MEMPHIS, Tenn. August 21, 2017 This week on Ducks Unlimited TV, the crew heads to two locations in west Tennessee to hunt with DU college volunteers and calling legend Buck Gardner.

Ainsley Beeman joins a group of college students from across the country as they meet up in a Tennessee duck blind to hunt the flooded timber and discuss their shared passion for conservation.

"I was very fortunate to be a part of some of the first (collegiate) chapters in the state of Tennessee," said DU Volunteer Sam Bradshaw. "Once we started, it just took off. It was a big rivalry. We all enjoyed it. And the relationships that have been built have been great."

Next, Ashley Ward joins Buck Gardner and friends for some more exceptional Tennessee duck hunting. "Ive known Buck since I started working for Ducks Unlimited," said Ward. "And just being able to share a blind with him, especially when the birds arent working, hes always there for a good story. Being able to hear how he got started duck hunting and even how he got started calling was just so neat and something Im going to treasure forever."

Also on DU TV this week: DU CEO Dale Hall discusses Rescue Our Wetlands, the organization's fundraising and conservation campaign. Retriever trainer Mike Stewart explains how to be prepared for emergencies in the field. And Ducks Unlimited Magazine Shotgunning Columnist Phil Bourjaily gives tips for hitting crossing shots.
