Waylon is quickly becoming well known for his talents in making decorative duck calls. He has accomplished a lot in a short amount of time. Waylon's calls have done quite well in competitions this year, both at the NWTF competition and the CCAA competition. Waylon has placed well in the Checkered division, Laminate division, Carved division, Miniature division, as well as winning the NWTF Amateur Hunting Duck and Goose Call Maker of the Year. Job well done Waylon and congratulations on being the October call of the month!
Fall hunting seasons are right around the corner. The excitement is in the air, in anticipation for what future hunts will bring. Good luck to everyone out there!
