The last several years I have raved over the production value of the Ducks Unlimited films. But the latest trailer is jaw dropping from the point of view of family, conservation, outdoors, the importance of youth participation, and they look to the future. This is radio so you can't see the gorgeous photography of mountains, ponds filled with ducks, sportsmen pursuing their passion, and I could go on but... listen.

Ducks Unlimited today released the trailer film for its popular online series. Season five of DU Films travels from the marshes of Louisiana to the mountains of Montana while capturing the stories behind the volunteers who are the foundation of Ducks Unlimited.

Locations featured this season include the low country of South Carolina, coastal Washington State, the Indiana heartland and the North Dakota section of the Missouri River. Each film focuses on participants who spend countless hours working for Ducks Unlimited as well as enjoying the benefits of those efforts with friends and family.

"We are very excited to premiere season five of DU Films," said DU Director of Communications James Powell. "Each of the six DU Films features waterfowling adventure, breathtaking scenery and passionate volunteers who share a common goal of wetlands and waterfowl conservation. The stories we tell through DU Films get to the heart of what it means to be a DU volunteer."

Film one, "The Bartels," kicks off season five on March 1. In this film, the Bartels family from Louisiana show how waterfowling, wetland conservation and Ducks Unlimited have played a huge role in their lives. Current Louisiana DU State Chairman Nick Lichenstein is part of the Bartels family and is featured in the film. Subsequent episodes will follow each month during the spring and summer. Every film from previous seasons is available for viewing at

DU Films is a unique online film series from Ducks Unlimited, the world leader in wetlands and waterfowl conservation. Each film features thrilling hunting footage but also tells a story about waterfowl hunters who are passionate about hunting and giving back to the resource. DU Films presents all of this through thrilling waterfowl footage and intimate conversations with hunters across North America.
