What’s good for the moose is good for the gander.
The proceeds of this year’s Ducks Unlimited moose auction will contribute $37,000 for Montana’s moose habitat conservation initiative, which also benefits ducks and other wildlife, minus 10 percent that goes to DU.
The winning bid was the second highest since Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks began allowing organizations, like DU, to host the auctions.
The Helena DU chapter hosts the event as a draw to its yearly fundraising dinner. Montana Ducks Unlimited is reimbursed for auction advertising expenses.
Since 1984, DU has conserved almost 259,000 acres in Montana, the nation’s third largest waterfowl producer. Ducks Unlimited has invested almost $28 million in this conservation work guided by six Montana staff members.
