Yandell Appointed as the New Chairman of the Board of Delta Waterfowl

Delta Waterfowl Appoints New Chairman of the Board. “I joined the board because I believed I could make a difference in advancing Delta’s goals and objectives,” he said. “My priorities are to make sure Delta remains financially sound and delivers conservation projects and waterfowl research our members want.” Yandell has a diverse business background, with experience in agriculture, oil and gas, wireless telecommunications and real estate. In 2010, he became a partner at Heritage Land & Development, a company that redevelops historical buildings. Yandell holds degrees from Woodberry Forest School, Rhodes College and the University of Mississippi Law School. He went on his first duck hunt two years later at a flooded timber club in Mississippi. “I love any type of wing shooting, but my favorite is duck hunting,” Yandell said. I remember when hunting with my father, I would want to shoot the ringnecks and he would want to shoot the mallards.” With Delta’s strong commitment to duck production, conserving breeding duck habitat, hunter recruitment and retention, and leading-edge waterfowl research, the organization is poised to have an even greater impact for duck hunters. Thomas G. Henning of Lake Charles, Louisiana, has joined as a new board member. Delta Waterfowl is The Duck Hunters Organization, working to produce ducks and secure the future of waterfowl hunting.
