Delta Waterfowl Hires Regional Director for Ontario

TURKEY POINT, ONTARIO — Barry Keicks is Delta’s new regional events director in Canada.

After serving on a successful Delta chapter committee for more than 10 years, Keicks, 56, has been hired to lead chapters in Ontario. His goal is to conduct successful fundraising events that support Delta’s mission to produce ducks and ensure the future of duck hunting throughout North America.

Keicks has worked as a production manager for a medical instrument company, and has experience in the outdoors world as a long-time hunting guide and promotional staff member. He’s also a former hockey and lacrosse coach who enjoys working with young people.

“After I quit coaching, I really missed working with kids,” he said. “In my new role with Delta, I see a lot of opportunity throughout Ontario to promote youth hunting.”

Keicks said he was hooked for life as a waterfowl hunter when he shot a goose at age 15.

“I love hunting Canada geese,” he said. “It just never gets old.”

Keicks points to Delta’s strong momentum in Ontario on the heels of the Great Lakes Initiative, and he plans to use his hunting industry connections to build even more support for The Duck Hunters Organization throughout the province.

“I think there’s a good opportunity here to further the Delta brand,” he said.

Keicks lives in Iroquois, Ontario, with wife Nicole, and a faithful 8-year-old black Lab, Gauge.

He can be reached at or (613) 363-6849.

Delta Waterfowl Foundation is The Duck Hunters Organization, a leading conservation group working to produce ducks and ensure the tradition of duck hunting in North America. Visit
