Call makers gathering in October, at Reelfoot lake
« on: April 29, 2014, 09:44:35 PM »
October is a few months away yet, but mark you calendars for October 10th & 11th.  For you guys that haven't ever been, it is a fun, relaxed atmosphere along the shoreline of the famous Reelfoot lake.  All weekend talking about and blowing duck calls with fellow call makers.  There is also a working call contest on Saturday morning, where a call operator runs all of the calls in the division, and judges score the calls based purely on the sound.  There's also booth space set up if you would like to set out a few calls for sale too.  Saturday afternoon, there are some call making seminars.  If you are struggling with duck call toneboards, this is a great opportunity to have some fellow call makers take a look at it and provide some feedback on it.

Here is the flyer for the event:

You won't get money rich in this hobby.  The richness is in the culture, the craft, the friends you meet along the way, and being able to call in a wary game animal with a call that you made with your own hands.

I know it will be deer season for me but I'm going for sure gonna take a vacation day for Friday. I miss all the BS from the last few years that I missed. It's a great time for our THO call makers to have another get together too so you all think about it that way.

My biggest fear is that I'll die and my wife will sell my callmaking supplies for what I told her they cost.....

Kitch, bring her along, just hand her the ATM card and she can go gambling with my wife........although it may be cheaper to just stay home.
