Athens, Ga. I grew up in a southern life style. I remember at an early age that my grandfather would take me fishing and taught me how to shoot. It was not until when I got into college till I learned about my passion for waterfowl. It not just limiting out that gets me excited. It`s getting out in Gods creation is what I like as well. Every hunt has a story and every hunt makes more memories.
-More then just a hunt-
I grew up in a small town called Leesburg, Ga which is where I still call home. I am a Marketing student at Georgia Southwestern University and graduate Fall 2017. Growing up life was simple for a guy like myself. Playing ball during the hot months and then being drug into the deer stand with my father every chance we had when the season came. It wasn’t until the early years of high school that I took up the love for hunting waterfowl. You talk to other waterfowl hunters and they’ll say the same, “there’s just something about it.”, and that is definitely the truth, you can’t put it into words. My love for the sport grew at an alarming rate and before you knew it, I was in the water any chance I had. I didn’t think that my love for duck hunting could increase until I bought my lab Gunner, after tons of hours of hard work, his first hunt was a success. Seeing him retrieve his first duck was a memory I will never forget. That is one of the main reasons why I pursue this sport. It is an indescribable time of the year where we get to enjoy God’s creation with the people that mean the most to us. It’s more than just the limits, big bucks, size bag of bass, it’s about the memories we make in the sport of hunting.
I started hunting at the age of 7 on our family swamp. I soon became addicted to the sight of cupped wings. If I'm not hunting I'm training my dogs and thinking about how can I fool the ducks easier for next season.
Orlando Fl. Grew up hunting and fishing, and have always been passionate about anything outdoors. Nothing better than an early morning up in a stand or out on the water!

I am from a small town in North Georgia. I've been hunting Waterfowl for 10 years now. My life evolves around Waterfowl hunting and the conservation of the wetlands. When it's not hunting season I'm always on the water photographing and studying the behavior of waterfowl. I almost like taking shots with my camera more than with my gun. There's no other feeling like ducks landing in your spread at sunrise on a cold morning. The future of waterfowl hunting is our hands.
From Georgia and now live in South Florida near lake Okeechobee. I've hunted since I could walk and climb in a stand. I've taken on different hunting opportunities over the years and I keep myself busy year round working on blinds, planting food plots and getting ready for the season to come.
I'm from Greenville South Carolina and I feel like I would be a great application for your pro staff team. The reason I feel I would be a great option is I will out work any person to find ducks. I am a fire fighter so my schedule allows for me to have days off at a time and all I do is scout. The next reason is I love to film hunts and what better way to get your product out there than with videos.
Clewiston, Florida. Located on the southern end of Lake Okeechobee. I hunt because it is more than a sport for me, it's a passion. From the time I could barely shoot a gun with my grandfather to now, I have found that the outdoors is where I can perform to my full ability.
I was introduced to the waterfowl game at the early age of 5 years old, I knew at that time I was hooked, AND I would chase many dreams along the way. I am very fortunate to experience and enjoy times from the marsh to the timber with my family and friends new and old. In my eye, there is no better sound than a water hole full of mallards singing their song

Round Rock, Texas. Grew up hunting in deep south Texas at the age of 7. We were 6 miles from the border of Mexico. Since then I have hunted all over the great state of Texas. But my favorite thing about hunting is waking up before the sun comes up, sneaking into the blind and watching the world wake up around you is the most relaxing thing ever.
Georgetown SC. I've been waterfowl hunting ever since I was old enough to fit into waders. Waterfowl hunting is a way of life for me, so much that I work at a waterfowl plantation in SC. I am a field guide for Pintail Creek Outfitters in AR. I am blessed to be apart of Backwoods Waterfowl.

I am 25 years old. I am a pitcher in the Arizona Diamondbacks Organization. Waterfowl hunting is my passion. I remember my first morning in a duck blind and I was hooked. I have been waterfowl hunting for about 8 years now. Growing up, My father was a white tail deer and dove hunter, but he also loved going bass fishing on the river. We have even done a black bear hunt in Canada together. I remember when we would go fishing on those early mornings on the river, I used to see wood ducks flying all over the place. It reminded me of dove hunting. I always told myself, when I had a truck and could go alone, I would pursue these ducks on the river, because the river, bayou, and swamp is my favorite place to be. Sure enough, I filled that promise to myself and turned 16 got my truck and a small Jon boat and took my journeys to the river. My first wood duck that fell made a feeling in me that was way better than anything other thing I had ever done hunting. Watching the birds fly like jets, and cutting so elegantly was beautiful to me. And then watching them crash down into a decoy spread made my heart beat fast. I have never lost that feeling every time I see Ducks flying in. My passion has never changed, but my knowledge of these birds and the importance of conserving them has grew. I love every part part from the early wake up calls to watching the dog work to bring them back.
Shawn Riche 23 years old from Baton Rouge Louisiana. I started hunting at the age of 17 my friend brought me for the first time and I absolutely feel in love. There is nothing like waking up in the morning hanging out with your friends watching a beautiful sunrise waiting on the sky to fill up with ducks.
My name is Jacob Broyles. I shoot trap, skeet and sporting clays with my high school shooting team and will be participating on the fishing team as well. Although I am young I have been hunting and fishing for several years. One of my biggest passions is duck hunting. I duck hunt private and public land, mainly lakes in north Texas region. Hunting lakes is tough because it is hard to pattern ducks if u do not do much scouting. I love to get up early on the day of the hunt, get to the lake, pick out the location and build the blind and set up decoys. Feeling the cold weather before sunrise and the anticipation of what could happen in any hunt really excites me. Seeing a group of ducks in the distance and calling those ducks into the spread is one of the coolest things I have experienced. Basically, I just love being in the outdoors, weather it's bass fishing, duck hunting or shooting clays. I would rather be outdoors than indoors any day of the week.
