Call Maker - Ben Shook
Name: Ben Shook
City: Iron Station
State: North Carolina
Company Name: Catawba River Calls
I began making calls in the fall of 2016, mostly out of curiosity, and a way to extend my season. I began my journey by making whistles, which is still my main call produced. I managed to take 1st, 4th, and 5th place in the whistle division at the NWTF Grand National event in February 2018. Since the beginning of that year, I have expanded my line up to j frame style duck calls, turkey pots calls, goose calls, and deer grunts. I would not be where i am now if it wasn't for the support and encouragement of my wonderful family, great friends, and other call makers, who through this venture I have met through social media and face to face, all of which I consider great friends.
