American Birdhunter – Mallard Tracker featured
This episode from the Outdoor Channel’s American Birdhunter features our Mallard Tracker program (timestamp 5:50 – 9:50). While hunting with Nate Salisbury of Blackdog Guide Service in Ontario, the crew of American Birdhunter shot one of our banded hen Mallards that had a GPS unit attached to it. This hen was part of our Mallard Tracker program and this episode of American Birdhunter features the crews response to this exciting surprise!
