The Ducks are back in Red River said the flyer for the Ducks Unlimited dinner held last Thursday evening at the Coushatta Country Club. Attendees enjoyed a delicious fried catfish dinner and won some great prizes.
There was a live and a silent auction plus numerous raffles for hunting gear. There were also about a dozen guns raffled off. And someone went home with the Ducks Unlimited neon sign pictured with this article.
Guest speaker was Andy Thompson, the Louisiana Ducks Unlimited Chairman. Thompson said the DU priority is recruiting Greenwings, the term for youth members. Thompson said, “We are holding a drawing for a lifetime hunting license in the state of Louisiana.”
Thompson also unveiled plans for the next DU state convention to be held next summer in Shreveport. Thompson said, “A highlight of the convention will be our annual Road Kill Cookoff. There will be 15 to 20 teams from across the state fixing their favorite game dishes.” The state convention will be July 16ththrough 18th.
