Townsend Ducks Unlimited Banquet
Jesse Swenson
Montana Duck’s Unlimited
The Upper Missouri River (Townsend) Ducks Unlimited Annual Banquet is coming up on Saturday, November 4th, at Watson’s Gym.

Fundraising banquets such as these preserve and create wetlands that will help ensure that waterfowl will have places to nest, raise their young, migrate through and winter in each year. Your attendance at the Townsend banquet will help DU conserve wetlands and critical upland habitat vital to North America’s waterfowl and the more than 900 other species of wildlife that use these same habitats. DU has conserved more than 16 million acres of waterfowl habitat in North America, more than any other conservation organization in existence, including restoring, enhancing, and protecting 501,369 acres within Montana. While DU’s #1 priority is waterfowl, more than 900 wildlife species benefit from our conservation work. During Fiscal Year 2022 (FY22), DU protected and restored more than 575,000 acres of wetlands and other wildlife habitats across the United States alone.

There will be many raffles, drawings, and door prizes for the adults and the kids (Green Wings). Prizes include a Benelli 28 ga., Christensen Arms .308, Springfield Garrison 1911 .45 ACP, Weatherby Element Tungsten, Ruger 10-22 .22LR Rifle, Mossberg 6.5 Creedmoor, Henry Goldenboy .22; Two Springfield Pistols, Four Escort 12 guages, a Traditions Buckstalker 50 cal. Muzzleloader, Artwork, Decoys and many more items for raffle, silent auction, and live auction. Doors open at 5:00 pm with raffles, games, and drinks catered by the Commercial Bar, dinner catered by the Watson’s of Prime Rib at 6:30pm, and the Live Auction will start at 7:30pm.
