Here’s just a portion of what The Duck Hunters Organization accomplished for you this year:

Delta Hen House

deployments increased to nearly 9,000 mallard-producing nest structures in key areas of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, North Dakota, Iowa and Minnesota. These effective and cost-efficient structures added tens of thousands of ducks to the fall flight.


Delta’s Working Wetlands
prototype was actualized in 2020, as enrollments open in four state for the Prairie Pothole Water quality and Wildlife Habitat Program administered by the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service. Farmers and ranchers in North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa signed up to maintain temporary and seasonal wetlands on their properties. In North Dakota alone, the initial enrollment is expected to conserve more than 30,000 duck-producing wetlands.

Predator Management on 26 sites across North Dakota and the Canadian Prairies more than doubled nesting success (over unmanaged sites) and added tens of thousands of ducks to the fall flight.

Manitoba’s GROW Initiative, which is based on Delta’s Alternative Land Use Service’s model, rolled out and doubled financial resources committed to conserving important ephemeral and temporary wetlands. The goal is to conserve at least 90 percent of these vital waterfowl breeding habitats in Manitoba’s agricultural regions. The GROW Initiative is crucial to enhancing duck production in the province as breeding habitat loss has been dramatic for decades.

Defending the Hunt efforts expanded quality hunting access and supported waterfowl hunters on the local and national levels. Ten of the priority refuges cited by Delta were opened to expanded waterfowl hunting opportunities as part of the largest single expansion of refuge hunting access ever by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Delta’s HunteR3 University Hunting Program created 612 new advocates for waterfowl hunting among wildlife management students from 24 universities across the United States and Canada. These were young people with little or no association to hunting who now understand, respect and advocate for waterfowl hunting.

Continued cutting-edge research studying eastern mallard populations, Lower Mississippi Flyway dabbling ducks, 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.
