CCAA May 2017 featured call of the month - Ron Gould
« on: May 01, 2017, 08:16:23 PM »


The CCAA Fancy Call Contest just concluded, and what a perfect time to feature the Best of Show call as the call of the month.  This year, Ron Gould's open division call won the Best of Show award.  Ron is no stranger to this position, as it is his 3rd Best of Show award in 4 years.  This years call features checkering, laminations, carving, and scrimshaw.  It's an amazing piece of art and a wonderful example of a finely crafted duck call.  Congrats Ron on your Best of Show and being featured as the May call of the month!
