A northern pintail, painted by David Chapman of Minnetonka, will be featured on the 2013 Minnesota Migratory Waterfowl Stamp. Chapman’s winning design for the state duck stamp was chosen from among 18 entries in the stamp contest sponsored by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. He won the 2005 Minnesota Duck Stamp contest with his painting of a white-winged scoter.
The $7.50 Duck Stamp is required of all Minnesota waterfowl hunters ages 18 through 64. Stamp sales generate about $700,000 per year for waterfowl habitat enhancement projects on state wildlife management areas and shallow lakes.
