On the evening of Thursday November 12th, over 350 outdoorsman and women old and young alike descended on the Monroe Civic Center like a flock of mallards heading to their favorite hole.  The draw was the 2015 Delta Waterfowl Banquet.  With Perry and Associates as the title sponsor and Louisiana Land Bank, Marsala Beverage, Sparks Nissan Kia, Regions Bank, Gorilla Axle, Century Marketing Solutions, Braddock Land & Development, Louisiana Plastics, Dr. Justin Tarver and Dr. Martin DeGravelle, Russell Outdoor Enterprises, BayouLife and Simmons Sporting Goods as VIP Sponsors each individual knew the great times that lay ahead.  With over 30 table sponsors and donors, no one could go wrong with the items up for silent and live auctions.  Podnuh’s BBQ provided the feed for the flock while auctioneer Mike Ackel roused the crowd to raise the large sums of money for such a worthy cause….duck hunting on the bayou.

From hand crafted decoys and wildlife artwork to lavish bird hunting trips to Argentina, fish fryers and bbq grills with an unlimited amount of guns, Delta Waterfowl Banquet is no longer the secret find it once may have been.  Sold out for the second year running, Bryan Leach Delta Waterfowl Senior Regional Director led the events in support providing one of, if not the best outdoor banquets in the area for the 3rd largest chapter in the state.  Delta Waterfowl continues to be “the voice of the duck hunter.”  If you want to get involved or further your knowledge check out www.deltawaterfowl.org or call Joe King Montgomery at (318) 381-3065 joe.king@tfins.com.
