Every year, the best turkey callers in the country head to the National Wild Turkey Federation Grand National turkey calling contest to showcase their skills.
To qualify for the Grand National competition, callers must place first in a NWTF-sanctioned calling contest.
Here are the best turkey callers giving it their best to mimic gobblers.
Calling categories include owl hooting, gobbling, and friction. The junior division is open to callers 15 and younger, and the intermediate division is for callers 16-20 years old. As you can see in the video, everyone at the Grand National turkey calling championship has a good time.
You don't have to be a Grand National calling champion to hunt turkeys, but the ability to call like these guys and gals is a huge advantage. Good calling skills, combined with sound judgement on when to call and when to remain quiet, are the most important skills a turkey hunter can take to the field.
