IT IS ALL IN THE NAME: I get asked all the time….what does AWA stand for? AWA started with Anatidae Wingshooting Adventures in 2013…..a.k.a. AWA Waterfowling. AWA was created so others could follow my hunting adventures from the praires of North Dakota and Canada to the tundra of remote Alaska. Not to mention the wonderful lifestyle I live 365 days a year here on the farm in the Prairie Pothole Region of North Dakota. AWA is really a culmination of my life’s work and involvement with waterfowl and waterfowl hunting…..over 30+ years. Being a Waterfowl Biologist by trade….I wanted a name that was fitting….Anatidae….the biological family of birds that include Ducks, Geese and Swans. So….now you know….it is my life come full circle….it really is. AWA holds special meaning for me….as do my logos which have a military theme (AWA Gun Dogs – ARMY STAR and AWA Waterfowling – ARMY INVASION STAR). It is my hope that others at some point will get to experience part of AWA….through waterfowling….or gun dog training. I appreciate and thank the individuals and companies that lend their support.
