Mentor of the Month

Though fairly new to waterfowling himself, Adam Beaucage managed to introduce his younger brother and a friend to the sport this season.

“This was the second time I took my younger brother and his friend out hunting. They had never been waterfowl hunting before this. I took them out the previous weekend and didn’t get any birds to commit. This weekend we had the perfect set up and ended up getting our limit of geese before 10 a.m. It was one of the best hunts of my life. I just recently got into waterfowl last year, practiced my calling and decoy set up and on this hunt everything came together perfectly. My brother and his friend are hooked, they’ve already bought all their waterfowl camo and now they’re on the hunt to buy some calls and blinds. It was an awesome experience getting these guys their first geese and having my own success calling geese in for the first time and having them work in perfectly.”

Have you recently mentored a new hunter? Visit, share your story and a photo, and we’ll send you some great keepsakes to celebrate your hunt! And don’t forget, when a new hunter bags a first duck, he or she can also earn a Delta First-Duck Pin and other great prizes from Realtree by submitting a letter detailing the experience, along with a photo.
