IRON RIVER — The Iron County Ducks Unlimited (DU) will host its 40th banquet at Young’s on Saturday, Oct. 26.
“Once again. the Iron County Ducks Unlimited committee is hard at work,” said Dan French chairperson. “There will be many door prizes, including a grand door prize of a kayak package. The evening will have numerous activities; raffles and games along with silent and live auctions. There will be quality prizes including guns, limited artwork, unique DU products, the DU Gun of the Year and the popular commemorative shotgun given in memory of Jim Sapletal.
“North American waterfowl and other wildlife species face more and more threats every day: habitat loss, predation, pollution, disease and more. With Ducks Unlimited, we’re working hard to identify the factors that limit out wildlife populations or design conservation programs that insure healthy wildlife for the future.”
