Matt Gallup

My name is Matt Gallup and I currently live in Macomb, IL. I am 22 years old and have been duck and goose hunting since a very young age. My passion for waterfowl hunting started when my dad Ray took me out duck hunting in a flooded cornfield and I haven’t gotten rid of my obsession since. When season starts, I mainly hunt in the Macomb area but also travel north to the Sugar Grove, IL area as well. I am very big into bowhunting deer and every kind of fishing.
I met Mark at the Peoria Deer and Turkey Classic and learned all about Fowl Obsession. Hands down the best calls I have heard and used at a great price that can’t be beat. I look forward to the upcoming season and cant wait to use these calls in the field.

Tony Carey

I have been hunting for the past 55 years. I have had the pleasure of growing up and hunting in Grafton, Illinois with my father, grandfather, son and now my grandson. Waterfowl hunting is in my blood. I am honored to have been able to enjoy this sport for so many years and I truly enjoy spending the day in the blind with my son and grandson.

Team Fowl Obsession Pat Freeman

Pat Freeman

I have hunted ducks on Public Areas for the last 52 years. We have better decoys, better clothes and better equipment all around including the duck than years ago. The call of my choice for years was one modified to fit me but that changed when I blew a Fowl Obsession Call. This is the ONLY call that I get the tones, volume and anything I want out of it. This call will make the Drakes leave the hens and put them in your face. Don’t take my word for it. Try it for yourself.

Hal Stewart

My name is Hal Stewart, I'm 38 years old. I've been Waterfowl Hunting for about 28 years. My father, Hal, started my obsession with duck hunting the Mississippi River areas. He showed me how to hunt and shoot at a young age. I ENJOY ALL ASPECTS of the hunt from working on the blind, the many friends I have made, and teaching the younger kids how to hunt. I hunt 80 to 100 days a year. All the memories I've made makes it all worth it. I would like to thank: Mark Carey for making great sounding goose AND duck calls, and rest of my hunting buddies who brave the weather elements with me, and my wife Alisa for putting up with my hunting passion for the last 16 years.

Team Fowl Obsession Rhett Simpson

Rhett Simpson

My name is Rhett Simpson. I was born and raised on a farm in Randolph County IL. As a child my father took me hunting for deer and small game. My interest in Waterfowl began at the age of 12 when my cousin Mark took me Goose Hunting for the first time. I can remember that first hunt as if it were yesterday. At that moment I knew Waterfowl Hunting would be a big part of my life. I have been hunting Ducks and Geese for 17 years now and every season that passes my passion grows stronger. My first Goose Call was a modified OLT-A50. I blew a variety of Flute Calls for 8 years and then switched to a Short Reed. I've owned a Foiles, Grounds, Big Guy Keller, and many other calls and my Fowl Obsession Cranked Up call is my favorite. It's the easiest to blow, takes the least amount of air, and is the goosiest call I have ever blown. I enjoy a good hunt with a well trained retriever. I currently have two labs Ammo & Drake who enjoy fetching up the Geese we kill. I've had the opportunity to hunt with Mark Carey for the past two seasons. I enjoy listening to him call and it has led me to change my calling methods. God willing their will be many more productive seasons in the future. See you in the field.

Team Fowl Obsession Mark Wilson

Mark Wilson

My name is Mark Wilson.  My passion with Waterfowl started at the age of 12, when some good friends of mine, the late Ted Valentine and his son Ken, took me on a trip to his Goose Club in Reynoldsville, IL, near Union County Refuge.  From that moment on (35 years ago), I was hooked.  To be in the company of good friends, watching flights of Ducks and Geese work into the call, land in the decoys, and all of the excitement that goes with each hunt, is truly my obsession. I mainly hunt in Southwestern Illinois, along the Mississippi and Kaskaskia Rivers.  I started calling with an Olt A50.  Then years later, moved on to the modified Olt A50's, and learned a lot on creating the various sounds of the Canada Goose on Flute Calls.  I competed in 5 contests and placed in Top 5 on 3 occasions.  I met Mark Carey two years ago, and I can honestly say that this guy is the most down to earth person you will ever meet.  His obsession is helping others enjoy the sport of Duck and Goose Hunting.  His calls have the most realistic Goose and Duck tones than anything I have heard before.  I am proud and honored to represent Fowl Obsession Calls.  For all of those hunters and fishermen out there, make it a point to take someone new each year, especially a child, on hunting or fishing excursion.  Introduce them to what our natural resources have to offer and they will be rewarded with a lifetime of enjoyment in the outdoors.

