My name is Derek Amorim. I was born and raised in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada where I still currently reside with my very understanding wife and new born son. I began hunting waterfowl with my dad at the age of 7 when holding a duck and goose seemed like a heavy task. I now chase ducks and geese across the province of Ontario from the beginning of our early goose season in September right through to the end of late goose season in March. With such a long season coupled with living in the most densely populated area of Canada, being realistic is key to success. I have relied on Bill Saunders calls to give me the edge over other hunters when in the field. I will never step foot in a field without my traffic on my lanyard. In the off season you will find me chasing turkeys, competing in calling contests, fishing competitive bass tournaments, and snowmobiling. Aside from having consistently successful seasons, my main future goal is to instil the love and passion I have for waterfowling in my son. I’d like to thank my very understanding wife for allowing me the time away to do what I love season after season. Remember to take a kid hunting and fishing.




My name is Mike Merlo. I am 40 years old and live near the East edge of Sacramento Valleys rice country in Roseville California. I have been hunting waterfowl since I was nine years old and have hunted ducks in Alaska, Alberta, Oregon and all over Northern California.

During duck and goose season I hunt everything from dry and flooded rice fields, pastures, and seasonally flooded marshes at public wildlife areas for canadas, specks, snows and ducks. In the off season I enjoy, contest calling, photographing ducks and geese, and volunteering my time with California Waterfowl Association.



Hello, my name is Cody Grounds, I grew up on the front range of Colorado. My passion for waterfowl hunting started at a young age. I was 12 years old the first time I went hunting and I’ve been hooked ever since. My passion for hunting has grown over the years, it has taken me on many adventures all over the US, and to Canada. Throughout my waterfowl experiences I have found that I have a passion for waterfowl photography. I always look forward to the next adventure that presents itself, and to the new places I will have the pleasure of experiencing.




My name is Spencer Proulx. I am 19 years old and I am from Farmington, Connecticut. I am a college student and waterfowl guide in upstate New York. I started waterfowl hunting at the age of 10, and my addiction to the sport has been growing ever since. So much so that I have found myself to be hunting almost exclusively waterfowl. I owe many thanks to the waterfowlers around me, especially my Dad for fostering my love for the sport and passing his knowledge on to me.

I have hunted in many different conditions and scenarios and I can honestly say I have enjoyed it all. I regularly hunt many regions of CT and NY, and have hunted MD. Bill Saunders Calls have become a vital part of my gear and I have found all of Bill’s calls to be of the highest quality, and the deadliest! I love the range, power and responsiveness of the Atomic G for breaking down those high flying migrators, and the ultra-realistic, pure duck sound of the Steve Shultz Triple for convincing those wary mallards to commit. Shooting them in tight is what it’s all about!

During the off season you can find me fishing, target shooting, or spending quality time with friends and family.


My name is Todd Dillon. I am 41 years old and live in northwest CT. with my beautiful and supportive wife, Annette. I am lucky enough to be employed in sales in the outdoor industry, so everyday of the year I am living and breathing hunting and fishing. I began my waterfowl addiction at the age of 15 and by age 18 knew what I really wanted to do. focus my efforts on tricking them big ol’ heavies! Over the past 2 decades, I have really honed my skills and have become very successful at putting those big birds, in tight, back-flapping over the decoys. I spend an average of 60+ days a field each year chasing puddlers, divers, specks, honks and snows, if it can be called and has webbed feet then I’m probably interested! I regularly hunt CT, MA, NJ, NY, ONT and have been fortunate enough to have hunted in DE, AR, ME, OR and SASK. Bill Saunders Guide Series calls are a vital part of my gear; I would not be caught in the field without my Traffic call or my Atomic G! In the spring time after chasing spring snows I can be found in the timber chasing long-beards, or on the water fishing for small-mouth, large mouth, trout, salmon, and striped bass in the surf.



My name is Cody McCarthy I am originally from north Idaho, but I am currently playing football for Eastern Washington University. Even though football and school take up time, I still manage to get out every week in the woods or water. Whether it mallards locking up over the decoys or a big long beard strutting in the field in front of me you will find me out there chasing them. I was raised in a family of waterfowl hunters. I cut my teeth (literally) on my father’s calls when I was a baby. As a 3rd Generation Waterfowl Hunter I grew up around both sets of grandparents, uncles and my father prepping equipment and leaving the home many hours before daylight to ready a blind for that mornings action. Even my mother has a love for hunting waterfowl. My earliest baby pictures were of me with decoys, dogs or that day’s limit of waterfowl. My whole family is avid hunters and fishermen. I am also a avid big game hunter, whether it’s bugling and closing the distance on a big bull with my bow, or setting up my ballistics to shoot a deer at long ranges. I have been around the outdoors my entire life. I believe that learning and developing to call the game brings me closer to my prey and builds a richer and more memorable experience as well as bringing home more limits for the table. I live my life by three words faith, family, and the outdoors.


I am a native of Idaho, where I have spent the past 12 seasons hunting all the game this great state has to offer. In 2002 I began manufacturing decoys with partner Marcus Flesher. Our decoys (Hard Core Decoys) are now used by some of the nation’s top waterfowl hunters. Research and development puts me in the field about a hundred days each season, hunting from Canada to Colorado and everywhere between. I guide in the fall in Eastern Washington at Pacific Wings. The summers are busy building decoys and competing in calling contests (2001 Idaho State Champ)


My name is Kole Lane and I live in Eagle, Idaho. I am currently 15 years old. I grew up around a lot of big game and upland game hunting but little waterfowl. I went on my first duck hunt when I was 9 years old and have been hooked on waterfowl hunting since. I got my first Bill Saunders call when I was 10 and it is still my go to call. I entered my first calling contest when I was 9 years old. I enjoy calling in contests and meeting many new people. I am a freshman going into Eagle High School and I play baseball, football, and wrestle.

I hunt a lot of ducks on the Snake River and many rivers Oregon has to offer. Most of my goose hunts are a in my backyard. A 2 minute walk down the road and into the pit and I am waiting on shooting light. If I am not hunting or fishing, I’m preparing in the offseason or hanging out with friends and family. I try to be in the outdoors as much as I can and enjoying learning new things.


My name is Brad Brown and I am fortunate enough to live in Hayden Lake, Idaho with my wife and 3 children. In the Northern part of this state there is always something to chase. Big game, predators (especially wolves), some upland birds, turkeys, fish and of course waterfowl. I am able to spend 50-60 days in the field dedicated to hunting. I love the hunt. When there is nothing to hunt I am able to get my kids and others in the field to teach them about the outdoors that so many take for granted. I work in organizing outings with our local Fish and Game Department to take kids out and do bird banding projects and waterfowl calling demos. I spend time training my dog and getting ready for October. In my opinion it is always hunting season!!

