2016 DU Member Photo Contest

Congratulations to Michael Kleinwolterink, this year's overall winner!

As a lifelong resident of west-central Iowa, Mike Kleinwolterink is no stranger to the outdoors. He grew up helping his father and grandfather on the family farm, and spent his free time hunting small game. He joined the staff at the local Lake Panorama National Golf Course at age 16, which offered him the opportunity to work outside and led to his introduction to waterfowling.
