About the Hosts
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."
Phil Bourjaily has always loved the muddy places waterfowl call home. He sold his first outdoor story on snipe hunting in 1985. Since then he has become a very accomplished writer and shotgun columnist for both Ducks Unlimited and Field and Stream magazines. Phil has traveled widely in pursuit of birds, waterfowl and turkeys and enjoys cooking wild game, a roasted late-season Canada goose is among his favorite meals. A 1981 graduate of the University of Virginia, he makes his home today in his native Iowa with his wife Pamela and their two German shorthaired pointers.
"As much as i enjoy shotguns and wingshooting, in the big picture, giving people advice about guns and ammunition is nowhere near as important as educating them about wetland conservation and the challenge facing it," said Phil. I'm excited to be able to spread that word as a DU TV co-host."
