    The Pointe Mouillee Waterfowl Festival and 69th Michigan Duck Hunter's Tournament will take place at the Pointe Mouillee State Game Land located in Brownstown, Michigan, on September 17 and 18.

    This is a non-profit Festival held to raise money to continue the on going, and never ended, rehabilitation of one of the largest fresh water estuaries in North America. There is no admission charge. We depend on income from the "Trading Post" and corporate sponsorships for our income.

    If anyone is interested in spaces at the Trading Post or in becoming a sponsor you can check it out at http://www.ptemouilleewaterfowlfestival.org at 734-384-3915 and leave a message. I will get back to you as soon as I can. You can also drop me an email at decoyslayer@yahoo.com.

    The Monroe Chapter of Ducks Unlimited, along with Michigan Ducks Unlimited is now taken over the duck calling contests. I will be posting more on that soon. We have two qualifying spots for the Stuttgart duck calling championships.

    Thank you for you interest and I look forward to hearing from you!

    I don't think I have missed one if these shows since I was a young man!!! Love the show we look forward to it every year. Started going to the BAy City show couple three years now and really enjoy that show as well. It's funny we ran into a bunch of hunters that we see at pte mouille during waterfowl season up there. We are sure lucky to have resources like these in our state heck I'm at pte mouille three times a week with our lab throwing dummies from the launch or she looks at you like what you not feeling well let's go!!! Thanks for the Head's up!!!!

    The applications for the "Trading Post" at the Pointe Mouillee Waterfowl Festival and 69th Michigan Duck Hunter's Tournament have gone out. If anyone was expecting to receive a packet, and did not. please drop me a PM here or an email to decoyslayer@yahoo.com.

    If there is anyone who would like a packet I will be happy to get you one out right away. It's a great place to sell hunting/fishing equipment that you are no longer using. If anyone is interested in sponsoring the Festival drop me a line.

    Anyone interested in working at the Pointe Mouillee Waterfowl Festival and 69th Michigan Duck Hunter's Tournament there is a meeting tonight, and every second Tuesday of the month, at 7PM (1900) It will be held at the headquarters building at Pointe Mouillee. (That is where the draw takes place for those who hunt the managed zones.)

    All are welcome. Just ask for Joe Marra (DecoySlayer) or introduce yourself to anyone who is there. We need all the help we can get. We REALLY need people who are young enough to do some of the heavy work.

    Have some used sporting goods to sell? A boat? A canoe? Maybe some old decoys? WELL! Now you have a place to sell them! A place where there will be as many as 10K people pass by over just two day?

    Buy a booth at the Pointe Mouillee Waterfowl Festival and 69th Michigan Duck Hunter’s Tournament, on September 16th and 17th. Our Trading Post spots are not expensive, only $30 for one day or $50 for both. Those who visit are looking to purchase what you have to sell.

    Check us out at www.ptemouilleewaterfowlfestival.org/.

    You can also drop me a PM here. I would be happy to get you set up with a booth!

    Here is a new event we are holding this year. Hoping to get new waterfowl hunters and old ones to share an afternoon before season begins. Great way to spend an afternoon listening to what opportunity is available in our state and what is going on with wetlands and waterfowl in Michigan. And admission is free.

    This event is a LOT of fun! If you can attend it would be well worth the time and money! There are some great chili cooks that show up and you will be in for a tasty, fun, evening! If you belong to a DU chapter be sure to get a team together, it is SO much fun!
