Turkey Calling Contest
MeatEater Turkey Calling Contest: Janis vs. Clay

Folks, we’re not cluckin’ around. It’s the first-ever MeatEater Turkey Calling Contest. Crew members will be facing off head-to-head to see who is the best turkey-talker of the bunch. There will be three categories of calling throughout the contest: best turkey call sequence, crow call and owl hoot, and turkey gobble—and you get to pick who wins.

The winner of the contest will get to donate $1,000 to the National Wild Turkey Federation in their name. Watch the videos and cast your vote below to select who you think should make it to the next round. Don’t delay—voting will only be open for 24 hours!

We’ll also be giving away a Work Sharp Turkey Week Exclusive Knife Sharpener and a special edition Golden Professional Precision Adjust Sharpener every day this week! To enter to win, tell us what you think of our calling in the comment section.

It's round two of the contest and we're on to locator calls. In this round we have Janis Putelis versus Clay Newcomb. Clay won the last round by the skin of his mule's teeth, can he pull it off again? It's up to you! The winner will move onto the final round to face off against Mark Kenyon, who won the last round by only 60 votes!

(Note: votes will not be counted in the comment section, so please use the voting box below to vote for your favorite caller. Likewise, only voting won’t enter you for a chance to win a sharpener, so make sure you leave a comment!)

SORRY FOLKS! We had issues with our polling software AGAIN. When the polling stopped, Clay had 957 votes and Janis had 43. We'll add these numbers to the final tally. Appologies again for the inconvenience.
