Show off your turkey-talking skills during the 2012 World Championship Turkey Calling Contest and Mobile Boat Show to be held at the Mobile, Ala. Convention Center March 10-11, 2012. This National Wild Turkey Federation-managed event will consist of an Open Contest, Owl Hooting Contest, Friction and Junior Divisions.

This turkey calling contest was originated by the Mobile County Wildlife and Conservation Association, which was founded in 1934, making it the oldest conservation organization in Alabama.

“The founding and growth of the World Championship Turkey Calling Contest by Mobile County Wildlife and Conservation Association many years ago here in Mobile has allowed the sport of turkey hunting to make tremendous strides, both locally and nationally,” Marl Cummings, past president and board member for the conservation association, says.  “It is also the spark that started many well know names and brands on the road to fame and fortune, such as Ben Rogers Lee, Eddie Salter, Preston Pittman and many others.”