In my 30 + years of hunting I have been fairly successful in filling my freezer. I have never been as successful in  water fowling  as I have been since 2000, when I got a hold of my first Bill Saunders call. It has made such a difference in the way I hunt. The birds in my area aren’t what you call plentiful. They get pounded day in and day out. I rely on my scouting, my gear and my calls to get it done. thanks Bill for some great calls!!


Craig has been hunting waterfowl as his primary target for over 20 years. He has guided for Eagle Lakes and Pacific Wings Waterfowl Adventures, both located in Eastern Washington. Fishing has been another passion for Craig, taking him to Alaska where he guided on the ocean as well as the many lakes, rivers and streams on Prince of Wales Island. He now resides in Montana with his wife Melanie, daughter Grace and good old “Chessy” Yeager. Craig still hunts as often as possible


My name is Jesse Stanley and I live in North Idaho. Waterfowl hunting has been my  passion my whole life, but I enjoy just about anything then gets me outdoors. My waterfowl career started when I was in diapers, hunting ducks with my dad and grandpa in the Columbia basin. After I graduated high school I moved to Idaho to work on the family farm. Over the first couple of year living in Idaho my friends and I turned our attention primarily to Canada geese. We rely on realistic decoys and calling and I never leave the house without my Bill Saunders heavy and traffic. They have been one of the key factors to a lot of sucsessfull days in the field.


My name is Steve Torres, I live in Sandpoint Idaho, located 60 miles from the Canadian border. I’m originally from the high desert of California where I grew up hunting chukar and quail in the foothills. My passion for waterfowl hunting began later in my life after I moved to Idaho, where I fell in love with hunting Canada geese, mallards and all waterfowl alike. I also harvest a deer in the fall, chase gobblers in the spring and fish for just about everything through out summer. Living in a state that is close to 70% public land, competition for birds can be tough, thus I really rely on my calling and decoy strategy. Something I take very serious, practicing almost everyday. Two calls that never leave my side, my Traffic and probably the most versatile call on the market, my Darkside. Using Bill Saunders calls gives me a clear advantage against all the competition on the river, lakes, ponds, fields and soon the stage. I work for Real Duck, a gun dog supply and decoy company. Being in the waterfowl industry, it gives me the flexibility too hunt as much as possible. Everyday we get to spend in the blind with friends and family is a blessing and being able to field staff for Bill Saunders calls is true honor.


My name is Wyatt Beckley, I’m 13 yrs old from SW Idaho. I started chasing ducks with my dad on the Snake River when I was 5 years old. When we weren’t on the Snake we would target big honkers in the fields. I spend 70-80 days a year hunting. Starting with big game in the fall and waterfowl in the winter months. In the spring we spend a lot of time hunting specks, snows and turkeys. At a very young age I learned that in order to be successful you have to scout more than you hunt. I started blowing on calls at a very young age and practice just about every day (just ask my mom) Bill Saunders calls have helped us be very successful in the field. There is truly nothing better than finishing birds right in your face. I’m very blessed to have the opportunity to hunt as much as I do & to spend so many days in the field with family and friends.




During the fall I am typically chasing greentops from central Illinois down to the Southern tip of the state. I am lucky enough to come from an area where I can chase waterfowl close to five months out of the year. From mallards to snow geese I rarely see a day off.

I have also dove head-first into the world of photography where I am slowly working on improving my amateur-at-best skills. I like the challenge of not only fooling waterfowl into my decoys, but also snapping some photos before I pull the trigger.

I have had a short run with the calling stage where I won the Illinois State Novice Goose in 2009 along with multiple top 5 finishes throughout the years in both duck and goose contests. I also have begun working on a live duck routine that will hopefully produce in more top 5 finishes for the future.

Whether it’s a stubborn tom turkey or a wise drake mallard, I am confident I can bring them well within range as long as I have a Bill Saunders call in hand.



My name is John Dembowski and I am from Dyer, IN. which is located just south of Chicago, IL in Northwest Indiana, “The Region”.  This area is known for its local and migrant flocks of Canada Geese.  I grew up hunting my whole life and developed a passion for waterfowl very early.  Any day of the season you can find me chasing birds, whether it be hunting or scouting, I have an obsession with making the best of my hunting opportunities.  I have been blessed with great family and friends that support the lifestyle of a waterfowler.  Whether it be local canadas, sea ducks in maine, snow geese in missouri, or ducks in the dakotas, I have traveled all over this great country and have had the great opportunity to meet and hunt with with some incredible people.  If you can’t find me in the blind more than likely I am salmon fishing on the great Lake Michigan, training my dog “Radar”, or walking around the woods.  The variable tones of the G.P. and Traffic make it hard for any goose to resist.  From the fast and furious to the slow and steady, Bill Saunder’s calls have made many of my days afield a success.”






My name is Joe Citrano, i’m 35 years old. I live on Maryland’s eastern shore in the town of Ocean Pines. My dad took me goose hunting when I was 6 years old and I’ve been hooked ever since. I used to deer hunt too, but my waterfowl obsession took over. I hunt ducks or geese every chance i get. I’ve had the opportunity to hunt a few states, mostly Maryland and Delaware,but have also been to Canada, as well.

I do a lot of different kinds of hunting; canada’s, snows, brant, puddle ducks, divers and sea ducks. I’m lucky to have so many options. As waterfowl hunting is becoming more popular the birds are under a lot of pressure.Calling is more important now than it has ever been and Bill Saunders makes a great call for lots of different situations. I’ve been contest calling off and on for a few years with a few wins and I’ve placed a bunch of times but always had fun.

When I’m not hunting I’m always getting stuff ready for the next season. Working on blinds, building sneak boats, carving decoys and practicing on my calls, etc. Aside from the hunting stuff, I also love the water so I spend as much time in it as I can fishing crabbing,and riding some waves. Before we know it the season will be upon us so practice your Saunders call, stay low and shoot straight.


I’m Dave Davis. I’ve been an avid waterfowl hunter in the state of Maryland for 13 years. I was hooked on waterfowling by Joe Citrano at the age of 14. I focus most of my hunting energy on Canada Geese. Here in Maryland, we get a short resident season that is followed by a two part migratory season. Every year the pressure that is put on Canada’s in Maryland increases. It is important for goose hunters to learn new things with every hunt to help them be more successful in the field.

When I’m not hunting geese, I focus my time on hunting White-Tailed Deer, Ducks, Snow Geese, and Brant. The off season is also the most important time to focus on practicing calling geese. I’ve learned a great deal from cds and dvds from Shawn Stahl, Scott Threinen, and Dave Smith.

