As the holiday season approaches, it’s a perfect time to give thanks: For thriving waterfowl populations, for time spent in the blind with family and friends, and for all that Delta Waterfowl achieved for ducks and duck hunters in 2019 through support from donors like you.
We must continue to conserve breeding duck habitat to sustain high duck numbers. We’re still working to expand our Hen House, Working Wetlands, and Predator Management programs to achieve their full duck-production potential. And the future of waterfowl hunting faces dim prospects if we do not continue to fight threats to hunting and ensure there is a new generation of hunters to inherit the tradition. Delta Waterfowl can provide a bright future for ducks and duck hunting, but not without help from waterfowlers like you. As a past Delta donor, we hope we can count on you to make a tax-deductible gift to The Duck Hunters Organization today.
Here’s just a portion of what The Duck Hunters Organization accomplished for you this year:
Installed 550 new Hen Houses, bringing the total fleet to more than 8,500 mallard-producing nest structures in key areas of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, North Dakota, Iowa and Minnesota.
Conducted intensive Predator Management on 26 sites across North Dakota and the Canadian prairies, more than doubling nesting success (over unmanaged sites) and adding thousands of ducks to the fall flight.
Successfully advocated for the inclusion of Delta Waterfowl’s Working Wetlands program in the 2018 Farm Bill, establishing a voluntary, incentive-based conservation program to protect America’s most critical wetlands for breeding ducks.
Created the blueprint upon which Manitoba based its historic GROW (Growing Outcomes for Watersheds) initiative to safeguard critical waterfowl nesting habitat.
Launched HunteR3, an innovative approach to recruiting, retaining and reactivating waterfowl hunters in North America. Notably, HunteR3 expands and enhances delivery of the University Hunting Program, Mentor Recognition Program, and First Hunt — the world’s largest waterfowl-specific hunter recruitment program.
Continued ground-breaking research on raccoon trapping techniques and strategies, the use of drones in assessing duck populations, expansion of ring-necked duck tracking with GPS transmitters, analysis of harvest data to evaluate pintail production and much more.
Served as the voice of duck hunters everywhere through Defend the Hunt efforts, including thwarting an attempt to ban hunting on Gravelly Bay in Ontario, and successfully advocating for the further expansion of quality hunting access on National Wildlife Refuges and elsewhere.
