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!
In 5 years of producing the Award-Winning Heartland Waterfowl on Outdoor Channel, Season 5 is our BEST! The 2017-18 waterfowl season provided consistent success with many memorable and funny moments. Team HW begins the year with early season honkers in North Dakota and New York before heading north to Saskatchewan to chase massive feeds of snow geese. From there, the Team follows the entire waterfowl migration south through the Central Flyway. Several banded birds were harvested this season, included a rare tarsal band in North Dakota. The guys even set up on Sandhill Cranes in West Texas and even mix in some quail hunting and fishing throughout the season.
