Barnie Calef was born and raised in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and is the owner of Calef Calls (www.calefcalls.net). Barnie is a 3X World Duck Calling Champion. He won those championships in two different centuries and is one of only 8 individuals who have won the World Championship three times. Two of those were back to back wins, a rarity in championship duck calling. Over the years he won 13 state and regional championships and has finished in the Top 10 in the World Championship 8 times. Barnie won his three championships with three different duck calls. In his search for the perfect call, he founded Calef Calls, which manufactures both duck and goose calls. He has been in the outdoor business taping instructional DVDs, hosting outdoor TV and selling duck and goose calls since 2000. He was the host of Drake's Migration Nation waterfowl hunting show.
