I was out of town Friday afternoon when the announcement was made, but the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has chosen Minnesota artist Joseph Hautman’s image of a pair of Northern pintails to be the 75th anniversary Federal Duck Stamp.
Joseph Hautman’s image depicts a male and female
pintail nestled among reeds and cattails.
The Plymouth, Minn., resident was also the winner in 1992 and 2002. Waterfowl painting must run in the family, since his brothers, Bob and Jim,
also are multiple federal duck
