DU TV this week: A tribute to Wade Bourne

19 Sep

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – This week, Ducks Unlimited TV remembers the life of Wade Bourne, one of the best known and most respected outdoor communicators of his generation. Wade was a long-time host of DU TV, Editor at Large for Ducks Unlimited magazine and a passionate supporter of DU and its mission. He passed away in December of 2016.

This episode features some of Wade’s most memorable adventures from past seasons, plus his personal reflections on our wildlife resources, the people he shared blinds with and DU’s conservation work.

“Wade built an enduring relationship with Ducks Unlimited members and millions of America’s waterfowl hunters,” said DU CEO Dale Hall. “Through his work, generations of sportsmen and women learned to be better hunters and anglers. But more importantly, he taught them to be better stewards of our wildlife resources and outdoor heritage. Wade’s career made a lasting difference for waterfowl, for the habitats so vital to their survival and for all who enjoy this amazing resource.”

Also on DU TV this week: Ducks Unlimited magazine Shotgunning Columnist Phil Bourjaily explains different strategies for shooting doubles, and retriever trainer Mike Stewart explains how to “sweep” your dog’s eyes to remove foreign objects.
