About the Hosts
Field Hudnall went on his first duck hunt when he was 8 years old. He has been hooked ever since. Field is not only a designer and builder of hunting calls, he is also one of best callers in the world. He is the only caller ever to win a world goose calling title and a world duck calling title in the same night, and is the only caller ever to win the prestigious International Goose Calling Championship back to back.
"Having grown up watching Ducks Unlimited Television and supporting Ducks Unlimited, I could not be more proud to be a part of this show," said Field. "I am proud to be supporting Ducks Unlimited and their mission to conserve wetlands and waterfowl across North America. After traveling all over the US and Canada, and having the opportunity to see the work that DU is doing, I am confident there is no better way to ensure the future of our waterfowling heritage than to support DU."
Ashley Ward's passion for the outdoors began at an early age. From dove and ducks to turkey and deer, Ward never missed a chance to be in the outdoors with her dad. At the age of 5, Ward received her first shotgun; a single shot .410 that had been passed down in the family for decades.
Ward spent most of her hunting seasons in the Mississippi Delta with her dad, but one particular morning in a flooded timber hole on youth weekend, her passion for waterfowl hunting began.
"I was hooked. It was early and it was cold, but I didn't even notice; I was just so happy to be there," Ward recalled. "Watching the world wake up around you and hearing the whistling of the wings above you, there is truly nothing like it. I will never be able to thank my dad enough for including me on his hunting excursions, and more importantly a mother who understood the importance of getting a child in the outdoors."
As time went on, her love for waterfowl hunting and the outdoors continued to grow. An active member in the local 4-H, Ward took her love for shooting sports to the next level. After years of competing at state 4-H competitions, Ward took her shot-gunning skills to compete in the 4-H national competition in Grand Isle, Nebraska, in 2008.
Ward is now the Manager of Event Marketing for Ducks Unlimited, and is an active volunteer for her local chapter.
"Growing up, my dad never missed an opportunity to teach me the importance of conservation, and the important work DU is doing. I am thankful for the opportunity to share my passion for the outdoors with others," Ward said. "My goal through hosting DUTV is to encourage more women and youth to become involved in the outdoors. The future of Ducks Unlimited lies heavily within the next generation, and it is our responsibility to mold these youth into true conservation leaders."
Doug Larsen has lived a life that has always been linked to the outdoors. He has been a tireless duck hunter since early childhood and he has hunted waterfowl at home and in more than a dozen foreign countries. He has authored two books on duck hunting, "Don't Shoot the Decoys" and "The Duck Gods Must Be Crazy," and he writes regularly for Ducks Unlimited magazine and other outdoor publications. He has waited for legal shooting time across more than 40 seasons, yet is always looking forward to the next one. He lives in Pennsylvania with his wife, two Labradors, and a mountain of waterfowling paraphernalia.
"I'm humbled to be joining the other hosts of DUTV, and I have such admiration for DU and the vital preservation work they do," said Doug. "DU has been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember, and when I was a kid I often dreamt of working with Ducks Unlimited. Years later it is astounding to me to have had that dream come true. I look forward to sharing hunting and habitat insights with DUTV's viewers."
Cara's love for the outdoors was kindled at a young age while living on the outskirts of Stuttgart, Arkansas. Her family operated a duck hunting guide service, and she started tagging along with her father and brother on their hunting and fishing excursions at the age of three. Growing up in Arkansas, she formed a special appreciation for working mallards in the timber. Her father taught her how to blow a duck call, drive a boat, set up a decoy spread, and handle the retriever. Cara is an all-around sportsperson, pursuing everything from bugling elk in the Rocky Mountains to thundering gobblers in the Heartland, plus any and all game in between. She is a member of various wildlife conservation groups, as well as being an advocate for the outdoors lifestyle.
"I was thrilled to begin the journey as a co-host for Ducks Unlimited TV," said Cara. "Supporting wetland and waterfowl conservation is something I hold close to my heart. I aim to encourage more women and youth to get involved and experience the unique camaraderie that is shared in a duck blind among friends and family, as well as their retrievers. I believe it is essential to involve children at an early age to educate them about wildlife, firearm safety, and conservation, which will ultimately shape and mold them into future leaders in waterfowl conservation."
