Bill Lowen - A True Outdoorsman

I am a big fan of Bill Lowen, he is a great guy and a true outdoorsman.  He fishes of course, but also stays true to his hunting as well.  His boat and jersey are wrapped in Feather Flage, he endorses Buck Knives and is doing great and crossing the two into each other.  I just saw a press release from him about a new limited edition duck call that is being sold to benefit Delta Waterfowl.  He also had a limited edition Buck Knife earlier this year that was awesome.

Middleton, OH – Flambeau Outdoors is partnering with 2011 Bassmaster Classic qualifier Bill Lowen to benefit Delta Waterfowl by offering a limited edition Bill Lowen duck call.  Ten percent of all sales will be donated directly to Delta Waterfowl.

“Delta Waterfowl is at the forefront of the waterfowl research and other efforts to increase waterfowl populations in North America.,” said Zack Rednour of Flambeau Outdoors.  “We are very excited to be working with Bill on this project and future promotions alongside his other sponsors to benefit both hunters and anglers.”

“The disastrous effects of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico hit very close to home for me,” said Lowen.  “The 2011 Bassmaster Classic in New Orleans is right around the corner and so is duck season.  Sometimes we take the ability to enjoy the outdoors for granted.  I want to do all I can to raise awareness of Delta Waterfowl‘s efforts and this promotion is the best way I know how.”
The limited edition Flambeau piece is a Big River sweet cherry wood call signed, individually numbered, hand-tuned by Lowen himself and engraved with “A bad day hunting is better than a good day at work.”  Fans may recognize the engraving is similar to the Bill Lowen limited edition Buck Knife offered this past spring.  Those knives sold out in just 2 days.

Lowen is joined in this endeavor by Louisiana-based Feather ‘Flage “Ducks in a Row” camouflage and Buck Knives.  “We are honored to be part of this effort and cannot thank Bill enough for his sincere concern for those of us who call Louisiana home,” said Dannon Stokes, President of Feather ‘Flage.  “We are proud to work with Bill Lowen and Delta Waterfowl on such a worthy cause,” said Bob George, National Sales and Marketing Manager of Buck Knives.  "Delta Waterfowl is one of our key conservation partners and we know that Bill's efforts will reward an area that is in much need of support like this".

“We appreciate Bill and his sponsors doing their part to raise both awareness and funding for our organization.  Efforts like this go a long way to ensure we will pass on strong populations of ducks and a rich waterfowling culture to the next generation”, said Pat Hudak of Delta Waterfowl.
The limited edition will consist of 500 calls.  Only 25 of the calls will bear the Feather ‘Flage “Ducks in a Row” pattern.  One lucky buyer chosen at random will receive a sold out Bill Lowen limited edition Buck Knife and their choice of either a duck hunt or fishing trip with Lowen.

The calls retail for $35.99 and are available for purchase at www.ZonkShop.com, an online retailer based in Cleves, OH and through www.BillLowen.com.  A line of Bill Lowen apparel is also available online.
