ANOKA, Minnesota - August 31, 2015 - Federal Premium® Ammunition has launched a nationwide sweepstakes in which one lucky person will win a two-day, three-night Kansas waterfowl hunt with Chad Belding, star of “The Fowl Life” outdoor television show, and special guest country music artist Drake White.
