MEMPHIS, Tenn. Sept. 5, 2017 This week on Ducks Unlimited TV, Ainsley Beeman returns to the flooded timber of Arkansas for late-season mallards. Then the DU TV crew joins a young man experiencing one of his first duck hunts on the Arkansas Youth Day.

If youve got mallards flying and youre in the timber, theres really nothing quite like it, said Beeman. Its really awesome to see one of those single hens come in and land and just watch her there on the water and then see her get up and leave. Every time I do I think about Ducks Unlimited and what it stands for. Were here to make sure were filling the skies with waterfowl today, tomorrow and forever.

I think its important to get kids out to hunt, and also to get them involved in the process, said DU member Philip Pounders, who hunted the Youth Day with his nephew, Jaison. Its important to not only teach them to hunt, but teach them to hunt in the right ways.
Also on DU TV this week: DU CEO Dale Hall explains why mallards love flooded timber habitats. Ducks Unlimited magazine Shotgunning Columnist Phil Bourjaily explains how to increase your success on overhead shots. And retriever trainer Mike Stewart discusses techniques to encourage your dog to use his nose.
