer's Texas waterfowl history series. The work is an image record of Texas duck hunting from the late 1800s, and the century-old images provide a fascinating look at those that came before us. The student of Texas waterfowl hunting will be grateful for the view.

Images of the Hunt is a treasure to be enjoyed not only by the hunter but anyone who has an appreciation for Texas history or the outdoors. Rob has captured the evolution of Texas wildfowl hunting through rare historical photographs and brings it to life with “how it was” at the turn of the last century to the end of the 20th century. I am amazed by the story.
