Ducks Unlimited Inc., the world's largest non-profit organization dedicated to conserving North America's continually disappearing waterfowl habitats, is releasing a new series of free-to-watch online films. The latest, "Building a Tradition," follows Eric Dunn and his son, Tucker, as they reveal their passion for waterfowl hunting and details their work to create a Central Flyway oasis for migrating birds. The Dunns own Hooray Ranch, near Wichita, where they have been building waterfowl habitat and creating a tradition of hunting and conservation.
"We love shooting our limits and we love shooting ducks and geese. It's who we are," said Eric Dunn. "But we also love watching them come back through in March and having a place to rest and having something to eat. We're building traditions out there, and who doesn't want to do that? There's so much more to it than just hunting. Tucker will tell you the same thing. He's a 12-year-old kid that's already thinking of the legacy that he's going to be able to create for our future family members."
Produced in partnership with Rock Road Creative, DU Films goes beyond the confines and formulas of traditional hunting shows, presenting the beauty and passion of waterfowling in new and unexpected ways. DU Films includes six short films that will air on the DU website this spring. Viewers can watch the first three films and find more information about the series at www.ducks.org/dufilms. New films will be released each month through July.
DU Films is made possible through sponsorships from Sitka Gear, Buck Gardner Calls and The Original Muck Boot Company.
