Hopefully, many of our members will attend the National Wild Turkey Federation show in Nashville, TN from February 13-17, 2019. It is quite an event with as many as 50,000 people attending the convention and show. Bernie and Sharon Forte will set up the CCAA booth near the call contest section. Their collection of Tennessee calls is quite impressive and not to be missed. The NWTF duck and goose calling contests are headed by longtime CCAA member Mark Warmath. Mark does an incredible job and the contests always draw outstanding entries. I can’t wait to see this year’s entries! The call auction following the completion of the contests also offers an opportunity to pick up any number of fantastic contemporary calls from a wide variety of the country’s most talented call makers. Hope to see you in Nashville!
Member John Stephens announced a new duck and goose call show with a number of contests, displays, workshops and all things related to call making. The show is called Callapalooza and is scheduled for March 4-10 in Stuttgart, Arkansas, the Rice and Duck Capital of the World. We will provide more updates and information as this new show draws near.
