"I'm a big fan of the outdoors – whether it is hiking, hunting, or mountain biking – and I firmly believe we have an obligation to be good stewards of our nation’s natural resources. That’s why I appreciate the work being done by Ducks Unlimited – because I share their commitment to conservation. It was an honor to attend the Ducks Unlimited gathering again this year and catch up with old friends who love the outdoors and all it has to offer,” said Ryan.
