James Hautman was recently described by Ducks Unlimited as the "Tiger Woods of wildlife artists." In 1989, at the age of 22, he became the youngest artist in history to win the prestigious Federal Duck Stamp Award. This win would be the first of three Federal Duck Stamp Honors. His second, in 1995, took first prize and set a new record by receiving a perfect judges score as well as the distinguished People's Choice Award. In 1998, Jim captured top honors for the third time receiving a perfect judges score once again. Jim is only the second artist in Competition history to win three times.
