Annual Championship Duck Calling Contest and Wings Over the Prairie Festival" in Stuttgart, AR, has just concluded. I've been told that there was a great turnout on the number of callmaker booths. Many thanks, again, to Mike Lewis for "flying our banner" over his booth, and promoting our organization.
It's hard to believe that it's time to begin to focus on the NWTF event in Nashville in February! This is the 39th annual. If you've never been, you are missing a collosal event in which over 40,000 people gather over 3 days to see every gear company, gun manufacturer, celebrities, decoy guys, guiding services, and let's not forget a fantastic working class and decorative class callmaking contest sponsored by us! It's a great opportunity to learn, have fun and be entertained. See the banner here on our homepage, or go to http://www.nwtf.org/special_events/convention.html
for more info.
Also, you should've received your annual dues notice by now. Please be sure to renew right away so you don't risk missing our next (new and improved) full color newsletter issue. You won't be disappointed.
In closing, hunting seasons are under way all across the country. Many of you have already made some wonderful memories on your favorite marsh, beaver pond, deer stand, ground blind or big water. Be safe, keep the tradition alive and don't stop going back into nature!
All the best,
