From Delta Waterfowl:
BISMARCK, NORTH DAKOTA — Whether it’s a passing flock of mallards with its eyes toward avoiding danger, or a group of pro-hunting advocates, there is strength in numbers. Especially when each individual is ardently committed to the cause.
That was the inspiration behind Delta Waterfowl’s new Duck Hunters Action Alert System, an interactive phone and computer app that allows passionate duck hunters to help defend duck hunting anytime, anywhere it’s threatened — including in their own backyards.
“I don’t know of any conservation group that offers this level of transparency,” said Cyrus Baird, Delta’s senior director of government affairs. “The software allows someone in, say, Missouri, to click on bills in their area and learn why The Duck Hunters Organization supports or opposes the legislation. It’s a game-changer at the local level.”
While the number of threats to ducks and duck hunting continue to increase — including proposed access closures, reductions of critical conservation funding, and excessive regulations — the Duck Hunters Action Alert System will allow Delta Waterfowl, its committed members, and waterfowlers throughout North America to remain the voice of the duck hunter.
“No group has a more motivated, robust army of members and volunteers than Delta Waterfowl,” Baird said. “I’m just one guy working on issues at the state and local levels. But in Texas I have more than 20,000 people willing to act and contact lawmakers. In Louisiana, I have nearly 30,000. I have thousands of people in Pennsylvania, Illinois, California — you name it. When we ring the alarm, they mobilize and respond, and with the Duck Hunters Action Alert System, we’re only going to get better from here.”
To signup, simply visit the Duck Hunters Action Alert System online portal or text “Delta Waterfowl” to 52886. Then, when directed, contact your elected officials to ensure waterfowlers continue to have a seat at the legislative table. Your information will remain private and you won’t receive spam — Delta simply wants your help in fighting for ducks and duck hunters.
