The stooges are tricked by some con men into selling memberships to a phony duck hunting club. To the amazement of the con men, they sell all the memberships to the police department. When the bad guys skip town, the stooges are stuck at a duck-less lake with a lodge full of cops and plenty of trouble ahead. Moe and Larry stall the cops with duck decoys while Curly searches for some real ducks. The boys think their troubles are solved when Curly returns with a whole flock, but it turns out the ducks belong to local farmer and the boys leave in a hail of buckshot. Written by

Decent short has the Three Stooges running into con men who convinces the boys to go out and sell memberships to a fake duck hunting club. The boys end up selling to a bunch of police so when they take them to the club they learn that there aren't any ducks so they must do their best to come up with some. This is yet another pretty good short that manages to have quite a few laughs even if the end result isn't one of the best in the series. There are several funny moments here but one of the highlights has to be when Curly accidentally shoots a hole in the boat they're in so Larry shoots another to let the water out. Another funny site is when Moe is bent over hunting not knowing there's a duck on his back, which of course Larry sees and tries to shoot. The start of the film deals with the boys stealing watermelons and getting caught. This early stuff isn't nearly as funny as we get some gags repeated from previous films (which granted, did happen a lot). Fans of the series will no doubt find this to be a funny one but if someone's new then they'd probably want to start off with one of the better classics.
