Hunt Like a Girl 02/04/2023

Hunt Like a Girl

It’s no secret that women are the fastest-growing demographic in the hunting community. While the outdoors industry is making strides in creating new products for women and including female “influencers” in their marketing efforts, Shoot Like a Girl (SLG) is going a step further to actively bring more women into the hunting community. In fact, SLG’s sole mission is to empower women to participate in the shooting sports with confidence. Now Beretta USA is partnering with SLG to bring that mission to life via a spinoff program called Hunt Like a Girl.
___

"I’ve been hunting my entire life, but it wasn’t until I went on this trip that I realized just how out of place some women feel in the hunting community. Waterfowl hunting in particular can be intimidating due to the technical aspects of shooting, calling, identifying birds, setting decoys, etc. If you don’t grow up immersed in the sport or have the right mentor, there are times when a duck blind can seem like a very unwelcoming place ... Don’t get me wrong. I love hunting with men, but it’s nice to take a break from the 'bro culture' sometimes. My experience at Hunt Like a Girl empowered me to embrace my role as a waterfowler and a mentor, and to champion female involvement in all aspects of the sport. Many of the women who attend events like this find a community of likeminded hunters, which they can relate to and rely on in the future." - Mallori Murphey, DU's social media specialist

World Wetlands Day: Part of DU’s mission is to raise public awareness about the benefits wetlands provide as waterfowl habitats and as critical natural water filters. Wetlands provide many services to our communities, including flood storage, groundwater recharge, carbon sequestration, enhanced fish habitat, and much more.

“Wetlands conservation is what we do. Ducks Unlimited volunteers, members, sponsors, and supporters have spent the last 86 years restoring or protecting more than 15.5 million acres of habitat in North America. I’m proud to say that every day is World Wetlands Day at Ducks Unlimited.” - DU Chief Conservation Officer Karen Waldrop

DU Podcast: Ep. 467 – Does Moonlight Affect Duck Movements?
Listen now: http://bit.ly/40fCcLV

We’ve all heard the stories or experienced it ourselves…bright moonlit nights affecting duck behaviors and making for tough hunting the next day. But what does science tell us about this phenomenon? Do ducks really move more during bright nights and less the next day? Starla Phelps, graduate student at University of Arkansas-Monticello sits down with Dr. Mike Brasher to discuss her recently completed research and share what she learned by marking and tracking over 200 ducks.

Big Dogs, Little Dogs

There has been a recent trend toward using smaller dogs to retrieve waterfowl. This includes not only smaller breeds, such as Boykin spaniels and English cocker spaniels, but also smaller individuals from more traditional retrieving breeds, such as Labs, goldens, and Chessies.

01/31/2023

For most waterfowl hunters, the hunting season never lasts quite long enough. Just when it seems the ducks are finally plentiful or when you're looking for a bright spot to end the season, it's time to put the guns away for those eight or so long months until the next one opens. But for more than two decades, hunters have found some consolation in federally litigated light goose hunting, which lasts as long as the geese are around. So what made the government step in and throw hunters a bone? The answer is actually a matter of ecosystem conservation.

The Ducks Unlimited Story: True to Our Nature (From the Ducks Unlimited Archives)

86 Years of Conservation: In 1937, a small group of visionaries and community leaders set out to save North America's waterfowl populations while celebrating the continent's strong waterfowling heritage. Stressing the critical role wetlands play across North America, DU committed to this mission at the height of the Great Depression and one of the worst droughts in history.

Today marks the 86th anniversary of Ducks Unlimited. Our work has led to the conservation of more than 15 million acres and counting, thanks to tireless support from generations of members, volunteers, and partners who are part of the mission to conserve and restore wetlands and other vital habitats for North America's waterfowl.

We've stayed true to our nature for over eight decades. Enjoy this short film from the archives that tells our story. Here's to conservation for generations to come.

Few things are more exciting for waterfowl hunters than harvesting that once-in-a-lifetime hybrid. Invariably, the feat leads to excited discussion and questions about which two species produced it, how it happened, and of course, whether hybrids are sterile. On this episode, Dr. Mike Brasher asks the expert, Dr. Phil Lavretsky, that most important question… Are hybrid waterfowl sterile?

The 2022–2023 Louisiana duck season is in the home stretch. The entire state is open and closes on January 29. The weather since the new year has been the typical roller coaster, from freezing lows to record highs.

The January LDWF aerial waterfowl survey continues to show numbers below the long-term average. The most recent survey totaled just under 2 million ducks across the state. The survey included the southwest, southeast, and Little River Basin (formerly named Catahoula Lake) areas.

Hunters and habitats in the western US have whipsawed from drought to deluge in recent weeks, as a series of atmospheric rivers have brought extreme rain, snow, and flooding. Dr. Fritz Reid joins Dr. Mike Brasher for an update on the California hunting season and how the storms have affected the outlook on drought and water conditions. While totals are well above seasonal averages, many lakes remain below capacity and additional moisture is needed between now and spring.
