Game Fair Turkey Calling Contest

Coming off my second place finish at the 2014 Iowa State Turkey Calling Championship last weekend, it’s on to 2014 Game Fair Turkey Calling Contest in Anoka, MN. The Game Fair in it’s self is the largest show of it’s kind. They have a little of everything at this show. As for contests, they have 3D archery, duck and goose calling and yes the fore mentioned turkey calling contest. Get more info on the Game Fair at: http://www.gamefair.com/

A few of the judges for this year’s sanctioned event include: Brian Lovett (Turkey & Turkey Hunting magazine), Eric Rice (National Champion Call Maker), Neal Herrman (Champion Turkey Caller) and Shane Simpson (Champion Turkey Caller).
