Famed Minnesota wildlife artists Joe, Robert, and James Hautman, have swept the 2016-2017 duck stamp art contest. Judging was done Saturday morning in West Virginia. Joe's winning image of a pair of Trumpeter Swans will appear on the stamp. Brother Robert took second place with a painting of flying Mallards. Brother James took third place with a painting also showing Mallards on the wing. The brothers have won more than 10 duck-stamp competitions, with several second- and third-place finishes. Never before, however, have they dominated the contest one-two-three.
