For Shane Hendershot, competing in turkey-calling contests was almost a fluke. The Zanesville, Ohio, resident grew up pursuing small game and deer. It wasn’t until 1993, when a friend took him turkey hunting for the first time, that spring gobbles “sparked a fire,” as he describes it. In 1999, he entered his first turkey-calling contest on a whim—and won. In 2007, the owner of Hendershot Game Calls won his first Grand National, and in 2011, he did it again.
