Early Teal season opened this past weekend and my son Hunter and my oldest daughter Lindsye found ourselves enjoying the Kansas sunrise near a small marsh wast of Hutchinson. We were the guest of the gents at Central Kansas Outfitters, www.centralkansasoutfitters.co The teal were flying fast and furious, Hunter had his first duck on the water right at legal shooting time, This was Hunters first duck hunt where he was allowed to shoot, Teal with a 20 gauge is no easy task, The boy had his limit in 20 minutes, I was one proud dad lemme tell ya. Jim and the guys at CKO did a great job of setting up and marking all of the downed birds. This was a hunt that we will not forget, Lindsye was toting a camera instead of a gun this hunt and got some awesome pics, You will be able to see some of them on the CKO web site. If your looking at hunting in Kansas give these guys a call, You will find none better to help you have that once in a lifetime Kansas Hunt, Have a great season folks, Kel
Man I have to tell you when Kent Cullum of Hobo Calls http://www.facebook.com/pages/Hobo-World-Championship-Duck-Calls/155870142005called me to tell me that he won the first Team RealDuck http://www.teamrealduck.com/contest that he had every competed in using one of my Woodie calls I was jazzed. The idea for the Woodie call came to me in one of those “Eureka Moments” while driving one day, I came home and proceeded to try my idea out and shazaaaam, It was a winner. I sent Kent one of my calls to use in the contest and the rest is history. Since his win I have had several requests for the calls, Not setting any sales records but that will come around I am sure. Check out the three Woodies in the pics on here, Yep, Thats Ivory not acrylic on that African Blackwood Woodie……………. Nice huh!!
Seems like the world is just ripping by and not even thinking about slowing down. I lost two friends recently that were a big part of my call making business and also members of my group of buddies that loved this sport as much as I do. Charlie Hess and Kevin Hampton, Both were men that enjoyed the great outdoors to its fullest and LOVED waterfowling like few others ever do. They loved good calls and great conversations, Charlie, Kevin, You will be missed my friends.
