I dont really get anything out of it, and I go to a show or two when i can. I dont think im better then any other hunter because im on it and I dont go around bragging about being a prostaffer. I use all of their calls but so does my dad, uncle, and couple buddies. why? because they sounded good and fit my style, and had the best customer service at the first show i went too, im not a competition caller by no means and dont really plan on being one I did it one time and dont really care for it because i wont ever call a duck like that.
I actually went to the show to buy a foiles strait meat honker, cole and jeff and a pro staffer didnt help me with the call and acted like they could care less if i bought it or not and the staffer acted pizzed off because I tried a couple calls out. so I said screw that im gonna go look around. Told the Hayes guys about the experience and tested calls, liked em and he gave me a duck and goose call for the price of the SMH. I then stayed in touch through facebook and posted kills pics witht he calls and sent em in saying thanks etc. and got asked to be on the staff so I accepted thought it was pretty cool. But I dont have a black hoodie tho
