Chris Williams of Princeton is the N.C. Wildlife Federation's Sportsman of the Year.
The N.C. Wildlife Federation has named its 2021 Sportsman of the Year. He is Chris Williams of Princeton.
A North Carolina native, Williams fell in love with waterfowl hunting on the coast early in life, and it’s a passion that continues today, the Wildlife Federation said in a news release.
For more than 20 years, Williams was an Atlantic Flyway regional director for Delta Waterfowl, a nonprofit whose mision is to foster waterfowl and waterfowl hunting in the United States and Canada. The Atlantic Flyway is a major north-south route for migratory birds in North America.
“Williams now serves on the front lines of policy and advocacy for waterfowl hunters and wetlands conservation,” the N.C. Wildlife Federation release states. “He’s built the North Carolina chapter of Delta into an influential voice for duck hunters, and his flyway-wide understanding of both the biology and politics of waterfowl hunting is a significant benefit to his home state.”
