Andrew ONeill takes two awards in Duck and Goose calling

Postby 870 » Mon Jan 30, 2006 5:42 pm

Outstanding would be the word to describe what I saw at the North Eastern Sport show in Syracuse on sunday. I saw a young man who got up on stage in front of strangers, and blew his duck and goose calls like he was a seasoned pro. His name is Andrew O’Neill, and he’s a member of DHC.

When you first meet Andrew he’s unassuming, he doesn’t say a lot, he does his talking with his calls. From his hail call to his feeder, and every thing in between. He hit his notes with confidence. Against stiff competition he didn’t squeak out, showing intimidation.

Andrew had his own cheering section not only his Dad and family, but also some ya hoos he didn’t know. I felt that if we had one of our own from DHC competing some of us should be there. When Andrew went up to receive his award, it was said that he had a bright future as a caller. I know if we ever get hooked up on a hunt. I’m leaving my call to home.

Andrew took 2nd in Junior Duck, 2nd in Adult Goose. Not bad at all kido, not bad at all. Good luck in any upcoming events Your fan 870

Nice post 870!

Way to go Andrew! I've huinted with several kids, and it seems as if they take to the call as well as they do Play Station. In other words they smoke the adults quite often. When the average age of the American hunter is somewhere around 38 years old, it's very cool to see the kids taking up the sport. On top of that. You eventually outgrow the video games! :laughing:

Thanks for the comments guys, I almost didn't enter Adult Goose. :eek: I've kinda got the contest fever now. I'll be going to the Keystone Regional next Wednesday to try my luck in Jr. Duck and Goose and Adult Goose
