Growing up in northern Illinois, Michael Kordek’s introduction to hunting stemmed from experiences collected over the course of his college education. His passion for hunting and experience in the marketing realm would prove to be the combination responsible for his search for a career in conservation and the outdoors.

Graduating from the University of Northern Iowa with a bachelor’s in marketing, a minor in business communication, and a master’s in communications studies, Kordek comes to The Duck Hunters Organization with valuable agency experience, where he focused on marketing brands in the outdoor and hunting industries.

“I look forward to contributing to Delta by increasing the social media following and providing those communities with content that displays the organization’s mission, and to inspire all duck hunters to support the organization,” Kordek said.

In the fall, when he is not hard at work with a hand in the organization’s digital content, you’ll find him in a duck blind or patiently waiting for geese to work a field. But, come spring, Kordek is occupied with yet another love—“chasing gobblers.”

“I am obsessed with turkey hunting,” Kordek said. “There is just nothing that comes close to the beauty of springtime in the turkey woods waiting for gobbles. But, as for waterfowl hunting, geese on a good feed are a rush!”

Kordek is based out of the Bismarck office where he plans to get a dog of his own, possibly a Lab, tough enough to bite back at the Bismarck winter.
