MEMPHIS, Tenn. – June 26, 2018 – Ducks Unlimited TV kicks off its 2018 season this week and introduces viewers to its two new co-hosts, Doug Larsen and Cara Harper.
Larsen hunts opening weekend in Minnesota with a group of passionate DU volunteers. “I was really enthused when I heard from DU and they said we’d like you to go to Fairmont, Minnesota, to meet this dynamic group of volunteers,” said Larsen. “I was so excited because I literally cut my teeth duck hunting not 20 miles down the road from this part of the world and shot my first duck literally 15 or 20 miles away.”
Harper hunts her home state of Arkansas with members of a local high school DU chapter. “This is a really special hunt for us because we’re hunting with two Ducks Unlimited Varsity chapter members,” said Harper. “It’s neat now to see that you can start these kids off with the Greenwing program, and now high school Varsity and then Ducks Unlimited collegiate and just on and on. It’s awesome to see how you can grow Ducks Unlimited.”
Also on DU TV this week: Ducks Unlimited CEO Dale Hall explains how DU’s Living Lakes Initiative is conserving vital waterfowl habitat in Minnesota and Iowa. Retriever trainer Mike Stewart shows how to teach your dog to hunt for shed antlers. And DU Magazine Shotgunning Columnist Phil Bourjaily demonstrates how to clean and care for your choke tubes.
