MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Oct. 6, 2015 – While most people are prepping for Halloween during October, outdoorsmen and women will also be gearing up for this fall's hunting seasons. To support these conservation-minded hunters and anglers gearing up for the fall, Bass Pro Shops has designated the entire month of October as Ducks Unlimited (DU) month.
During the month of October, Bass Pro Shops' retail stores in the United States will offer the "Round-up for Conservation" program at the register when making purchases. In addition to the donations from customers, Bass Pro will match each donation by 50 percent.
"DU Month is but one more way Bass Pro Shops Founder Johnny Morris and his associates at Bass Pro Shops support conservation and the Ducks Unlimited mission," said DU CEO Dale Hall. "His generosity has put DU in front of tens of thousands of outdoorsmen and women across the country. The great team at Bass Pro doesn't just advocate for conservation, they help make it happen."
Last year's DU Month raised nearly $100,000 for wetlands and waterfowl conservation delivery. Since its inception in 2007, the program has raised nearly half a million dollars for conservation.
