McCreight joined the Delta Waterfowl Board of Directors in January 2018.

The 63-year-old Mississippi native is the president of a private equity-backed oil and gas exploration and production company in Texas. He has been an oil and gas company executive since 1982.

An avid duck hunter since his childhood, McCreight fondly recalls those youthful trips with his father to hunt in green timber. Over the years, he has enjoyed a wide range of outdoor experiences, including hunting big-game on other continents. But he always comes back to waterfowl.

“My true passion is shooting mallards and running Labs,” he said.

McCreight became aware of Delta Waterfowl a decade ago through acquaintance with Will Yandell, who is now Delta’s chairman of the board. McCreight said he appreciates Delta’s values and mission as The Duck Hunters Organization, so he wanted to get more involved.

“I’ve met a lot of people in the south and southeast, so I think I can help raise Delta’s profile as we grow the organization,” he said. “I’m a true believer that Delta’s work to raise more ducks is good for every duck hunter.”
