Homejpg Waterfowl hunters have something new at their fingertips to assist with their sport, be it in the blind or in the kitchen, thanks to the new Ducks Unlimited official application for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

The app includes a list of the most popular North American waterfowl species, including photos, audio sounds, descriptions, breeding, migration, populations and food habits.

It also offers more than 300 videos in various categories, including duck-hunting tips, dog training, conservation and wild-game cooking.

"The DU iPhone app is a valuable tool for waterfowl hunters," said Anthony Jones, Web director for Ducks Unlimited. "We’re really excited about the benefits it will offer subscribers."

The app also allows Ducks Unlimited members to browse a state-by-state listing of all of the organization's events across the country and provides a link for event details and contact information.

"With the ever-expanding mobile-smart-phone market, Ducks Unlimited has a unique opportunity to leverage this channel as a new way to communicate and engage with the waterfowl hunting community," added Jones. "It also provides a way for our members -- and thousands of potential members -- to stay connected with the organization."

The application can be purchased through iTunes for $1.99, and proceeds from sales will help fund Ducks Unlimited’s mission to conserve, restore and manage wetlands and associated habitats for North America's waterfowl.
