Stunning cinematography and expert insight from The Duck Hunters Organization reveal why quality hunting in the South is massively dependent upon good duck production in the North.
BISMARCK, NORTH DAKOTA — Delta Waterfowl proudly introduces Part One of its film series, “The Duck Connection,” illustrating why quality hunting in the South is massively dependent upon good duck production in the North.
In the two-part film produced in association with Arterra Media, Delta’s chief scientist, Dr. Frank Rohwer, guides a tour of North America’s duck mega-producer — the prairie pothole region — and explores why its wetlands help produce 70 percent of North America’s ducks. Then, you’ll follow the migration south, where Rohwer and Delta volunteer, Bryan Glass, celebrate the fruits of Delta’s efforts: Ducks over decoys.
“The prairie pothole region is a huge area, much bigger than the size of Texas, and yet relative to where the total range of where ducks nest, it’s a tiny fraction,” Rohwer said. “But it produces the vast majority of our ducks. It’s where it makes sense for Delta to work.”
If you love ducks and want more of them over your decoys, then don’t miss a second of “The Duck Connection.” It’s a collection of stunning footage portraying Delta’s membership-driven efforts for waterfowlers in the South, North and continent-wide.
“I was a diehard hunter and then I came up to the prairies and … boy I just love this place,” Rohwer said. “And as a waterfowl scientist, knowing that most of what drives duck numbers happens here, I opted to stay. If you want more ducks, then this is where you work.”
