The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced the winners Saturday.

Hautman and his two brothers are no strangers to winning the contest. The three have 10 combined victories between them.

Waterfowl hunters age 16 and older are required to buy the $15 duck stamp. The money is used for conservation efforts.
