Ben Haff hails from Sand Springs, Oklahoma, a town west of Tulsa that lies on the Arkansas River. He began his journey with Delta Waterfowl as a research assistant, sparking a lifelong connection with waterfowl and waterfowl hunters. He later graduated from Oklahoma State University with a bachelor of science degree in wildlife and fisheries ecology. Now, with two decades of experience in conservation—including a stint in the outdoor industry working with duck and goose decoys—Haff has dedicated a significant amount of time as a volunteer for various conservation groups.

“I am passionate about wildlife conservation and hunting heritage in general,” Haff said. “My specialty is all things waterfowl and waterfowl hunting. I am excited to support our team of dedicated volunteers as they work hard to help Delta Waterfowl achieve their goals. Together, we can enjoy, grow, protect, and pass on our favorite outdoor passion of waterfowl hunting.”

When not working, Haff enjoys the simpler things in life.

“I am a pretty simple guy,” he said. “In my free time, you’ll find me setting the hook, pulling the trigger, releasing an arrow, working with a retriever, enjoying time with family, attending our church, or coaching youth sports in my community.”

But when fall rolls around, he prefers to be on big water hunts on public land.

“I am admittedly a mallard snob,” Haff said. “Show me a cold, sunny day with a consistent wind, 100 super-magnum duck decoys, and a seasoned black Lab, and I’ll show you a happy version of myself.”

He has two bird dogs himself: a black Lab named Pearl, and a cocker spaniel named Copper.
