About the N.C. Waterfowl Conservation Stamp and Print Program
The N.C. Waterfowl Conservation Stamp and Print program, established in 1983 by the Commission, generates revenue for waterfowl conservation in the state, including acquiring and improving habitat. Proceeds from the sale of stamps and prints are designated for the Commission’s Waterfowl Fund.
The money is used to help North Carolina meet its financial obligations in implementing the North American Waterfowl Management Plan, the international agreement helping restore waterfowl populations throughout the continent. In addition, funds have been used to support waterfowl research and to buy equipment used to manage wetlands.
About the Artist – Scot Storm
Scot Storm discovered his talent for drawing, sketching and design at a young age. These skills eventually led him to North Dakota State University where he earned two degrees in architecture. While working in this field, the outdoors drew him to explore the challenges of wildlife art. Scot's interest in wildlife became such a passion, that in 1999, he decided to give up his career in architecture and devote himself full time to painting. Scot was then able to challenge himself in every aspect of his creations from composition to the effects of light, to the accuracy and psychology of color. His paintings of waterfowl, hunting dogs and other animals all reveal his attention to the fine details that breathe life into every image and draw the viewer into a scene. Scot has 25 Federal, State and Conservation Stamp wins including being a Two-time winner of the Federal Duck Stamp (2004 & 2019), three-time Ducks Unlimited’ s International Artist of the Year (2005, 2014 & 2016) and three-time Pheasants Forever’s National Artist of the Year (2010, 2014 & 2019).
