September has arrived and waterfowl hunters have a smile on their faces. Duck numbers are up and opening day is drawing ever closer.
At Ducks Unlimited, we can't wait any longer. Today is our "Opening Day" and we want to celebrate it with you!
Starting today, you can visit the First Flight: Opening Day Web site at openingday.ducks.org. Back by popular demand, this site is the premier online resource dedicated exclusively for serious duck hunters. There will be new content every day, so check it out to gear up, prepare, share information and take advantage of the ultimate waterfowl hunters' resource.
There's really too much to list, but below are just a few of the features you'll find this year:
- DU's Waterfowl Migration Map
- Hunting reports from across the United States & Canada
- Tips, tactics and strategies from the pros
- The latest waterfowl hunting gear and guns
- Blog entries from DU staff and partners
- E-cards, wallpaper and much more
We're also excited to announce the first ever DU video contest. Be sure to take your camera to the blind this season and share your hunting experiences with other passionate waterfowlers. We want to see your tips, traditions and everything in between. Ten prizes will be awarded to finalists and the grand prize winner will receive a brand new Beretta Xtrema2 shotgun. Click here to watch a video for more contest information.
The First Flight: Opening Day experience is brought to you by Ducks Unlimited and our sponsors: Federal Premium, Realtree, LINE-X, Hevi-Shot, Beretta and Winchester Ammunition.
Opening day is coming. Get ready. Get excited. We'll be with you every step of the way.