Since we have the opportunity to hunt resident geese as well as migratory birds here in Maryland, it is important to be able to make a wide range of sounds and tones when calling. Saunders Calls has a great selection of goose calls to fit any calling situation.



My name is RJ Dick and I live in southwest Michigan. Waterfowling has always been a passion of mine, even before I could shoot at birds. Just watching it all unfold and getting a chance to be out in the field was an exciting opportunity for me. Once I picked up a call at age 11, I couldn’t put it down. From there, I learned how to call birds on our local game management unit, which demanded exceptional calling to compete with those hunting around us. Sharpening my skills over the years and competing in my first contest when I was 12, I kept at it and started taking junior contests around the country by storm, including 2013 and 2014 junior world titles. 2015 was the year I switched to Saunders calls and finally won my world open goose calling championship and even placed 3rd in the world live competition. Needless to say, goose hunting and calling has been a huge part of my life, and I don’t where I’d be without it and those who have supported and helped me along the way.


My name is John Westenbarger and I live in Gaylord, Michigan. Located on the 45th parallel, Gaylord is an area that has a rich offering of waterfowl adventures.  Our hunting consists of shooting small ponds, and fields for puddle ducks and geese, to gunning the Great Lakes for divers and sea ducks.  My passion for waterfowl was seeded in my soul at about the age of five after seeing my Dad’s duck decoys.  I began my waterfowl career about 20 years ago while obtaining my degree in Fisheries and Wildlife management at Lake Superior State University.   It was during this time that my OBSSESION for chasing honkers and a quest for fulfilling a life list was born.>

Since those early days, I have accumulated over 47 species of waterfowl on my life list and have had the privilege to hunt all four flyways and in South America.   Though my travels have provided me some wonderful experiences, it is my passion for the moans, clucks and honks of Canada geese that keeps me running and gunning from early September to late January and from Ontario down to Texas.  In pursuit of chasing honkers, my go to call is the Traffic.  The speed and irresistible notes that the Traffic produces can even have the toughest honkers dancing over the decoys.  I am proud to be a member of the Bill Saunders’s pro-staff.

In the offseason, I enjoy working on my farm, and training my dogs with my lovely wife and two boys.


I’m Chad Vines, and I am from Rockwood, Michigan. I started hunting at the age of 12 but I have went with my father many times before this watching and learning, and waiting for the day I could participate.

I was exposed to hunting early in my life, but in the beginning waterfowl hunting wasn’t a part of my falls. No one in my family waterfowl hunted, however it was always something that interested me. So when I turned 17 and was able to legally hunt on my own. I bought a dozen decoys and a couple calls and set out to kill my limit. Growing up in southeast, Michigan along the lake Erie shore, waterfowl opportunity abounded. However being self taught I struggled my first few years. Eventually I was able to up grade my gear and my water fowling skills to become quit proficient at harvesting birds.

A major factor to success that I quickly came to realize was the ability to sound realistic on a call. That’s when I started looking around and found Saunders Calls They were hands down some of the best calls I ever used! Easy to use, easy to tune, and most importantly they sounded great.

I still avidly archery hunt for deer, bear, and turkeys, but water fowling has become a major part of my free time when the weather starts to get cold, and I am very pleased to be able to represent a top notch company like Saunders Calls.






I was raised in eastern Nebraska, and currently live in Livingston, Montana. I enjoy hunting many creatures, including elk, deer, antelope and turkeys, but devote upwards of 120 days per season hunting waterfowl mostly up and down the central flyway. . I also enjoy fly fishing, fly tying and riding my Natgear Harley-Davidson.


My name is Brett Dorak and I live in Sobieski, Wisconsin. I am a recent graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point with a Wildlife Management Degree. During the hunting season I try to be out in the field at every opportunity that I can. It doesn’t matter whether it is hunting Canadas in the fields, calling ducks through the flooded timber or chasing snow geese in the spring. It’s an obsession that continues to grow. When I am not hunting I am competing in sporting clay tournaments throughout the United States and I have been fortunate enough to be on the U.S. Shooting team in 2004 for the World Championships in England.. I have also been able to compete in the ESPN Great Outdoor Games for a few years and was able to take home a Silver Medal. When I am in the field hunting I count on Bill Saunders Calls time in and time out to put the birds right where I want them.



I currently live in Gretna, Nebraska with my understanding wife, Toni, two daughters Charli (who already loves her traffic) and Pyper, and black lab Sam. I grew up on a farm in Central Nebraska in the heart of the rain water basin where my passion for pursuing waterfowl began. When I was barely old enough to walk my father and grandfather would pull me across the Platte River in a johnboat to our goose blind. Sitting in the blind, watching, listening as they turned flocks of Canadian geese towards the decoys with their feet down, started the urge burning deep inside many years ago. Whether I am sitting in a field or out in the middle of the river each hunt adds fuel to the fire as the birds always offer a new challenge. When I am not chasing ducks and geese around all parts of the Midwest I enjoy spending time with my family, hunting pheasant, turkey and deer, raising and training Labs and also teaching all that want to learn how to blow the best out there, Bill Saunders Guide Series Calls. Do it right, and finish em’ tight, Nick!


My name is Brian Hauptman, I was born and raised in Omaha, NE and now reside in the Western Nebraska Panhandle near the North Platte River Valley. I fell through the top of my first goose pit when I was about 7 and have been fascinated by waterfowl ever since. I enjoy pursuing geese more than any other living creature. I have a wonderful wife that is very tolerant of my addiction as well as a little boy, that I hope someday will be my favorite hunting partner. I work for the BNSF railroad as an electrician. When I am not hunting I enjoy spending time with my family, my chocolate lab Deke, and relaxing watching duck and goose porn.


My name is Jake Hastings and I was born and raised in Northeast Nebraska. I spent a lot of my youth hunting and fishing the Missouri River. My main passion is waterfowl hunting and being able to watch my dogs work. I learned this passion from my Dad, who owned and operated an outfitting business taking clients hunting and fishing for over 30 years in Northeast Nebraska where the Niobrara River meets the Missouri. From the time I could walk I have spent as much time as possible in the woods with my family members.

I continue this passion today with my Labrador Retrievers and the business I run, Flat Water Retrievers. I decided to start Flat Water Retrievers to help be an ambassador of all things hunting and maintain the integrity of the Labrador Breed. I also love being a part of my local Ducks Unlimited Chapter by being a committee member and helping youth and new hunters get involved in the sport of waterfowl Hunting.

My go to goose call in the field is my Bill Saunders “The Heavy”. It’s a great call that works in all types of conditions. I love the range I can get and the way it can work the birds.


