Delta Waterfowl Magazine

Delta’s outstanding membership magazine is published 5 times a year to celebrate the rich traditions of waterfowl hunting throughout the United States and Canada. In addition, the magazine keeps members and supporters informed about the important conservation work The Duck Hunters Organization is doing for ducks and duck hunters.

Winter Issue Highlights Late-Season Tactics, Delta’s Expansion East

The Duck Hunters Organization is expanding its reach to the west and — as highlighted in the Winter Issue of Delta Waterfowl magazine — the east. You’ll learn about the opening of Delta’s Hunting Heritage & Conservation Center in Ontario, which will serve as a base of operations for Delta’s Great Lakes Initiative. Delta launched the GLI earlier this year to focus on wetland conservation, research, education, duck production programs and hunter advocacy throughout the vital Great Lakes region — which supports an estimated 7 million spring migrant waterfowl, 12 million fall migrants and 1 million wintering waterfowl.

Speaking of duck production, you’ll enjoy the inspiring success story of wood duck boxes and Delta Hen Houses in North America — both of which have ties to the pioneers of Delta Waterfowl.

Is there a better time to hunt ducks than after the drakes are fully plumed and there’s a deep chill in the air? The Winter Issue celebrates late-season ’fowling with David Stimac’s stunning photos of ducks and geese braving the snow and ice. Ken Bailey explains why duck season heats up when the weather cools off, while Joe Shead provides a gripping tale of mallards whipped into a wintery frenzy.

You’ll join editor Paul Wait in Mississippi for a flooded rice hunt that yields unexpected thrills, discover the keys to hunting stale diving ducks from Brian Lovett, and gain insights from Jeff Helsdon on how migratory bird hunters can help manage burgeoning crow populations.

As always, the Winter Issue carries a full slate of informative and entertaining columns such as Duck Dogs, Shotgunning, Strategies and Traditions to help you get the most from your waterfowl season.
