The Hautman Brothers

Environmental & Science Education, STEM, Nature, Wildlife, Biodiversity 

CBS Sunday Morning had a segment on three U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) duck stamp artists. They are siblings, and duck hunters and certainly many Minnesotan's will recognized their names. They grew up in Minneapolis. Each year one artist is chosen based on their submissions to the annual duck stamp contest. Here they are.

Jim Hautman--a record six times and the 2022 winner

Joe Hautman--five times

Robert Hautman--three time 

They are sometimes referred to as the "Duck Dynasty". And they also paint more than ducks.

Correspondent Conor Knighton reports (5m 19s).  The Wiki entry on the federal duck stamp includes a list of all Federal Duck Stamp artists. The program began in 1934.
