Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World Radio is featuring three award winning wildlife artists week. Host Rob Keck is talking to 16 year old Stacy Shen, the winner of the 2016-17 Federal Junior Duck Stamp competition and Joseph Hautman, the winner of this year’s Federal Duck Stamp competition then on to a renowned wildlife artist whose art has graced the covers of Outdoor Life magazine, Ryan Kirby.
The show will highlight how wildlife art has generated hundreds of millions of dollars for wildlife conservation through the sale of wildlife art prints through organizations like Ducks Unlimited, the National Wild Turkey Federation, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and numerous other conservation groups. Additionally, hundreds of millions of dollars have been raised by hunters and stamp collectors through the sale of both Federal and state duck stamps providing funds for waterfowl and wetland conservation as well as environmental education.
