Drake Elite Team Member Todd Copley Wins 2010 World Duck Champion of Champions Calling Contest
Olive Branch, MS –-(Ammoland.com)- Todd Copley, Drake Waterfowl Elite Team Member, earned the 2010 World Duck Champion of Champions title this past Saturday in Stuttgart, AR. Stuttgart is home to the World Duck Calling Championships, held on Thanksgiving weekend as part of the Wings Over The Prairie Festival.
The prestigious Champion of Champions contest is held just every five years and is open only to previous winners of the World Duck Calling title.
The Champion of Champions competition is truly a battle of the best of the best. Todd, who won the World Duck title in 2003, has been competing in the contest since 1999 and has consistently been in the top 3 places.
When asked about his first reaction to being crowned the winner, Todd said “This is bittersweet. It's the best day of my life and the worst day of my life because I don't get to sit back there any more.”
Winning the Champion of Champions title automatically retires a caller from competing in the World Duck Calling Contest in Stuttgart. The only other way to reach a “retired” status is to win three World Duck Calling Championships. Todd Copley was a fan favorite and received a huge ovation from the crowd when he was announced the winner.
Everyone at Drake Waterfowl is proud of Todd and will miss seeing him compete at the World's, but Todd is influential in other state and regional calling contests and will continue to be a great representative for duck hunting and competition calling.
When we set out to create the best waterfowl hunting clothes on the market nearly four years ago, we knew immediately that a standard warm coat wouldn’t be near enough to impress the hard-core hunters that spend day after day in the field. We needed something to meet every condition a hunter can face… we needed a “SYSTEM”. This was the beginning of Drake Waterfowl Systems. Visit: www.drakewaterfowl.com
