About Ducks Unlimited

Filling the skies with waterfowl today, tomorrow and forever

Ducks Unlimited is the world's leader in wetlands and waterfowl conservation. DU got its start in 1937 during the Dust Bowl when North America’s drought-plagued waterfowl populations had plunged to unprecedented lows. Determined not to sit idly by as the continent’s waterfowl dwindled beyond recovery, a small group of sportsmen joined together to form an organization that became known as Ducks Unlimited. Its mission: habitat conservation.

Thanks to decades of abiding by that single mission, Ducks Unlimited is now the world’s largest and most effective private waterfowl and wetlands conservation organization. DU is able to multilaterally deliver its work through a series of partnerships with private individuals, landowners, agencies, scientific communities and other entities.

Ducks Unlimited takes a continental, landscape approach to wetland conservation.  DU has conserved more than 13 million acres of waterfowl habitat across North America.  While DU works in all 50 states, the organization focuses its efforts and resources on the habitats most beneficial to waterfowl

Mr. Glascock said “Kinion you should do your own local hunting show, I can put it on channel 17, I know our viewers would love to watch it.”

Kinion responded “I don’t have a clue of what to do or even how to do it, where would I start, or even what should I call it.” Kinion continued with the story “I know people are going to think that I am making this up, but it is the truth. I literally woke in the middle of the night, SOUTHERN BOYS OUTDOORS ! no SOUTHERN BOYZ OUTDOORS !, yes that was it.