Norby Schindler

My name is Norby Schindler. I started goose hunting with my dad on a small pond near my hometown of Jacksonville, IL. At only 10, I realized my obsession with goose hunting. I would spend hours practicing goose calling and thinking about waterfowl throughout junior high and high school. I was building, brushing, and hunting my own blinds at age 16. I have realized my hobby has become an obsession and I hunt every day of every goose season. My days revolve around goose hunting and scouting to see where my next limit will come from.

Brady Rau

My name is Brady Rau. I have been waterfowl hunting now for 15 years. I started out hunting local farm fields with friends. We then started a hunting club in Ware, Illinois and I hunted there for 10 years with great success. When I had my first child it was hard for me to travel that far to hunt. Mark Carey invited me to hunt with him at his place in Grafton, Illinois till I could find a spot closer to home. I found a farm field to lease in Southern Illinois and was given the opportunity to build and design my own waterfowl pit with Mark. I noticed while hunting with Mark that his calls sounded so much better than mine. That’s when he introduced me to Fowl Obsession calls. To this day I still blow Fowl Obsession calls. They are high quality and sound so natural. Mark and I still hunt together and we have had more success than ever.

I’ve been competition Goose Calling for several years and have had several top five finishes.

Fowl Obsession calls and our philosophy are among the best I have ever seen. NO FRILLS! Just a superior product at a superior price, offered and backed by excellent customer service.

Team Fowl Obsession - Craig Sondker

Craig Sondker


Hello my name is Craig Sondker of Grafton Illinois. As of 2011 I have hunted waterfowl for 42 years on the rivers and lakes of the Midwest from Wisconsin to Arkansas and Tennessee to Kansas. My style of preferred hunting has always been on public hunting areas where the power of a good call is the deciding factor on whether a bird is in hand or not. Never have I blown calls with so much duck and goose in them as the line of Fowl Obsession Calls. From the long hail calls on the open river to the soft chatter and short calls in the green timber no call have I ever blown better than the Belly Up. As for Mark and AJ (Gunner) I have hunted with and along side many people in the marsh and never have I seen more dedicated hunters than them. And it shows in the success of their blinds as well as the blinds hunting around them. Also in the dedication they put into making every call to perfection. It's an honor to have them as< friends in the marsh.
Good Luck and remember a safe hunt is always a good hunt!

My name is Jason Fulkerson, and I live in Bonnie, IL right next to
Rend Lake. I have mostly hunted the Rend Subs for 19 years. I enjoy all aspects of Waterfowling, but what I enjoy the most is watching the birds react to your call. I like the challenge of trying to fool 'em. Fowl Obsession Calls only make it that much easier. The Honker Havoc and Cranked Up goose calls are super easy to blow great goose sounds. Great goose sounds along with a very competitive price makes these calls a winner. Good Huntin and Stay Safe !

I am Will Smith from St. Paul MN; I am married with three kids. My father started taking me duck hunting when I was five years old, that’s when my obsession started. I have not missed a waterfowl opener with him since; and he is still my favorite hunting partner. My father has taught me how to hunt ducks, Canada geese and snow geese. When the season arrives you can find me in several states hunting ducks and geese, I start in Minnesota, go to North Dakota and usually end up in Kansas at the end of the season, hitting a couple other states along the way. The last two seasons I have been bringing my daughter & son with me, the youngest one is too young. I really enjoy showing and teaching my children about water fowling. My other interest includes anything with the family, archery hunting for deer and turkey, largemouth bass fishing, and ice fishing. I spend between sixty to eighty days a year hunting, with ninety percent of that time chasing ducks and geese! My favorite fowl to hunt is Canada geese

My interest for waterfowl hunting turned into an obsession after my friend took me on a flooded field hunt. After that i was hooked and it became a HUGE part of my life.

One of my favourite parts of hunting is calling to turn and lock some birds up with my Fowl Obsession calls this upcoming season. Could not be happier being part of the Fowl Obsession Team and look forward to hunting with mark and the team in the future.

Robert Dick

My name is Robert John Dick, and I live in Holland, Michigan. I've been hunting with my dad as far back as I can think. I got my first shotgun at the age of 9 and that got me pumped for my first season goose hunting once I turned 10, and I'll never forget my first hunt, shooting my first mallard and first goose. I started calling Christmas of that year when I got my first call out of my stocking. I won my very first contest the next spring and that kicked off practice and a thirst for more contests. I traveled all around Michigan that year and even Illinois once. In my second year of contest calling I met Mark at a contest and he offered me an amazing opportunity to call for him. I was interested and took his call to my next contest and to make a long story short, his calls helped me win the Michigan State Goose Calling Championship just a year after blowing in my first contest, and as of writing this, hopefully the 2012 Junior World Champion. Thanks for all the help Mark!

