Chad Poole Wins State Duck-Calling Title

Chad Poole, of Soperton, used a Buck Gardner Kryptonite call and plenty of wind to earn the title of Georgia’s 2009 State Duck Calling Champion. Chad faced tough competition to claim the title in this year’s event, which was held in Macon at the Outdoor Blast on Aug. 7. Placing an extremely close second was last year’s champ, Clint Shipman, of Byron. Also calling and scoring well were Michael Whittle, of Snellville, and Chris Russell, of Mt. Airy.

In addition to state-champ honors, Chad earned a ticket to Stuttgart, Ark. to call in the prestigious World’s Championship Duck Calling Contest.

Two other state titles were up for grabs in Macon. Clint Shipman won the Georgia State Meat Duck Calling Championship, while Florida’s Zach Roulie and Kevin Gilreath, went home with the GON Two-Man Team Hunter championship.