My name is Dillon Stutzman. I’m 18 years old and live in Burwell, Nebraska located in the north central part of the state. My Dad and I started a waterfowl guide service, Calamus Webfooters L.L.C., three years ago. When the hunting season arrives I’m either guiding or hunting with friends. In the summer, if I’m not working I’m fishing or getting ready for the fall season. I started hunting with my dad when I was four and shot my first goose when I was seven. I won my first goose calling contest when I was eight. My successes for getting the birds in close are my Guides Series Calls, and Final Approach Blinds.


My name is Nick Bilava and I currently reside in Omaha, NE. I grew up and still spend a great deal of my time nearby the Platte River in eastern NE. I am an avid hunter pursuing anything NE has to offer from water fowling, bow hunting whitetails and chasing spring gobblers. During the fall migration, our area stages thousands of migrating ducks and geese due to the number of refuges we have available. The birds become wise quick to the safe zones so adjusting our hunting tactics to be consistently successful is very important. One thing I always can count on is my Bill Saunders Calls to perform day in and day out regardless of the conditions. Bill has a line-up of calls that will fill any need and situation for a hardcore waterfowler.





My name is Jeff Pelayo, Owner-Operator of Anatidae Wingshooting Adventures (AWA). Waterfowl and waterfowling have been a passion and a lifestyle of mine since I was a young boy. I do something related all year…yes…I love it that much!  I have over 30+ years of waterfowling experience from across the USA and Canada. My favorite places to hunt are the prairies of the USA and Canada and also Izembek Lagoon, Cold Bay, Alaska. I am a Waterfowl Biologist by trade. I received my early training at the Delta Waterfowl and Wetlands Research Station in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, Canada. I earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Wildlife Biology from Humboldt State University, Arcata, California and a Master’s of Science degree in Biology from the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. For my graduate thesis, I studied some important questions in life history evolution of Ruddy Ducks in the Minnedota pothole region of Manitoba. I have studied other breeding and wintering waterfowl in remote regions of Alaska and throughout the prairie potholes of the USA and Canada. My research findings are published in prominent Ornithological journals. I have been employed by such organizations as California Waterfowl Association, Delta Waterfowl, Ducks Unlimited and the USGS Alaska Science Center.

I am a collector and scholar of old decoys and other waterfowling artifacts from the Chesapeake Bay region. Preserving waterfowling history is of great interest to me. Most important are my young boys, the AWA Black Dogs – Cypress Creeks Black Jet “Jet”, Riversides Razmataz “Raz” and Cypress Creeks Black Ace “Ace”. I enjoy training my labs to be the best gun dogs they can be! I want my clients to experience what it is like to hunt over wonderful retrievers with tons of drive! To me…one of the most rewarding aspects of waterfowling is watching black dogs that love the game as much as I do! My older brothers are largely responsible for who I am today… taking me hunting at an early age was enough to do it! For me, life has come full circle – welcome to my world.

From the Prairies to the Tundra….Let’s get ‘em!



My name is Brian Richter and I live in Central Oklahoma. Waterfowling has been my passion for over ten years now, in high school I was taken duck hunting for the first time and the obsession began. I quickly became immersed in all types of bird hunting, but my real passion is working large groups of wary cacklers over decoys in cut corn fields throughout Oklahoma. When I’m not calling geese with my Saunders calls, you can find me in a duck blind or pheasant field. I love hunting all the great bird seasons Oklahoma has to offer. We enjoy large numbers of Rio Grande Turkeys and with the strides the CRP Program has made in the last years we are starting to build a very huntable Pheasant population. I aslo enjoy bass fishing and golfing in the summer. I would like to thank my family and my loving wife Grace for allowing me the time and opportunities to pursue my outdoor obsessions. Either in the goose fields or in the turkey woods keep your Saunders calls close and stay safe.


My dad took me on my first duck hunt at the age of 9 and from that day I was hooked. I love to chase big honkers in Oklahoma but I spend my winters in Central Kansas guiding for Big Kansas Outdoors. Its hard to beat a couple thousand lessors landing at your feet. During the off season I enjoy training dogs and attending shows and calling contest.



I live in Corvallis, Oregon located in the heart of northwest Oregon’s beautiful Willamette Valley. Together with Dave Smith I run a full time guide service in the most highly regulated goose zone in the world. The Northwest Special Permit Zone is home to 7 different subspecies of Canada geese. 2 of these subspecies are protected and all 7 bare overlapping similarities. Hunters are therefore required to pass an identification test before taking to the field. One of the greatest challenges in guiding such an intensely regulated hunt is the ability to call geese in close enough for clients to properly identify. Adding to the challenge is the fact that our geese produce a wide range of sounds from the high pitched squeak of the tiny Cackling Canada goose to the low growls of the large Western Canada. After many years of studying and hunting such a great diversity of geese I have become a stickler for producing realistic sounds that geese respond to. I am a field caller and not a contest caller. I let the geese be my judge because for the hunter they are the only judges that count. If it doesn’t sound real it’s not going on my lanyard.


I live in North Plains, OR which is in the middle of the Willamette Valley/ Dusky Quota Zone. Started Goose hunting in 1979 but have only taken it very seriously since the arrival of nearly 300,000 birds wintering in this valley (from around 1994 to present) compared to around 20,000 in 1979. I have worked as an industrial sculptor since 1986 for companies such as NIKE, FILA, and Reasearch Mannikins, making clay sculptures of footwear and taxidermy mannikins. In 1998 I started sculpting a full-body Canada Goose decoy for my own personal use and this has led to a full-time decoy and fish-replica making business since 1999. I also work as a waterfowl guide for Pacific Wings, in Richland, WA.


My name is Dusty Brown. I’m from Pendleton, Oregon.  Over that last 15 years I haveguided waterfowl hunters from Alberta Canada to Texas. I started out leasing my own duck pond as a Jr. high student with money I made working in a pizza. I hunted my high school and collage years, self taught I started calling. With help from Bill Saunders Calls and Final Approach inventor Ron I started traveling to across the Northwest. I was fortunate enough to win my very first time on stage. With a few other wins along the way in two man contest I was hooked. In 2001 I won the first ever Oregon State Goose. I was humbled in 2002 & 2003 at the Worlds Goose in Easton MD. Meeting 50 of the top callers in the nation was a great learning experience. Finishing mid pack eager to return some day.

I have guided in the Texas Panhandle since 1999. Just recently I was offered a chance to work with  Longneck Outfitters. As of 2009 I have worked with the Premier waterfowl outfitter in Texas. I have realized in the past three years If you love your job, it no longer is a JOB….. Providing the to hunters from across the nation has become a. Chasing ducks , geese and cranes in the ” Panhandle” is as good as gets. With numerous calls offered from Bill Saunders I am able to enjoy hunts season after season. So weather its Specks in the Northern Lights Of Saskatchewan ,Honkers in the Columbia Basin, Huge flocks of Hi line in Texas or migrating green heads, Bill has the calls I choose to use in the field and on stage. After a break from calling eager to get involved again and see if old dogs can learn new tricks.


