From hobbyist to vendor at the NRA Great American Hunting & Outdoor Show, Gobbler Getter gets it done
Frederick, Maryland - Now in its fourth year, the NRA Great American Hunting & Outdoor Show has a lot of familiar vendors who are veterans of the show. But the expo is always growing. Year after year we see plenty of new faces — like Rick from Gobbler Getter Turkey Calls.
Based out of Enola, Pennsylvania, Rick Harro started selling turkey calls about seven and a half years ago. As a lifelong hunter, and an avid woodworker, Rick found a way to combine his two passions ... making calls for as long as he can remember.
"As a wood fanatic, I don't let any wood go to waste," Harro chuckled. "I started making box calls when I first got into it and just branched out from there."
Pretty soon Rick was getting requests from friends and family. That gave him an idea. "My calls turned out pretty good and the customers really liked them," he said. "So now I do it for a living."
Pretty sweet deal.
After personally picking his wooden canvas, Harry returns to the shop and makes each of his turkey calls by hand. What else would you expect from a self-proclaimed wood fanatic?
"I used to test my calls on a website, matching them to recordings of real turkeys," Harro explained. "But now I'm to the point where I can turn a call and know if it's good."
"That's how I wake up in the morning," his wife joked. "It's my turkey call alarm clock."
Harro stands by his calls. He knows they work. Even though it started out as a hobby, they are exactly what he uses when he's hunting turkey. And he doesn't come back empty handed.
"'I don't go in the woods without that zebra wood call right there," Harro said, pointing to a call on the table. "It's my favorite."
From friction turkey calls, to box turkey calls, Harro guarantees you’ll find the sound you’re looking for to bring in the biggest gobblers. He's so sure you'll like your call that he has a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. Don't like it? He'll give you your money back.
Again, pretty sweet deal.
So if you plan on hunting turkeys in the near future, stop by and see Gobble Getter Turkey Calls this weekend at the NRA Great American Hunting & Outdoor Show in Frederick, Maryland. Rick will be there will the perfect call in hand.
