About the Grand Nationals

The Worlds Largest Callmaking Contest

The contest started years ago by Charley Burke (A regional director at the time) as a way to showcase the callmakers who are the spirit of the organization. It started with just a few categories and as a carving contest. Over the years it has evolved into the largest callmaking contest of its kind in the World. Come check it out in person this year in Nashville, TN.

  • 1000 - 1200 Calls compete here every February
  • 5 different and unique divisions (Including the new wildlife art division) offer a wide range of different types of hunting and decorative pieces
  • Every piece entered in this contest has a portion of the sales donated to the National Wild Turkey Federation and helps support the Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt.™ Initiative.
  • Auctions take place after the competition has its winners designated. You must have an account in order to participate in the bidding.
