Our friends at Kittle’s Outdoor Sports in Colusa (530-458-4868) provided this release for this weekend’s big duck calling contest:

The 2015 California State Duck Calling Championship & Outdoor Expo will be in Colusa on August 29 and 30 at the 10th Street Veteran’s Memorial Park.
Kittle’s Outdoor Staff is proudly hosting this event for the fifth year in a row. “Each year we spend months preparing for this event, hoping to bring in new and exciting products, sales, events, and much more,” said Pat Kittle, owner of Kittle’s Outdoor & Sports.
He added that this is the perfect weekend plan for everyone in the family, from experienced hunters to young aspiring hunters. There will be two free seminars on Saturday and Sunday. Additionally, on Saturday morning after opening ceremonies, there will be a FREE Junior Duck Calling Workshop hosted by Three-time World-Champion Brad Allen and Junior World Champion Ryan Sherbondy.
This year, California Waterfowl Association will be joining the event in the park as their Regional Duck Calling Contest becomes part of the Colusa event. “
That means there are 2 contests that can get you your ticket to the World Contest in Stuttgart, Arkansas,” said Kittle. There are also multiple other CA state contests that are not World Qualifiers, but bring in a lot of competition!
