“It’s been an incredible experience working to turn Chêne Gear from a dream into a reality these past few years, and we couldn’t have done it without our amazing customers. Chêne Underground isn’t just a loyalty program to give back to our supporters, it’s a community for anyone who cares about duck hunting, conservation and the lifestyle as much as we do to be an even bigger part of our brand,” says Jeff Jones, co-founder and chief product officer for Chêne Gear.
