The Producers of the Award-Winning Heartland Bowhunter present, Heartland Waterfowl! Executive Producers Michael Hunsucker and Shawn Luchtel have teamed with passionate Midwest waterfowl hunters Ronnie Philips and Logan Burditt, who have pieced a quality team that have enthralled themselves with the HB concept. This successful concept offers a waterfowl show unlike any other in the industry. Like HB, Team HW tells a compelling story though creative filming and honest experiences, while incorporating and promoting the true ethics of waterfowl hunting and endorsing the sport to women, children and those less fortunate. As Heartland Bowhunter has strived to be one of the most watched outdoor television programs available, it is of the same mindset that Heartland Waterfowl incorporate professional production guidelines and expectations to motivate this team to be the very best in the industry!
Heartland Waterfowl isn't about big piles, calling championships or perfect hunts. It's about a humble group of guys who take pride in sharing a sincere and genuine experience - telling that story creatively through the lens of the camera. In 2016, the late migration was tough on all waterfowl hunters. Some had it worse than others and some hardly had a season. Chasing the migration from Canada down to Texas, we experienced some of our best hunts to date, as well as our share of struggles. Hope at the end of the season, our story is relatable to yours.
Team HW returns to Upstate New York in September to chase early season honkers. The team always enjoys this trip to reunite with some close friends and treat young Austin Sullivan to some good hunting.
HW team member, Joe Palumbo and V Land & Holding owner, Dave Simon host the guys in west Texas in early January. The plan is to chase Sandhill Cranes and Wild Blue Quail but below freezing temperatures offer the guys a bonus pintail shoot over frozen water.
Team HW finishes up the season with several dynamite hunts at their favorite local spot. This feed field always delivers great hunting as it’s perfectly located close to several small lakes that roost a lot of birds.
