Went up this weekend to the Reelfoot Lake Waterfowl festival. Got to see a lot of the old call makers and a lot of the new call makers and hang out with them.

Also they had another Hunting/working call contest. They had divisions for Reelfoot style metal reed calls, natural wood calls, acrylic calls and an Open division. This contest has one person blowing all the calls in one division for a group of 5 judges. They then score judge the call all based on sound quality.

I entered a natural wood call and also a call in the open division. The wood call was a bocote Original open water and the open call was a stablizied box elder burl with a micarta insert Original open water. I didn't enter an acrylic becasue I blew those calls for that division.

Well, wound up taking 1st place in the open division and then all the 1st place calls were reblown and it came out Best in Show!! So now I've placed 1st in every division except metal reed (which I don't make) and have won Best in Show with a wood call in 2007!

I was pretty excited so I thought I would share this with you all since you all have supported me so much these last 5 years!

Thanks for all of your support with my call making!!

Man you got to come up. Get to meet a lot of folks on CCO, the old call makers you've always heard about plus we hang out late with about 10 call makers and cook out etc.

Heck I met E.L. Quinn this year!

Plan on it next year for sure

Careful with all this success, Brian. You get too famous, and you'll have to quit your day job.

Hey congrats! Just today I was up at backwoods landing to possibly purchase my "spare/arkansas" boat and talked to them about some calls. They are now selling the duck commander line and said they had met you and heard good things about your calls and would be interested in you stocking some there. Might be nice to have a place centrally located that would peddel them for you. Ought to give them a call if you are interested....
