Honoring Waterfowl and the Majestic Wetlands They Inhabit
The migration of North American waterfowl is among the most beautiful and awe-inspiring spectacles in all of nature. It’s not uncommon to see large flocks of geese overhead, as they gracefully move through the sky. It’s a sight that always stirs a special feeling, and reminds us a change of seasons is in the works.
Through the tireless efforts of Ducks Unlimited, leader in wetlands conservation, our knowledge and respect for the preservation of North American waterfowl has grown dramatically over the years. Their results have been extremely successful, and so today, outdoorsmen and wildlife lovers alike are able to continue to enjoy the grace and beauty of America’s abundant waterfowl.
Today, some may take the natural beauty of North American waterfowl and their wetland homes for granted. In the 1930’s, the weather disaster known as the “Dust Bowl” threatened the future of North America’s beloved waterfowl, drying up the wetlands the birds needed for nesting and breeding. Without special care for the wetlands, we risk losing our favorite species of waterfowl, such as the mallard, wigeon, green-winged teal, and of course, Canada geese. With the careful attention to waterfowl and their habitats that Ducks Unlimited and their members are renowned for, the wetlands are in good hands for future generations.
If you’re a waterfowler, you certainly know and appreciate the many accomplishments of Ducks Unlimited. Because of their work, generations of sportsmen have been able to enjoy the waterfowling experience. Each year they can count on waterfowl flying south in the fall and returning north in the spring. For the waterfowl hunter, the fall migration is an experience that is anticipated for weeks, even months in advance.
Now, America Remembers and Ducks Unlimited are pleased to issue the Ducks Unlimited Tribute to Waterfowl Shotgun, an exclusive Tribute honoring North America’s magnificent waterfowl and Ducks Unlimited’s unmatched role as the leader in wetlands conservation. Since Ducks Unlimited’s founding in 1937, they have become the world’s largest private waterfowl and wetlands conservation organization and have contributed to the conservation of more than 13 million acres of prime wildlife habitat across North America. They are a volunteer-based non-profit organization with more than 647,000 dedicated members, and one message: to protect, restore and enhance the habitats of North America’s majestic waterfowl.
For this Tribute, we’ve selected the Browning Silver Hunter™ auto-loading 12-gauge shotgun. The Silver Hunter™ maintains Browning’s legendary reputation for quality-built firearms and is a trusted favorite among countless American sportsmen. Craftsmen commissioned specifically for this project by America Remembers adorn each of these handsome Tributes with artwork in stunning 24-karat gold and nickel, and a blackened patinaed background to highlight the remarkable details. The Tribute exquisitely captures some of America’s favorite waterfowl species on a classic shotgun.
The right side features a close-up image of a mallard framed with cattails and reeds. The center image features a banner reading “Leaders in Wetlands Conservation” below a scene of waterfowl in flight, including a wigeon, a pair of mallards, and a Canada goose. To the far right, the familiar DU logo is featured.
The left side of the receiver features a pair of mallards in flight, a gadwall, a wigeon, and a green-winged teal with banners reading “Ducks Unlimited” and “Tribute to Waterfowl” framing the scene. A pair of Canada geese are also displayed. Canada geese mate for life, and this pair is spending time together in the water. Both sides feature scrollwork capturing the natural wetland habitat of waterfowl, including cattails and reeds.
The Tribute’s rich walnut stocks complement the elegant 24-karat gold and the cool brushed nickel of the receiver.
