Rogers is a great contest because it pays the top ten places. Grounds calls took four places out of the top ten. Not only do Tim and Hunter make a great product, they know how to 'teach' the art of calling. There are so many good young callers out there today, it will be exciting to see what the future holds for this sport. We want to say "Thank you" to all the Grounds' callers.

'WORLD' 2009, Easton Maryland Waterfowl Festival

I want to thank GOD for blessing me with the talent and knowledge to be able to continue in the work I have loved for four decades. I am grateful to GOD for sending to me talented, teachable young men that are willing to listen to instruction and are eager to learn the art of goose calling. All I can do is share my knowledge; they put in the many hours of practice and effort to be successful . It does not come cheap or easy. This past weekend in Easton MD three of those young men rose to the status of WORLD champion:

ROBBIE IVERSON, Ottawa, IL, only 17 yr. old, won the WORLD Goose Calling Championship in Easton, MD. Robbie has been blowing my Poly Carb Super Mag with Triple Crown guts for several years. He has won many contests. He is a hard worker and knows what he wants. He listens and he is patient. Good caller!


MICHAEL RITTER, Herrin, IL, only 15 yr. old, won the JUNIOR WORLD Goose contest in Easton, MD. Michael blows my Super Thang. Michael has a great work ethic and always accepts criticism and uses it to improve. Great attitude.
Second place - Jamie Avedon, Arnold, MD, Super Thang
Fourth place - Ryan Wilson, Karnak, IL, Triple Crown



SCOTT THREINEN, Rochester, MN won the WORLD LIVE GOOSE
for the 3rd time in Easton, MD. Scott blows the REAL THANG.
Tim and Scott

Second place in LIVE Goose - Hunter Grounds, Johnston City, IL
Third place in LIVE Goose - Robbie Iverson, Ottawa, IL

Fourth place in LIVE Goose - Forrest Carpenter, Longmont, CO, Triple Crown

I want to congratulate all the contestants at the WORLD this year and thank them for their hard work. Us older guys must celebrate the youth and encourage their enthusiasm for our wonderful sport. My many thanks to all the folks at the Easton Waterfowl Festival for putting on the #1 contest in the nation.

Hunter Grounds
Sportsman's Iron Man 2005
Sportsman's Grand Finale 2005
WORLD Goose Calling Champion, 2005, Easton, MD

The names of Tim and Hunter Grounds are synonymous with goose calls, goose calling, and goose hunting. Born Jan. 31, 1958, Tim's first trip to the field was before he ever started school. He carried Hunter, born June 10, 1987 to the blind when Hunter was still in diapers. Both have been passionate, avid hunters ever since. They have traveled to Canada, South America, Mexico, and all across the United States to enjoy hunting, entering contests, and speaking at events. Tim began guiding professionally at the Crab Orchard Wildlife Refuge as a young teen. He has been a creative force in the goose call industry and a champion caller for four decades beginning in the 1970s. He is a member of the Legends of the Outdoors Hall of Fame, a leader in the field, and is a teacher of the sport he loves so much. Both Tim and Hunter are WORLD champion callers. Tim was retired from the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP GOOSE CALLING event in Easton, MD after winning it three times. He has won the Winchester World Open twice, nationals, regionals, and state goose calling contests. Tim owns well over 100 first place titles. In Nov. 2003 16 yr. old Hunter, made history. He became the youngest ever to win the WORLD at Easton, MD. Not only did he win the Senior Division that night, he also won the Junior World Goose, and the Junior Duck. In 2004 Hunter scored the most points of any caller on the contest circuit, earning the Greenhead Gear Cup and $2500. His total contest wins in 2004 earned him $30,000. He has won the Junior World Duck once and won the Intermediate World Duck twice in Stuttgart ARK. Both Tim and Hunter own and operate "Tim Grounds Championship Calls, Inc." and "Tim and Hunter Grounds Goose Club in Southern Illinois. No one can touch Tim's history or the impact he has had on the goose call industry. He has raised the bar to a new level for the betterment of the sport. Tim gives a lot of credit to Abe Lewis, Charley & Keith Hess, Harold Knight and David Hale for his success.

Our boys in Kirkuk Iraq had a calling contest. Pictured here is the TGteam. The winner of the duck and goose competition was Kelley Horne. They had fifteen callers scheduled, but a mission came up and a few of the guys had to work instead of 'call', once again, proving they do the most important jobs first. We will have names and hometowns of the guys later. SUPPORT OUR TROUPS. Keep them in your daily prayers.
