COLUSA, Calif. – Aug. 17, 2012 – Ducks Unlimited is "calling" the public to come enjoy the 2012 California State Championship Duck Calling Competition on Saturday, Aug. 25, at Kittles Outdoor & Sport Co., in Colusa. DU is a proud sponsor of the annual event, which attracts dozens of callers, all vying for the title of state champion.

The public is invited to this very popular, family friendly event where men, women and children will showcase their duck- and goose-calling skills. The winner of this state-sanctioned event will go on to compete for the World Championship in Stuttgart, Ark., on Nov. 24. Registration for competitors begins at 8:30 a.m.

This is the second consecutive year Kittles will host the calling event, which includes several levels of competition: Junior, Intermediate Duck and Goose, Open Speck, California State Duck and Two Man. In addition to the calling, there will be a huge vendor tradeshow, Tommy’s BBQ concession, new product displays, local artists, wildlife exhibits and a variety of educational items showcasing sportsmen and the great outdoors.
