Georgetown's Mark Prudhomme continued to rule the roost at the National Wild Turkey Federation's Grand National Calling Championships in mid-February in Nashville, Tenn.
Prudhomme was victorious in four of five events at the calling championships, held at the 2013 NWTF Convention and Sport Show.
On the first day of competition, Prudhomme started by topping 18 competitors to win the owl hooting competition and made it a clean sweep on the day by beating a field of 25 to win the gobbling competition.
The next day Prudhomme and partner Kerry Terrell of Statesboro, Ga., teamed to win the GNCC Team Challenge.
On the final day of competition, Prudhomme won the GNCC Champion of Champions Division, which consists only of previous Grand National champions. The only event Prudhomme failed to win was the Senior Division, during which he had a problem with a reed in one of his calls.
Prudhomme has won 17 titles overall in the NWTF's Grand National Calling Championships. A year ago, he won three championships at the event.
Prudhomme was particularly pleased with winning the owl hooting and gobbling competitions back-to-back.
''To win those two back to back was kind of special,” Prudhomme said. “The level of competition here is unbelievable.”
Prudhomme and Terrell have won the team championship six times. Prudhomme claimed his fifth straight victory in the Champion of Champions Division.