I live in Eastern Oregon with my wife and two daughters. I have been using Bill Saunders Calls for the last 13 years. I have not only found success on the stage with these calls, but, most importantly, in the field. I have the opportunity to hunt a variety of sub species of Canada Geese along with snow geese and ducks. I have been blessed to be a part of Bills staff and use his gear which has increased my success dramatically. With birds getting smarter, pressure getting higher, and places to hunt getting smaller, it is nice to know that I have the calls necessary to get the job done, and a friend in Bill to help me learn and grow as a hunter.


My name is Chad Carlson. I live in a small town in Eastern Oregon. I moved here about 8 years ago to attend college and never left when I graduated. I spend all my free time away from work out chasing all the game this area has to offer. I bowhunt for deer and elk and occasionally turkeys. I do spend a lot of time in the spring hunting the increasing population of big Rio’s. My summers are busy volunteering time with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife banding ducks and geese. I also help clean up and restore blinds that are on our public hunt areas. I have recently taken up the sport of competition calling. It has been a great way for me to increase my calling skills and meet people that are as fanatic about waterfowl as I am. I travel up to Canada twice a year to take advantage of the great waterfowling opportunities that our neighbors North of us have. Each year I take out some youths during our state sponsored waterfowling days. It is a great time for me to call birds in and get our youth excited about duck and goose hunting. I also guide for Pacific Wings in Eastern Washington when I can find time to get away from my regular 9-5er.


My name is Dusty Bourasa. I live in Eastern Oregon and I am a Corrections Officer. I have been waterfowl hunting for 20 plus years. Waterfowl hunting is a passion of mine and I wait for the upcoming season every year. I have guided hunters for big game, waterfowl, and upland game birds for the last 10 years for different clubs and Outfitters. I have seen the change in waterfowl products from what we thought was awesome back in the day, to what is available now. Such as decoys, blinds and calls. I used calls such as the Olt, Big River flute, and countless others that I have too many to mention. I have been using Guide Series calls since it was established and Bill has done a great job of designing the perfect short reed call for the goose hunter. Guide Series have the sounds that the honkers like to hear. Bill always puts it best, “Why take them tall, when you can finish them.” Words of wisdom right there. Thanks to all and good luck!

My name is Mitch Workinger. I am currently 18 years old, and live in Eastern Oregon. I was introduced to waterfowl hunting when I was 5 years old. After my first duck hunt I was hooked at a very young age and always wanted to go ever since. I spend 70-80 days a year pursuing waterfowl across Eastern Oregon. I also enjoy hunting deer, elk, bear, turkeys, along with fishing for salmon, and steelhead. I started contest calling when I was 13 and won my first time entering a goose calling contest. Ever since then I have been traveling around the west competing in duck and goose calling contests. I hope to make my way to Stuttgart, and Easton in the future. When I am not hunting or competing in calling contests. I like to paly baseball, basketball, go shed hunting, and spend time with my friends and family.


My name is Joe Gonzalez, I live is Banks, Oregon. I’m active archery Hunter and waterfowl Hunters. I’ve been chasing these elk all over the Oregon coast and I got to say toughest hunting but still love it. I became a waterfowl Hunter about 10 years ago hunting with my brother-in-law once I fired that first shot and seen that duck drop I knew I was hooked, I’ve hunted all over the Willamette Valley from getting permission on private land to hunting public land. Working for a little cold and Steven made me more of an active Hunter. During the offseason I like to practice with my kids with their calling and my calling. Prep for the following season and hang out with family.


My name is Trent Vanzant and the Pacific Northwest is home. I live in Forest Grove, Oregon, in the beginnings of the esteemed Willamette Valley. I learned my love of the outdoors from both my father and my grandfather. I spent much of my youth shooting ducks and geese with my father and a close group of childhood buddies. Over time, it has become clear that waterfowl hunting is my passion. There is nothing like the anticipation that builds up inside me when a big mob of Cacklers tornado into my decoy spread or I hear the sound of a family of honkers heading to the roost at night. I’ve spent my life in the outdoors, and what I have learned in the field far surpasses what I have learned in school. Besides hunting, I also spend a lot of time fishing for Salmon, Steelhead, and Sturgeon in the coastal rivers of Oregon and Southwest Washington. Ever since the year 2000, when I first purchased a Short Reed Original Guide Series Goose Call, I have learned the true way to finish geese. Thanks to Bill and his calls, I’ve experienced great success in the field over the years. I know there will never be a day that I leave home without my Traffic Goose Call. When I am not Hunting, Fishing, or spending time with family or friends, I am currently taking courses in Criminal Justice at Western Oregon University



My name is Jason Yablonski and I live in State College, PA. What started out as a weekend activity, waterfowl hunting has become my passion. Growing up, my skills were honed in the Susquehanna River valley. Thanks to a father with 35+ years of experience, my learning curve was rather short. Whether it was hunting backwater potholes or flooded cornfields I learned to fool season wary birds. If I’m not chasing ducks and geese, you can find me casting a fly on one of central PA’s spring creeks, on the lake fishing for striper or practicing my calling.


I was born and raised around hunting. I have lived my entire life in Pennsylvania. I am married to a very understanding wife and I have 2 boys. I have been in the Military for 20 plus years and still serving.

I started hunting at the age of 12 with my dad. We would mostly go for whitetail, but occasionally would venture out to pass shoot at ducks and geese. Around 2005 I gave up on deer hunting, and started pursuing waterfowl heavily.. My passion grew year after year while learning new ways to make the birds do what I wanted them to. In 2014 I started deer hunting again and began chasing Eastern Turkeys. 2015 was the year I decided to try my hand at contest duck calling. I entered my first State Sanctioned contest and placed 3rd. Now it is my mission to make it the World stage in Stuttgart. 2017 I ventured into contest goose calling, and was actually able to get my first novice win in the first contest.

I’ve been blessed to be able to chase ducks and geese all the way out to North and South Dakota and see many more trips out west in my future. I am excited to be part of the Bill Saunders Calls family, and see many more piles of birds and contest wins coming by ways of these calls.



My name is Cody Brockhouse I’m located in western South Dakota and hunt everything that the great state has to offer but my main focus is waterfowl and primarily big geese. Luckily out here we can hunt over 5 months giving plentiful opportunities from early to late season and my personal favorite is targeting quill lake geese in the tail end of our season. I want to show people in my area a quality product that performs at a superior level therefore I am delighted to represent Bill Saunders Calls.


