Information: November 30th, 2021

We are currently working on several big changes for the 2022 competition that we think will be well received by call makers, auction participants, and call collectors. Check back here at a later date for more updates on these changes.

We regret to inform everyone that Charley Burke has retired and is no longer running the show. We have added Bob Fulcher as a commisioner for the Hunting Turkey portion of the Grand Nationals to help out with the management of competition. While we hope Charley will consider offering a hand at the contest whenever he can, we will not try to take up too much of his hunting time. Charley was the one who started it all and was a key player in making this competition what it is today. Thank you so much for your efforts, your friendship, and your inspiration Charley.

Any judging or call placement questions having to do with Divisions 1 and 2 should be directed to Earl Duckett (ducknest1@gmail.com) and Bob Fulcher (fulcherbob@msn.com) moving forward.
