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."
Wade has long been familiar to Ducks Unlimited members and sportsmen across the continent. Bourne is Editor-At-Large for DU Magazine and contributes features and columns to each issue. He has been involved with DU TV since 2004, sharing his waterfowl exploits and expertise with viewers throughout North America. He has authored six books, including Ducks Unlimited Guide to Decoys and How to Use Them and Ducks Unlimited Guide to Hunting Dabblers. As a lifelong outdoor writer and broadcaster, he has covered waterfowl and conservation issues for 35 years. He also has been "eaten-up" with duck and goose hunting for over 50 years.
Bourne says, "I'm excited to be a part of the new ‘Dream Team' for DU TV. Field Hudnall and Zach Pederson bring a combination of hunting know-how and energy to keep the show's pace moving. My step may be a little slower, but my enthusiasm for hunting and waterfowl conservation will keep pace with these younger guys. Plus, add in Ainsley Beeman's hosting skills, and I'm confident we have a winning combination."
Bourne adds, "Working for and representing Ducks Unlimited has been the highlight of my professional career. The mission, the people, the places, the adventures: they combine to be a waterfowler's dream job. I look forward to continuing to share the joy of the outdoors and the huge importance of DU's mission through my work on DU TV."
Ainsley is no stranger to duck blinds. From pit blinds in the rice fields to big fancy floaters on scenic cypress-filled lakes of Northeast Louisiana, Ainsley grew up watching her dad and his buddies pursue their passion for waterfowl. Once she was old enough to handle her youth model 20 gauge, she took her place on the shooting bench as more than a youthful observer. Always intrigued and fascinated by a bird on the wing, waterfowl hunting was a natural transition for Ainsley in her love for the outdoors. Ainsley quickly grew to appreciate the fellowship found in like-minded individuals spending time marveling over waterfowl and what it takes to hunt them effectively, all the while conservatively managing one of nature's most fragile resources. It's no wonder that Ainsley is a staunch advocate of introducing a child to the world of waterfowling at an early age. Obviously, it's helped mold her into the young woman she is today.
"As a little girl I can remember sitting on my grandfather's lap flipping through his DU magazines. I love the challenge of trying to identify the same birds I saw on the page now in sky. I seldom turned down a chance to participate in anything pertaining to waterfowling. Each hunt produces lessons learned and a greater love for the good Lord's creation. I have made many fond memories sitting in a duck blind among friends and family. DU's passion for conservation has played a part in making those memories possible, which is why I am so honored to be representing the iconic Ducks Unlimited as one of the new hosts for DU TV."
John Paul Morris
Born in the beautiful Ozark plateau region of southeast Missouri, John Paul Morris had no shortage of hunting opportunities as a young man. Now an incredibly accomplished outdoorsman, he took his first deer, a 9-point buck, with a rifle at age 7, and downed a doe with a bow just 2 years later. His preferred method of hunting now is archery, and in 2011 he crowned his still short hunting career by arrowing a 1500 pound Kodiak Island brown bear that measured 10-1/2 feet on the square.
A member of the RedHead Pro Hunting Team, John Paul has hunted on 5 continents, but loves hunting the American Midwest as much as any exotic location his adventures have exposed him to. His biggest whitetail (yet) is a massive 225 point Iowa buck—a true wall-hanger from the heartland.
Fellow RedHead Pro Hunting Team member and mentor Jerry Martin says of John Paul: "I’ve seen him shoot some awesome groups at long ranges, and his accomplishments on big game are just as impressive."
With elk, cape buffalo, mule deer, alligator gar, and more under his belt, he's got multiple grand slams in the making. John Paul also enjoys bowfishing for trophy river monsters and wingshooting with his dog Teak. Stay tuned to follow his incredible hunting exploits still to come!
