DALLAS, Texas – April 29, 2022 – The second annual Ducks Unlimited Expo (DUX) drew an impressive number of hunters, anglers, and outdoor enthusiasts to the Texas Motor Speedway to see and test the latest and greatest outdoor gear, attend seminars and demonstrations and meet noted outdoor influencers and personalities, face-to-face. Presented by Purina Pro Plan and backed by an extraordinary list of sponsors, the event indeed had something for everyone.
“DU is an organization of volunteers and partners dedicated to ensuring habitat is available to migrating waterfowl and wildlife, and clean water is available for communities across North America,” said Adam Putnam, DU CEO. “The DU Expo and DU’s on-the-ground conservation work would not be possible without support from our amazing sponsors and volunteers.”
