BISMARCK, NORTH DAKOTA — Realtree, the world’s leading camouflage company, continues its legacy of strong backing for conservation by renewing a corporate partnership with Delta Waterfowl.
For the next three years, Realtree will support Delta’s conservation programs and efforts to recruit and retain waterfowl hunters throughout North America. With the agreement, Realtree becomes the “Official Camo Conservation Partner” of Delta Waterfowl, as well as a Presenting Sponsor of Delta’s First Hunt and First-Duck Pin programs.
“At Realtree, we believe in taking an active role in wildlife conservation, habitat improvement, and the protection of our hunting heritage,” said Bill Jordan, Realtree designer and president. “These beliefs align perfectly with Delta Waterfowl, and our renewed commitment to Delta brings real energy to all of our efforts. We sincerely hope that many other manufacturers, retailers and hunters will follow us by joining Delta to help in all of their significant efforts to make the future one that we as hunters can be proud of.”
Delta’s First Hunt, the largest waterfowl-specific hunter recruitment program in North America, has introduced more than 50,000 people to the traditions of duck and goose hunting. First Hunt is delivered through Delta’s ever-growing network of volunteer chapters. Delta awards First-Duck Pins and a certificate of recognition to hunters who send in a story and photo of taking their first duck or goose.
“The backing of Realtree is an important and fantastic boost for our efforts to recruit the next generation of waterfowl hunters,” said Dr. Scott Petrie, chief executive officer for Delta Waterfowl. “We greatly appreciate Realtree’s commitment to conservation and support for Delta’s programs.”
In addition to a major presence at Delta’s First Hunt and chapter events, Realtree will promote MAX-5 camouflage on Delta’s website and social media platforms. Delta also has the opportunity to promote The Duck Hunters Organization on Realtree’s waterfowl hunting blog and social media.
