Hunter’s Specialties Pro Staff Member Eddie Salter
Cedar Rapids, IA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Eddie Salter, of Evergreen, Alabama, began hunting at the age of eight. Using the techniques learned from his father and grandfather, he managed to take his first turkey at the age of 10. That early success has led to a 45-year love affair with the sport of turkey hunting.
He began competitive turkey calling in 1981 and has won two World Open Turkey Calling Championships, six Alabama State Championships, and seven Southeastern Open Calling Championships.
Eddie is an accomplished deer hunter with a number of trophy bucks to his credit.
In 1985, he created Eddie Salter Calls, Inc., producing a complete line of turkey and deer calls, scents, and hunting videos. He sold the company in 1994, joining the Hunter’s Specialties Pro Staff shortly after.
Eddie has appeared on Hunter’s Specialties Outdoors TV on The Outdoor Channel, along with PrimeTime Bucks and Cutt’n & Strutt’n DVD series, ESPN, and ABC’s 20/20 show among others.
Eddie travels the country giving deer and turkey seminars at stores, conferences, and churches, sharing his knowledge and southern humor.
