In an effort to bolster waterfowl hunter numbers, Delta Waterfowl is launching the Mentor Recognition Program.
The new initiative — which is supported by a $25,000 grant from Cabela’s Outdoor Fund — is intended to raise awareness about the critical need to recruit new hunters and reward people who share their love of waterfowl hunting with others.
How the program works: Anyone who mentors a new waterfowl hunter is eligible to upload a photo and short story about the hunt (click here to access the form to do so). In recognition, Delta Waterfowl will send a certificate of appreciation, Delta Waterfowl Mentor hat, Delta decal and an engraved metal band to display on a call lanyard. The new hunter will get a merit certificate, Delta hat, two decals, and if successful at taking a duck or goose, they will earn a Delta Waterfowl First-Duck Pin.
In addition, the mentor and the new hunter will receive an entry ticket for Delta’s Special Waterfowlers Sweepstakes for a chance to win a Delta Waterfowl gear package by ALPS OutdoorZ (present the entry ticket at the registration desk at your local Delta Waterfowl chapter event). You do not have to be a Delta member to participate.
