Waterfowl artist and Minnesota native Jim Hautman paid a visit on Dec. 18 to DU national headquarters in Memphis, Tenn., to view DU's complete collection of federal duck stamp prints. Hautman, who is the current DU Artist of the Year, won the 2011 Federal Duck Stamp contest (he also won in 1989, 1994 and 1998) with his acrylic painting of a pair of white-fronted geese.

On hand to greet Hautman was DU National Secretary Steve Reynolds. After touring the duck stamp collection, Reynolds showed Hautman DU's display of Nash Buckingham's legendary shotgun Bo Whoop, which was donated to DU by Hal Howard Jr. Reynolds and Hautman later viewed a complete collection of Ducks Unlimited dinner guns dating from 1973 to 2009. The collection was donated by DU member Tony Palermo.
