The 2017 NWTF contest had some phenomenal calls entered into it again this year. Brad Samples won the Best of Show in the decorative duck call division, with his entry themed "Barely Legal." Brad's calls are always top notch, and his carved calls are always in high demand. Congrats Brad on winning the 2017 Nationals, and the 2017 Champion of Champions awards!
The NWTF Grand National call making competition in Nashville at the Opryland hotel just concluded. What a phenomenal display of creative and artistic talent in the call making world all at one location! It is always an impressive turnout for call makers and call collectors alike. Always a lot of smiles and great comradery to be seen in Nashville. Attendance for that show always seems to be increasing, as well as the level of craftsmanship of the call makers. Congrats to Dave Constantine, Brad Samples, and Mike Stelzner for being the 2017 Grand National Champions in the Decorative Turkey, Decorative Duck, & Hunting Duck/Goose divisions.
