As mentioned in an earlier post, congratulations to Pa's Matt Van Cise for bringing home the NWTF Grand National Calling Title again this year. This was a very special year for Pa.as all tha age divisions that took top honors at the Grand Nationals are Pa Guys!! Polts Division: Cory Chamberlain from Claysburg (2nd time). Jr. Division: Hunter Wallis from Greenfield Twp.(3rd time).Intermediate Div: Mike Longnecker from Jersey Shore and Senior Div:Matt Van Cise from Brookville(4th time).I don't believe any state has ever had that distinction.I think this is proof positive that PA. Turkey hunters take it pretty serious and know how to get the job done! Job well done...I'am proud to be a Pa. turkey hunter!

My son and I enjoyed lookin all the calls over while we were in Nashville. Some very nice work. I'd hate to take some of them to the woods with me.

Man I'd like to talk turkey with this Mr. Lapp. He's right in my neck of the woods.
Go to his web page and get his contact info. Mike is a nice guy and makes pretty darn good calls too. Be prepared for he has a waiting list that is several years long.
