BANDED was formed by a group of avid outdoorsmen, innovators, and product designers that joined forces after years of working in the outdoor industry. After countless hours of brainstorming and discussing product designs, we decided to make a run at it. Our quest to produce better products led us around the globe in search of the finest materials and engineering processes. Through new-aged technology, extensive materials testing, and precise manufacturing, BANDED was born. Ideas that were once drawn on the tailgate of a pick-up eventually evolved into finished products. Design themes of traditional military bags, tools, and clothing were incorporated into inventive stylish designs. And, we put great emphasis on eliminating, where possible, plastic hardware. You'll quickly notice our common use of metal buckles, grommets, rivets, and other components.
BANDED currently offers over a thousand items representing nineteen diverse product categories. Some of the product categories you can expect to see include: outerwear, waders, boots, hunting accessories, blinds, and calls. We can assure you that we'll do our best to provide new, innovative, and functional gear for the outdoors. Our gear is tough. Our gear is "sharp". And, our gear works.

Delta Waterfowl would like to thank longtime corporate sponsor Budweiser for its continued support of waterfowl conservation and ethical hunting.
Budweiser sponsors Delta's "Look for the Drakes" Campaign, which uses posters and other communications materials to spread the drakes-only message to waterfowl hunters.
"Budweiser continues to be our anchor sponsor of voluntary restraint and its message of promoting ethical waterfowl hunting, and we couldn't be happier about it," said Delta Vice President of U.S. Policy John Devney.
In addition, Budweiser is also helping fund conservation through its Help Budweiser Conserve the Outdoors program, which has raised nearly $9 million in more than a decade.
As part of the program, participating Anheuser-Busch wholesalers will donate a portion of each Budweiser sale (cans or bottles) made in September and October to the company's corporate conservation partners, including Delta Waterfowl.
The grant money will be used to fund important wildlife habitat projects.
Cabela's, the World's Foremost Outfitter of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, was born somewhat inadvertently in 1961 when Dick Cabela came up with a plan to sell fishing flies he purchased while at a furniture show in Chicago. Upon returning home to Chappell, Nebraska, Dick ran a classified ad in the Casper, Wyoming, newspaper reading: "12 hand-tied flies for $1." It generated one response. Undaunted, Dick formulated a new plan, rewriting the ad to read "FREE Introductory offer! 5 hand tied Flies….25c Postage….Handling" and placing it in national outdoor magazines. It didn't take long for the orders to begin arriving from sportsmen and women around the country. In the interim Cabelas growth has been legendary and they have been a proud supporter of many conservation organizations. Delta Waterfowl is happy to welcome Cabela’s as a Conservation Partner.
“Cabela's is proud to sponsor Delta Waterfowl and their invaluable efforts to enhance duck production, advocate hunting and continue their world renowned research programs. Cabela's is making contributions towards these Delta projects. It's part of our commitment to preserving our hunting traditions and to the millions of fellow hunters we serve.”

Federal Premium® Ammunition
Federal Premium® Ammunition began building shotshells in 1922, an era generally agreed was a low point in wildlife conservation. Much of America was being plowed up, and waterfowl habitat was being destroyed at record rates. Company leaders from the very beginning realized that if Federal Ammunition was to be successful, America had to have healthy wildlife populations or our customer base would go away. In the 1930’s Federal started Conservation Camps with 4H, supported passage of the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Conservation Act, and advertised with cartoons preaching a conservation ethic.
That commitment to wildlife conservation is still core to Federal’s business philosophy as is our commitment to innovation to provide the most effective product hunters and target shooters can buy. BLACKCLOUD ® shotshells are an example of that innovation, featuring game changing technology in the FLITECONTROL ® wad, and FLITESTOPPER ® pellets that increase lethality, and reduce wounding loss. After all, clean kills makes for good conservation. Look for the Delta Waterfowl logo proudly displayed on our Speed-Shok ® waterfowl loads. We display that logo because we believe that Delta has the vision and the courage to sustain waterfowl and waterfowl hunters, and we think all our customers should be members.

SportingDogAdventuresSportingDog Adventures is truly a show for the dogs! Now in its third season, every show takes viewers on an outdoor journey featuring the skills of talented K-9 athletes. Reaching 129.5 million households in two countries, on four networks, SportingDog Adventures is proud to differentiate itself from other hunting shows, in that we offer so much more, to a much broader audience.
SportingDog Adventures showcases some of the finest opportunities available stateside in upland, waterfowl, and big game hunting. But our appeal goes so much further than those who enjoy the fast-action hunts. We remain committed to providing family-oriented entertainment, and that means segments for men and women, adults and kids, and even non-hunters. Our shows include youth segments, designed to inspire adults to pass on their love of the outdoors. Special “featurettes” include segments dealing with canine health, training tips for a variety of breeds, and cooking segments demonstrating wild game recipes. Few outdoors shows can truly fit the bill of “something for everyone,” but we honestly feel that we do.

The waterfowl industry was forever changed in 1972 when Tanglefree's founders had the ingenuity to invent a decoy line and anchor method that would not rot, float, flare ducks and could quickly retrieve decoys without tangling. For over 40 years, companies have attempted to copy our original decoy line with unparalleled standards while Tanglefree expanded into the waterfowl industry with new products.
No longer just a decoy line and weight company, Tanglefree recently introduced a modern version of the original company logo to symbolize our relentless growth of high quality decoys and gear while never forgetting the importance to develop innovative products. Tanglefree offers hundreds of pro-staff designed waterfowl accessories and gear in addition to over 80 decoy varieties of geese, puddle ducks, diver ducks, sea ducks and specialty bird species. Please look for Tanglefree waterfowl decoys and gear at your next Delta Waterfowl event.
