1Up Game Calls


Here is a picture of me with a gobbler I shot down in Chautauqua, NY.. This gobbler gave me a great hunt. He gobbled over 100 times He was well over 100 yards from me gobbling and strutting back and forth and just wouldn't come any closer. This gobbler was hearing (me) a hen and wanted the hen to go to him.

So I got up and started walking away yelping, and clucking as I walked away. He went crazy and sure enough here he comes. I ran back to my setup and got ready. I catch movement to my left. He's in strut and all I can see are the tips of his tail feathers up and purring on 1UP Game Call Chuck's Killer "V"4 my mouth call he exposed himself and Chuck's Killer "V"4 "Put'em On The Wall".

Elite Pro Staff Member Johnny Nanney

Growing up in rural West Tennessee, hunting and fishing was a way of life. I started chasing turkeys during my college years when populations were rebounding and it quickly became a full time passion. Since taking over our family business five years ago -- and thanks to a very forgiving wife -- I am now able to spend most of my spring mornings chasing turkeys either in my home state of Tennessee, in Nebraska where I hunt and guide, or in any other state I have a chance to visit. No matter where I find myself hunting I always need quality turkey calls to get the most out of my hunts, and there are none better than 1UP Game Calls.

My name is Adam Nelson, and I'm 24 years old from Milan, TN (pronounced "mylan" here in TN).
I grew up duck and deer hunting with my dad in North West Tennessee. I was introduced to turkey hunting when I was 14 years old, and I've been addicted ever since.
I currently live in Memphis, TN where I attend law school, but every chance I get, I escape to the woods to chase turkeys, ducks, and deer. I'm proud to be a part of the 1UP game calls team.

1UP Game Calls would like to intro our newest Elite Pro Staff Member Erich Higgins. He's from Buffalo Missouri and grew up south west Missouri in a little town called Billings. After high school he enlisted in the United States Air Force. Serving six years in the Military stationed at Tyndall AFB FL, serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom. He then left the Military to take a firefighting job in Iraq as a civilian in Baghdad for sixteen months. After Iraq he returned home to Missouri and took the job as fire chief for the City of Buffalo.
He began hunting at an early age with my PaPa. "We use to hunt squirrels every chance we got" he said. Erich went on to say "Although I love to hunt and fish, Turkey hunting is my passion. My PaPa and Step Dad taught me how to shoot and to hunt deer. But I am a self taught turkey hunter I harvested my first turkey when I was 16 years old. I was able to take myself to the woods and that year turkey season was approaching and I felt that I should try and hunt turkey, and well I accomplished what I had been told and believed to be a hard task. I have hunted turkey in three different states Missouri, South Dakota, and Kansas. I am one bird away from my grand slam and although I lived in Florida for 6 years I never had the chance to hunt the Osceola. I plan to head back to Florida in spring of 2014. Turkey hunting is me. Put them Wattles in the Dirt"!

Welcome again Erich and Thank You for your service defending our Country.

Hello… I would like to introduce myself, my name is Brian Sniatecki, I'm originally from Medina, NY, I currently reside in Monroe NC, with my wife and three daughters.
I own Tru Illusion Wildlife Studio in Monroe, NC. I use to lived in Medina, New York, went to school with Tony Tiranno and his Dad Chuck taught me many calling techniques back when I was in my teen years.

My father got me hooked on hunting at a young age and to this day my passion is to hunt. I’m an avid hunter of many game animals and feel that turkey hunting is one of the more difficult games to hunt. Keen eyesight, sensitive hearing, and unpredictable minds makes hunting turkey a real challenge.

I heard and read about 1UP Game Calls and the moment I tried a few of these calls by 1UP Game Call I knew right then and there these calls are deadly. These custom made calls produced a phenomenal natural sound. I am honored to be a part of the 1UP Game Calls Team.
