Ducks Unlimited Conservation Award goes to Wade Bourne

Ducks Unlimited Recognizes Wade Bourne’s Conservation Efforts. Wade Bourne’s name is one of the most recognized in the outdoors. Bourne was a full-time outdoor writer/broadcaster whose works have appeared regularly before national reading, listening and viewing audiences over the past four decades. Bourne passed away in December. “As a professional outdoor writer and broadcaster, Wade educated his audience about waterfowl and conservation issues and was extremely proud of his association with Ducks Unlimited. Wade described himself as being ‘eaten-up’ with duck and goose hunting for half a century,” said DU Chief Conservation Officer Paul Schmidt. Prior to that, Bourne hosted In-Fisherman Radio, the largest syndicated outdoor radio show in North America. He served as an editor-at-large for Ducks Unlimited magazine and senior writer for Bassmaster Magazine. He also authored six books. But, more importantly, he taught them to be better stewards of our wildlife resources and our outdoor heritage.”
