About Us

I was born in a small house located on the banks at the marshy headwaters of the Corsica River in Centreville, Maryland. I have spent virtually my entire life at work and play in the outdoors. In my youth , you could find me busy trapping muskrats, hunting squirrels and crabbing with my father. We also loved to search for Indian Arrowheads in local fields. As a teenager I was a master barber, but since that can’t be done in the outdoors, I traded in my scissors for a gun and goose call and became a guide of goose hunting parties for a local waterfowl outfit.

Starting in my 20’s and then for the next 25 years, I owned and operated my own guide service—Geese Unlimited. Later I became a certified shooting instructor, and owned and operated several Sporting Clay ranges both in Maryland and South Carolina where I lived for several years.

 Eventually I discovered the magnificent Wild Turkey and how to make calls to hunt them with. I formed my Close Calls game call Co. in 1989. Long recognized as a pioneer in Limited Edition and hand painted custom calls, I now turn my talents to also writing about my great adventures in the outdoors. I wrote my first book “ One Man’s Close Calls" in the fall of 2007. Ihope to be publishing a sequel to it in the fall of 2009.  I continue to strive to make some of finest looking and sounding turkey calls for your turkey woods.

 Happy Hunting