I was introduced to fowl obsession calls February of 2012 when I met Mark at the Iowa Deer classic. When I talked to mark and blew his calls I knew they were The Real deal. In a matter of a week I purchased every call he had to offer and took the other junk of my lanyard. These call are Easy to blow and Realistic and to top it off a guy that will back his product! I would recommend these calls to any waterfowler.

From the first time I had geese landing at my feet in the middle of a corn field, I was hooked on waterfowling.

Nick Kanter

 I was born and raised in Mukwonago, a small town in southeast Wisconsin. My father also named Mark introduced me to the world of waterfowl before I could even walk. ranging from central Wisconsin near the Horicon marsh down to the exterior zone of southern wisconsin. Since that moment I have never turned back. My dad and I still love to get out in the blind together any chance we can. I can remember countless mornings in the blind with him, working on my duck identification skills, and watching geese and ducks work.

I am a happily married 25 years old and am a full time journeyman steamfitter. When I am not at work or out chasing duck and geese, I like to spend time four wheeling, bowfishing, or working with my 3 year old german shorthaired pointer, Scout. During the summer I work with delta waterfowl, but when the leaves start to turn colors again, it’s time to get mind set and get out scouting again and getting all the gear ready for the season to begin!

My passion for the outdoors is embedded deep into my soul. It’s not something that will pass over, not something that pops up every now and again. My love for the outdoors only intensifies with every early morning sunrise, with every buck grunt, turkey gobble, goose honk and late season mallard hunt. I am a full tilt, full time outdoor conservationist, who wants this resource to be around for many many years to come, so future generations can too! As of May 30th 2013 I will be a proud dad of a future little hunter that I hope will also follow my foot steps as I did with my father. I take much pride in taking young kids on hunts with me. There is nothing more enjoyable then seeing a smile on a kids face and knowing they too are now hooked in the world of waterfowl.
I feel being a part of the fowl Obsession pro-staff family would not only continue my success in waterfowl hunting but also gain friendships that last a lifetime. I am very willing to travel and help out with anything needed from me. I also am very willing to get the fowl obsession name out any way I can. I have friends who have heard my calls and now also are proud owners of goose and duck calls from Mark. I would like to continue that for you guys every chance/way I can. All I expect from Fowl Obsession would have to be to continue the great costomer service! Not just good calls and speedy shipping but the friendly down to earth attitude and family man life style that Mark already puts out! I would also like to stay in contact with you guys as much as I can and build a strong friendship with each other. I am very open to hunt together whether its down in IL, up here in WI or chasing snows out west!

My name is Garrett Giesler. I am 16 years old and live in Omaha, Nebraska. Don’t let my young age fool you, for I have been hunting waterfowl for many years now. I hunt all over Nebraska and thanks to my dad Joe and many friends in the area; I became “obsessed.” During the season, if I’m not in the field I am usually scouting or getting ready for that next hunt. I spend the offseason practicing my calling and getting involved in the sport whether it’s participating in calling contests or helping out at shows. Being at a young age, I am often overlooked by people in the industry. Mark Carey on the other hand is all about getting young people, like me, out in the industry of waterfowl hunting /calling and I greatly appreciate that.

Steve Lutz

I was born and raised and still reside in Windsor, Colorado.  At the age of five my father introduced me to the world of hunting.  By the age of eight I was calling and shooting ducks and geese beside him in the blind.  Thanks to my dad I am totally obsessed with waterfowl hunting.  Also living in Colorado and having so many animals to hunt I found a love for archery hunting deer, elk and pronghorn.    I now share this love of hunting with my wife Charlotte and two boys Troy and Landen.
 
I have been a guide for several outfits along the front range for the past twelve years. After many years of guiding and working with several companies it was time to go at it on my own.  Two years ago I decided to start my own outfitting company Birds of Fall Outfitters, LLC.  It has been a life long dream come true!   After starting my company I dropped all of my pro staff positions and started fresh. 
 
In that period of twelve years of guiding for others, I met Mark Carey.  We hunted together and called with and against each other in many calling contests.  When I found out Fowl Obsession Calls was his creation I was on the phone.  After blowing the calls and knowing what a stand up guy Mark is, I made the choice to make Fowl Obsession Calls the official calls of Birds of Fall Outfitters, LLC.  I look forward to working and hunting with Mark to help make both of our companies grow.

