Hunter’s Specialties Pro Staff Member Allen Morris
Cedar Rapids, IA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Allen Morris of Springville, Utah grew up with a love of hunting, fishing, and the outdoors. As a youngster he could be found with his dog and BB gun, chasing animals around his family’s dairy farm.
At the age of 15 Morris’ father read an article in Outdoor Life about Wayne Carlton and his ability to call elk using a turkey diaphragm call. His father called Wayne that very day. “My life was changed forever,” said Morris. “After some one-on-one instruction over the phone from Wayne, no more than three days later I was calling elk in the field myself. I realized I had a unique ability to call, mimicking the sounds elk made.” Al’s talent for calling and hunting elk led to a 15-year career as a professional guide.
Morris has also had huge success in elk calling contests. He won the 1999, 2003 and 2009 Best of the West Utah State Bugling Championship and was the 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2009 Northeast Elk Calling Champion. Morris has several second and third-place finishes at the World Elk Calling Championship and took the first place title in 2009. He also is skilled in calling other game, winning the World Coyote Calling Championship in 1997, 2007 and 2008, becoming the only three time winner in the competition.
Morris has been featured as a guide on several outdoor television shows, including Wayne Pearson’s Ultimate Outdoors, Cabela’s Sportsman’s Quest, Bushnell’s Secrets of the Hunt, Babe Winkelman’s Outdoor Secrets, and Mossy Oak’s Hunting the Country, Benelli’s American Safari, Jim Zumbo Outdoors, as well as Hunter’s Specialties’ TV Show, Hunter’s Specialties Outdoors, and on the Operation Predator 2 through 6 and Primetime Bulls 2 through 7 videos.
As a member of the H.S. Pro Staff, Morris shares his knowledge of elk and predator hunting at personal appearances and in the H.S. videos and television show.