My name is Jack Lower, and I am currently 24 years old. I’ve resided in Sioux Falls, SD my entire life and started going waterfowl hunting with my dad, grandpa, and uncle when I was 5, and have been hooked ever since. My hunting passion lies mainly with Waterfowl, and I particularly enjoy decoying Canada geese and Mallards into the grain fields and prairie potholes of Eastern South Dakota. I started to become interested in and blowing short reed goose calls in 2001, and have since owned many of the short reed calls on the market, but none have fit my style of calling as well as Bill Saunders Calls. I also participate in Competitive Duck and Goose calling extending my passion into the off season.

When I am not hunting, scouting, or calling, you can find me watching sprint car racing at one of the local dirt tracks, or hanging out with my friends, and family. I also have a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences from South Dakota State University in Brookings, SD, and am very interested in the biological side of Waterfowl and Waterfowl Management.



My name is Derek McDaniels I was raised in Central Nebraska. I grew up hunting the rain water basins and Platte river. I now reside in Texas where I am a full time waterfowl guide and spend well over 100 days guiding clients. During the offseason I enjoy chasing turkey’s, contest calling, spending time with my wife who puts up with my obsession, and my two boys. I hope to one day pass on the knowledge and tools that have made me successful to them. Bill Saunders calls plays a major part in my success in the field as well as on the stage.


My name is Eric Bragg, I’m 22, and I’m from Springtown, Texas. I’ve hunted waterfowl all my life, all over the central flyway. My father started taking me at the age of 5 and I’ve been hooked ever since. At 12 I picked up my first short reed goose call and began practicing daily. At 18 I won the CWA Open Goose contest and the Cabelas Open Goose in Fort Worth, Texas. Soon as I was able to drive I was working as a helper in west Texas learning to run goose hunts. I currently guide waterfowl hunts in SW Oklahoma for Finishline Outdoors. I hunt 60+ days a year chasing game from Canada all the way down to Texas. During the offseason I spend my time at the lake with friends or blowing goose calls and getting ready for the following season. I believe the traffic is one of the most versatile calls out there and you’ll always find one on my lanyard!


My name is Justin Hill. I am 27 years old and reside in Abilene, TX with my wife Britt. My father is to blame for my obsession of the outdoors. At age six I graduated from blind buddy and bird dog to experience hunting first hand. Ever since I have been hooked. I am very blessed to have grown up with a great farming family and many friends right smack in the middle of paradise. Thanks! It is an understatement to say how wonderful and tolerant my wife is in allowing me to pursue my passion 70+ days a year. In Texas there is always something to hunt. Credit for much of my success is due to a close group of hunting buddies. Their shared knowledge and experiences have helped make many great memories. The lessers we hunt are very heavily pressured. It was the decision to be different that led me to Bill Saunders Calls. For three years now Traffic and Reload have had a permanent place on my lanyard. These calls are easy to blow, withstand abuse and always perform. If I am not chasing birds with family or waterfowl obsessed friends you might find me guiding hunts for Webfoot Connection in Rochester, TX. During the off season I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, and anything outdoors. However, my wife may say there is no off season.


My name is Scott Curtsinger, i live in Lubbock, Tx and am the owner of Longneck Outfitters, the premier waterfowl outfitter in the Texas panhandle. I have been hunting ducks, geese, and sandhill cranes for more than 30 years in the this part of texas. I have been guiding hunters all across the US for more than 12 years now and look forward to each season as if it were my first. My favorite birds to hunt are snow geese and sandhill cranes, both are extremely wary and the hardest of all waterfowl to fool. Please fell free to contact me through either one of my websites, or and i will be happy to help you with any questions you may have regarding hunting, calling  or migration status in my part of the country. Hopefully we will see you in our spread soon.


My name is Brian Schreckenbach and I live in Lubbock, which is located in the Texas panhandle. I grew up chasing ducks and snow geese on the Katy prairie on the Texas Coast. When I was in high school I spent time catching redfish and hunting ducks on Corpus Christi bay. I started guiding 8 years ago in West Texas and have been a part owner of Blackfoot Guide Sevice for the last 7. I am one of only a handfull of Americans that own and operate an outfitting business in Alberta, Canada chasing waterfowl. In the winter I also run hunts in Lubbock, Texas for Canada Geese. In the spring and summer I help clients chase Prairie dogs. I spend about 100+ days a year guiding for waterfowl and 50+ days a year for PD’s. I am lucky enough to have hunted 3 different countries and also to have hunted with some real pros like Bill and Dave. I just started competition calling in the “local” events we have here in Texas. I have had the chance to use all kinds of goose and duck calls while waterfowl hunting and Bill Saunders calls are the only ones that stay on my lanyard.


My name is Dean Herman, I’m 15 years old and I live in Weatherford Texas. I have been hunting with my dad ever since I was 3 years old. I grew up chasing lessers and ducks along the front range and eastern parts of Colorado and that’s where I was introduced to waterfowl hunting and contest calling. When I was younger I blew in many calling contests across the country including the World Duck. I recently joined a competitive trap shooting team along with starting to contest call again during the off season.  When it’s not waterfowl season I like to hunt deer, turkey and doves.



I’m an Ogden, Utah native who found the love of waterfowling at a young age chasing ducks and geese with my father. In 28 seasons I have had the opportunity to hunt many states in the lower 48 as well as multiple provinces of Canada. I have used Bill’s calls since 2002 and can honestly say my Traffic has never left my lanyard. Living in Utah with our liberal season and being close to states that offer early season hunts allows me chase waterfowl from September to March, whether it’s honkers and mallards in the corn, to fast flying divers on the Great Salt Lake, to our unique flight of snows we get in the spring. You’ll find me in the field with family, friends or by myself when the regular man’s work allows it. Over the years, like most waterfowlers I have noticed an evolution to my madness in that it’s not just about putting piles on the ground with Bill’s calls, but more about the quality of the hunt and passing on the tradition to my son Max to be a responsible and ethical hunter. Bill’s calls have given me the opportunity to put birds in the face of beginning and veteran hunters alike and I wouldn’t trade this way of life for anything in the world.


My name is Mike Jensen. Born and raised in Ogden, Utah. Mike was struck with the waterfowl bug an early age. Mike’s first hunts began when he was 12 years old with his father and uncle. Only armed with his hip waders, he kept up pace through the deep canals of Bear River Bird Refuge. Soaked and frozen, his spirits stayed high. He shot a green winged teal that afternoon – the fire was burning deep within. Mike’s dad taught him early on about the importance of ethics and fair chase.

The fire continued to burn into his teenage years. There were many days that Mike would skip out on school to head to the nearest marsh with his decoys. His parents were concerned about his grades – if he didn’t start bringing home better scores on his school work, his passion would quickly be put to an end. Mike graduated from Ben Lomond High School in 2000.

