WHAT THE UWC CHALLENGE HAS MEANT TO OUR MEMBERS:

miranda_uwcMy name is Miranda Simpson. I am twelve years old and live in the mountains of Colorado. I have been tagging along with my dad on hunting trips for as long as I can remember and started carrying my own gun four seasons ago, after passing my hunter safety course. Taking the Ultimate Waterfowler’s Challenge has been a great experience! I love to hunt waterfowl and the quest to harvest different species has made it even more fun. It has made me more selective and more aware of what kind of bird I’m shooting at, and it gives me incentive to keep hunting even when it’s tough. This has been a difficult season with not many birds in our usual spots and bitter cold temperatures but the chance to reach “Master Waterfowl Hunter” kept me going. I took my fifteenth species, a Ringneck, when it was twenty-six degrees below zero. As my dad and I continued to hunt for that elusive fifteenth species I came to realize that while the challenge may be to harvest as many species as possible the result is making memories that will last a lifetime!

dan_uwcThe UWC Challenge has reinvigorated my passion for the sport of waterfowl hunting. Now every time I shoot a different species of duck, it feels like the first time all over again! It has truly enhanced each and every day I spend in the field.

The UWC Challenge has taken me to places of the country I would never have gone. I have since had the opportunity to shoot Sea ducks on the ocean in New England, I have hunt Mottled ducks in the Florida Everglades, I even shot a massive 21 pound Tundra swan in North Dakota! It has created memories that will last a lifetime. I highly recommend to every SERIOUS waterfowl hunter- Sign up for the challenge today, you won’t regret it!

denny_uwcAs an avid waterfowl hunter, I’ve hunted both coasts, Canada and Mexico. The Ultimate Waterfowl Challenge has brought a new and exciting interest to harvesting a specific species. Now I’m more interested in what will be my next waterfowl species harvested, to get to the next challenge level, rather than hunting the same location and species on every hunt.