I began waterfowl hunting at a young age under the guidance of my Uncles, chasing ducks and geese in the Illinois River Valley. From the age of 18 I have allowed my passion for waterfowl hunting to take me all over the Midwest, from North Dakota down to Arkansas, and everywhere in between. I enjoy scouting birds and figuring them out in new areas and watching them pile into the decoys the next morning. I love to call waterfowl and there is no better feeling than calling geese in from hundreds of yards out all the way until their feet hit the ground in the decoy spread and someone yells, "Take 'em!"

My name is Gavin Shepard I am from a small farm town called Durand MI. I have been hunting waterfowl since I was about 8 my grandpa got me into it hunting wood ducks on the river,  I have expanded from there.  From a few wood duck decoys, to a trailer full of full bodies and a wall of floaters hanging in are barn.  Waterfowl hunting is something I love to do I spend all year preparing for September and the mouths to fallow .. I have a lab named Drake  that is my best hunting buddy we train all thought summer running field trials and such, so even when it's  in the temperature Is in 90s, season is still in the back of my mind.  From mallards in the back water to honkers in the field, nothing is better then working a flock of birds right into the hole.

I was born a western Kansas farm kid with a passion for the outdoors. Growing up hunting all types of game and becoming an engineer after college in Texas. After a 16yr career, I decided to follow my passion in the outdoors full time by returning to Kansas in 2008. My time is now spent promoting youth events and getting youth outdoors to keep our heritage alive for generations to come safely and ethically. Being a father and family man, I want the most success in the field to keep the youth interested, and Fowl Obsession calls are the best I've found in closing the deal on those birds to put the biggest smiles on those kids! And that's what makes life great for me!

Jake Vogt

My name is Jake Vogt and I'm 13 years old from Arlington, Nebraska. I may be young but I understand waterfowl better than you think and I'm ready for a life long journey of memories. I started hunting two seasons ago when my brother and I went out in the morning and shot our limit of teal which was also the day I shot my first duck.  Ever since then you can say I have a "Fowl Obsession".  I shot and called in my first goose the season after in a cornfield with 12 bigfoots from which we layed under as blinds.  About thirty minutes before sunset a flock of six geese came in and my brother said to let them get closer, but  I couln't resist the adrenaline.  I pulled up and shot my first goose from forty yards out.  In shock of killing one I ruined the rest of the flock by getting up and taking off for my first goose but I didn't care.  Since then I started to work on my calling day by day.  I always blew my duck call more than my goose call but eventually it paid off.  Through my brothers encouragement I was ready for my first contest.  Before my first competition I met Mark at the Scheels waterfowl expo in Lincoln, Nebraska.  That day I blew my "belly up" in front of Mark and the smile on his face will never be forgotten.  I ended up with second place but ill take it.  Long story short I am now part of the team and couldn't be happier.  All in all I feel that Mark would do anything for anybody member or not.

Cole Schaub

I'm Cole Schaub and I live in Central Indiana. I grew up being taught about the outdoors and deer hunting from my dad and my uncle but was never introduced to waterfowl hunting until I was about 14. Being 21 now you could definitely say I am hooked on quack. I still have not gotten the short reed goose call down, but I can, however, blow a flute. I really hope after 6 years of blowing a flute, Mark and the guys can get me on a short reed. Although my passion is still ducks I love seeing the big honkers fly into my spread. I am attending college now and working part-time, so I'm pretty busy. But, all my free time goes into the outdoors; whether it's training my 7 month old pup, or trying to figure out new ways to call in birds. I am always trying to learn new things and meet new people. I am extremely excited about being a part of Fowl Obsession and blowing the calls. I met Mark at the Peoria show this year and ended up buying the fully loaded duck call. I Love it!

Gabe Hepke

My name is Gabe Hepke and I have been obsessed with waterfowl hunting since I was a small child. I was introduced to waterfowl hunting by my dad and grandpa. The first time I picked up a call was when I was 5 years old; 18 years later I still get the same excitement calling to a group of ducks or geese and watching them work. I was born and raised in East Central Iowa and still live here today. I try and hunt 60+ days out of the season here in Iowa. Outside of waterfowl hunting I enjoy taking my Vizsla’s out upland bird hunting. I have a fiancé and a 3 year old son who loves to go out hunting with dad and grandpa. Fowl Obsession calls are great sounding and calls you can count on to work when you need them.