After high school Mike was determined to give back to the youth of his hometown. Mike began working at a local Boy Scout camp in the summer – teaching the youth shooting sports. Ten years later, Mike continues to volunteer in Scouting. In 2010, with generous support of the Youth Shooting Sports Alliance and NRA, Mike helped construct one of
the largest Boy Scout shooting sports facilities in the Western United States. Mike’s passion of hunting will definitely be passed to future generations.

During the seasons you can find Mike hunting and training dogs in the wetlands covering Northern Utah. In 2010 Mike helped found Northern Utah Waterfowler, a club and guide service devoted to bring together duck hunters in the Ogden area. Later, in 2012, he helped found Swift Creek Outdoors. He currently resides not far from his boyhood home in Ogden with his very understanding wife Elna, his two daughters Skylee and Kennedy, and son Colten. Mike believes that the dedication and devotion to the sport of waterfowling one puts forth will create memories for a lifetime.


My name is Ryan Barnes and I’m 23 years old. I’ve grown up in Central Utah my entire life. I first started chasing honkers when I was 8 years old. My dad would let me skip school and come with him to shoot geese along the Jordan River. That’s where the addiction to killing geese started. Growing up in a highly competitive home, I got into contest calling, and found myself looking for the best calls to give me an edge both on stage and in the field. That led me to Bill Saunders Calls.

Utah is one of the few states where you have the chance to hunt swans. Since college I have worked as a guide for both swans and honkers. I work full time as a fireplace salesman, and do taxidermy work on the side.

Hunting big honkers is an absolute passion of mine, and Bill Saunders Calls allows me to enjoy that passion even more. Whether I’m trying to fool the resident geese in the valley, or the big Northern migrators, Bill Saunders Calls allows me match the hatch for each scenario.




My name is John Plughoff I’m 20 years old and reside in Moses Lake/Yakima Wa. I am currently attending Big Bend CC where I play baseball and hope to transfer to a university in Eastern Wa. I started hunting and calling geese at age 8 and got my first Bill Saunders Call when I was 14 and since then refuse to go to the field without them. Along side hunting geese, I am an avid bow hunter for all big game as well as Washington State gobblers with my bow as well. The last few years I have been striving to spend every possible day I can in a goose blind. Even on a bad day, the experience of calling and interacting with birds is where the fun is for me. Goose hunting has become my passion and I wouldn’t trade a day in the field for anything. I can accredit a great deal of my knowledge and skills to Bill Saunders and Guide Series Calls and honestly believe if it weren’t for them I wouldn’t have the success I have had. I am very excited to share my passion and knowledge of the sport I love with others. My biggest goal for after/during the rest of my college years is to become a part time guide with an outfitter in Eastern Washington and one day aspire to have operate my own guide service. In the off season, I am eagerly trying to enter the calling scene and I spend a great deal of time chasing steal head with my buddies.


During the season I work in Washington’s Tri-cities at the call shop and as a guide for Big Guns Outfitters. In WA, we have the opportunity to hunt a variety of waterfowl including several different subspecies of canada geese. In the spring I also guide for Big Gun’s, in South Dakota, chasing snow geese. I was born in California and grew up cutting my teeth in the central valley refuges and rice fields hunting ducks, specks and white geese. Since then I have lived in a few other states and have experienced and adapted to waterfowling in those areas.

During the off season I find myself on the West Coast’s contest circuit. I have won the 2009 Nevada state duck, the West coast live speck a few times and some other contests along the way. I look forward to more travel and experience in the future to new contests around the country.

I also work as an outdoor photographer , you can find some of my work in our ads and artwork. Photography brings and new and exciting dimension to the outdoors, giving a tangible memory of the experience. When I am not doing something waterfowl related you can probably find me on the water fly fishing for bass and trout. Weather in the field or on stage, Bill Saunders Calls give me the advantage to success.


My name is Andrew Graham and am currently 13 years old and live in Cheney, Washington. I usually spend about 50-60 days a year chasing geese, ducks, upland, and turkey. I started hunting when I was four, but not carrying a gun until 9. I got hooked my first waterfowl “hunt”, it was a jump shoot in the early season, with literally about 300 ducks on it, I remember picking out the closing duck, and after the dog brought it to me, it was a banded hen.

I’ve been competition calling for just one year now and am off to an ok start. I will always call for Bill Saunders Calls & Gear because I just love the gooseyness in Bill’s calls. In, a couple years, I’m hoping to take myself over to Easton. If you guys are interested in contest calling, I say do it. It’s the greatest way to meet a lot of really helpful people and a great offseason preparation for the upcoming season. When I’m not hunting, I’m playing sports or hanging out with my friends and family.


I live in Burbank, Washington.  I am a farmer full time and own a waterfowl guide business.  I began pursuing waterfowl at an early age tagging along with my uncle shagging birds for him.  As I became of age to start hunting on my own I had to earn my stripes and learn what it took to be sucsessful.  Here in the lower columbia basin the birds are pressured more so than  probably any where in the country.  So with that said, having the right gear is essential.  I have used a wide varity of calls from other companies in the field over the years, and none are more superior than Bill Saunders.  Not a day goes by when I am hunting that you will not see my I-5 killer or my Traffic around my neck.  For ducks, my go to call without question is the triple reed.  Day in and day out Bill Saunders calls will produce results.


My name is Carson Mackey. I live in Selah, Washington and I am a freshman in high school. I have been hunting ever since I can remember and have been hooked from the start. The first duck hunt I ever went on was a jump shoot at some local ponds when I was 6. Needless to say, it hooked me for life. I have consistently hunted ducks and geese throughout the last several years and plan to continue for the rest of my life.

I contest call in the summer and have had a blast with that. I have became acquainted with many people around this part of the country and have made a lot of new friends. When I’m not at a contest, I’m usually running around with my buddy hunting pigeons at the local dairies. I enjoy hunting turkey’s, deer, and elk and will never miss the chance to catch some salmon or steelhead.

I can say that my “go to” calls for waterfowl hunting will have to be Bill Saunders calls. I have used them for a long time and will continue to use them because they work. I would like to thank my dad for getting me started in the sport and John Plughoff for teaching me the tricks and tactics on goose hunting and calling.


My name is Chattan McPherson. I’m 21 years old and I live in Burlington, WA. Right now I’m studying wildlife management at Skagit Valley College, focusing mainly on waterfowl. Waterfowl has became a way of life for me from hunting season to calling and dog competitions and even school, I always have my main focus “waterfowl”. My favorite aspect would have to be hunting and calling, the one hunting partner that you can find with me all of the days I’m in the field is my yellow lab Honker, during season Honker and I get out in the field 4-7 days a week. Here in Skagit Valley we have all of the Canada sub-species, snows, brants, and ducks, Bill Saunders Calls give Honk and I the advantage when hunting to bring those high pressured birds in. When season over you can usually find Honker and I competing as a elite dockdog team. Over just one year in competition Honker and I have earned over 20 regional & national awards for dockdogs, you can even see us on the Outdoor Channel on “Dockdogs Unleashed” in September of 2008.

