MEMPHIS, Tenn. July 10, 2017 This week on Ducks Unlimited TV, the crew visits two prime waterfowling destinations in the Great Lakes region of Ohio and Michigan. Watch it on the Pursuit Channel or at

First, Wade Bourne visits northwest Ohio to hunt with DU partners on the shores of Lake Erie. "This is a very historic area," said Bourne. "Right where we are, around Port Clinton, are the oldest continuous duck-hunting clubs in North America. So, a lot of good history here, a lot of conservation and a lot of good hunting."

Then Field Hudnall heads to Michigans Saginaw Bay to hunt big-water divers. "Guys that hunt this area, theyve really got something special," said Hudnall. "Theres a lot of waterfowl in this area. Its rich in waterfowling heritage. And its an area that, as a waterfowl hunter, you need to come and visit at some point."

Also this week: DU CEO Dale Hall explains why habitats in the Great Lakes region are so important to breeding mallards. Retriever trainer Mike Stewart shows how to prepare your dog to make extra-long retrieves. And DU Magazine Shotgun Columnist Phil Bourjaily talks about shotgun beads and how to use them.
