2014 Michigan Duck Stamp & Prints Available Now

Michigan --(Ammoland.com)- The Michigan Duck Hunters Association ( MDHA ) , in cooperation with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, introduces the 2014 collector-edition Michigan duck stamp and prints.

The Michigan Duck Stamp Program, established in 1976, has become an icon for waterfowl hunters and wetland conservation enthusiasts. During the past 38 years, the program has gained popularity with collectors and conservation groups throughout the United States.

The Michigan Duck Hunters Association coordinates the Michigan waterfowl stamp program in partnership with the DNR. MDHA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to waterfowl and wetland conservation. Proceeds from stamp sales will be used to fund MDHA projects, with 10 percent used to match DNR funding for purchasing wetlands.

The 2014 Michigan duck stamp features a pair of long-tailed ducks in flight, painted by Christopher Smith, a wildlife artist from Suttons Bay, Michigan. This is Smith’s second Michigan Duck Stamp Contest victory. He won first place in 2005 and second place in 2012. Smith was also named Michigan Ducks Unlimited Sponsor Artist of the Year in 2009 and 2014.

The purchase of Michigan waterfowl stamps and prints helps to ensure continued wetlands acquisition and habitat programs. Purchase of these collector-edition stamps is voluntary and does not replace the state waterfowl hunting license. MDHA will mail individuals who purchase a 2014 waterfowl hunting license a free copy of the stamp (subject to availability) if they send a self-addressed, stamped envelope with a copy of their Michigan waterfowl hunting license to:

Michigan Duck Hunters Association
Waterfowl Stamp Program
P.O. Box 20, Midland, MI 48640

The Michigan duck stamp should not to be confused with the Federal Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp (also known as the Federal Duck Stamp), which is required for waterfowl hunting.

The 2014-15 waterfowl hunting season continues the celebration of the Michigan Waterfowl Legacy, a 10-year, cooperative partnership to restore, conserve and celebrate Michigan’s waterfowl, wetlands and waterfowl hunting community. For more information, visit www.michigan.gov/mwl.
