Hunting Pro Chad Belding

Hunting Pro Chad Belding

Belding, a Nevada native, discovered duck hunting in 1997, which quickly became his passion. “I was fascinated with calling waterfowl and really started practicing,” says Belding. “I called as many pros as I could to pick their brains…just trying to figure out the best way to communicate with ducks and geese.”

Practicing his calling with purpose eventually brought Belding to the top of his game on the call circuit. There he met and talked with duck hunters from all over the country, which gave him a better understanding about the gear waterfowlers require.

In 2008 Belding started his own marketing company, called Banded Productions, and the following year he began producing The Fowl Life, now in its eighth season. More shows followed and Banded Productions is currently involved in several hunting shows, including Dead Dog Walkin'. 

Belding, along with his brothers, Clint and Clay, diversified and expanded Banded Productions and with a knowledgeable staff of dedicated waterfowlers behind him Belding began Banded Nation, which now includes Banded Gear, Last Call Ringtones, Banded Hunts, Banded Retrievers, Banded University, Banded Fusion, Banded Calls, and Banded, a waterfowl-specific gear company that offers hunters 1,700 different products. 

“I think one word that sums up our success--passion,” Belding said. “Our passion is what has made us what we are in the waterfowl industry. We’re serious about it, and we’re good at it.”