Since Honker and I started doing well in those competitions, I had always wanted to take up competition calling and thought it would be great way to work on my calling. After my first competition and getting a fourth place in the two man goose, I couldn’t stop. Having the ability to blow a goose call with such control became a main focus. Since then I have become a much more avid competition caller with my G.P. and have been able to take 3rd in WA State Goose Championship.


I grew up on the family wheat and cattle ranch in southeastern Washington State. The family ranch, which is bordered by the lower Snake River, provides great waterfowl hunting. I started hunting at 14 years of age, going out with family and friends. When nobody could be found to go hunting I took Grandpa’s old paper mache decoys, cardboard silhouettes, and two dozen plastic half shells. I spent my days perfecting my skills and learning about waterfowl and their habits.

I now run the day to day operations on the family ranch, where I live with my wife and three children. After guiding five years for a local waterfowl outfitter, I started my own waterfowl guide business (Fishhook Ranch Outfitters LLC). I have enjoyed including my family in this venture. My children love to come along with me to scout and hunt. I believe that my family and families like mine are imperative to the future of this sport.

I spend 100+ days in the field, hunting, scouting, and working on habitat development and volunteering time to organizations like Ducks Unlimited, Camp Patriod (an organization for disabled veterans) and Washington State Hunter Education Program.” I am also on the men’s ministries leadership team for my local church, where I help organize our annual wild game dinner.

This is my way of giving back to a sport that I enjoy so much


My name is Jesse Hurley I have live in the small western Washingtontown of Buckley my whole life, where I started hunting at the age of 9. I am lucky enough to call the pacific northwest my home, in a state where I can enjoy hunting all sorts of animals such as deer, elk, bear, turkey, ducks and geese. I started my hunting career going after black bear and blacktail deer, and at the age of 11 I went on my first duck hunt and have been hooked ever since. In my mind there is nothing that gives me the goose bumps more then a flock of mallards or honkers working your decoys. I started learning how to blow a goose call with the Bill Saunders Reload and I have been hooked ever since. I don’t think there is a more reliable line of calls and gear out there. Someday in the future I would like to be working for a guide service in eastern Washington chasing ducks and geese.


My name is Kyle Lopez and I live in Kennewick, WA. I was introduced to waterfowl hunting in high school. None of my family hunted so I relied on friends to teach me everything at the time. For my 18th birthday my dad took me out to buy my first shotgun and I was hooked ever since. I appreciate the scout as much or even more than the hunt. The work that goes into it has really given me new perspective on hunting waterfowl. Out of Waterfowl season, I archery hunt in September and play golf during the summer. I also just got my first true bird dog and I am hoping to break into hunt trials during the offseason. Training a dog has presented a whole new set of fun challenges.

My very first goose call was a Bill Saunders Reload. I now use a Red Zone and EZ7 for my main calls. I truly believe Bill’s calls are the best on the market and I will always support what I believe in.


My name is Matt Tuttle Hunting has been a family tradition for generations and I followed in my father’s footsteps. From the moment I shot my first duck, with a single shot 20 gauge that took me weeks to save for, I was hooked. The Pacific Flyway has provided me with a lifetime of memories, from shooting mallards over a flooded corn field to pass shooting divers on the Columbia River. When I’m not hunting waterfowl, I am training retrievers and preparing for AKC hunt tests. I own and operate Copperwood Kennels, we specialize in bringing great retrievers to the Pacific Northwest.




My name is Randy Southard and I live in the small town of Black Creek, WI with my two boys Wyatt and Ben and awesome wife Beth. My passion is to finish geese and to take my kids honker hunting. I typically hunt 5-6 days a week throughout the entire season. Along with constantly chasing them here in Wisconsin I venture north to Canada 2 or 3 trips a Fall and try to sneak a trip in out west to get the heavies. Spending as many days in the field as possible learning from the birds is what really matters to me. The off season, if there really is one, finds me trying to help out with duck rescue and goose banding with a local duck club. I also love to chase those fresh water sharks, northern pike, with a fly rod.



My name is Kyle Fagler, I’m from southeastern Wyoming. I grew up along the Front Range of Colorado and have been guiding duck, goose and crane hunts for fourteen years now full time. I enjoy the atmosphere of the waterfowl industry and meeting new people all the time. I credit my Bill Saunders calls to a lot of success with those people as they are truly dependable. From Wyoming down to Texas and in parts of Nebraska is where you will find me during hunting seasons. When it’s not hunting season I am spending the off months training hunting labs at home for my own business Guides Choice Retrievers along with being a dad to my daughter Lauren who has been my right hand man at her young age.


My name is Aaron Garcia. I am from a small town in Southeast Wyoming called Torrington. Not many people think of Wyoming as a waterfowl hunting destination. But I can testify that it is a very over looked place to hunt both big and small honkers as well as ducks. Together, with my beautiful wife, Jennifer, we own and operate a guide service in Torrington along the North Platte River.

Although, as a kid, all I did was hunt big game. Once I was introduced to waterfowl hunting, I have never looked back. I still enjoy hunting big game but my year is consumed with the upcoming waterfowl season year after year.

Throughout my journey in waterfowl hunting, I have been lucky enough to win the Wyoming State Goose Calling Contest, but even more than that, I have made lifelong friends from all over the map.

I have been apart of other organizations, but by far the performance and quality of Bill Saunders products surpasses the rest. I am honored to be apart of such talented and skilled men/women that make up a great team that is found only on Bill Saunders Staff.


Robb Nicolay resides in Torrington, Wyoming where he is a waterfowl guide for High Plains Wingshooters and is also a 7thgrade social studies teacher.  Robb has been guiding in Torrington, Wyoming since 2005.

Robb became addicted to waterfowl hunting at the age of 7when he picked up his first duck call.  Since that day, Robb has competed in several calling contests across the country.  In 2009 and in 2010, Robb was fortunate enough to win the Wyoming State Goose Calling Championships. Robb also captured his first duck calling contest victory in 2005 by winning the CabelasOpen Duck Calling Contest.

Robb enjoys introducing new people to this great sport especially youth.  Robb enjoys sharing the goose pit with friends and family, especially his father Larry and son Tyler. When Robb is not in the field, he can be found following his children around watching them compete in sports. Robb is truly blessed with his wife of 15 years (Tara) and his two children Tyler (12) and Regan(7).
