Ducks Unlimited recently welcomed Gator-Tail Outboards as the organization’s newest corporate partner, and announced plans for a 25-horsepower special DU edition motor scheduled to hit the market this spring.

The Loreauville-based company’s motors, made in the USA, are the original belt-driven, surface-drive mud motors, and are the only ones on the market with an instant reverse option.

"We're excited to work on this project with Gator-Tail", DU's Director of Corporate Relations Jeremy Smith said. "Mud motors are growing in popularity with waterfowl hunters, and DU is fortunate to have the opportunity to capitalize on this momentum with one of the biggest names in the industry."

The special edition motor will feature a blacked-out color, matte finish and Gator-Tail and DU decals, with a limited edition serial number stamped on a stainless steel plate resembling a waterfowl band on the side of the belt housing.

"Obtaining the DU license was very important as it allows us to make a significant impact on waterfowl conservation with the sale of each unit," Gator-Tail Outboards owner Kyle Broussard said. "Ducks Unlimited's membership and support base consists of avid sportsmen and waterfowlers who rely on quality gear and equipment in the field. Our products will certainly live up to their expectations."
