Sure-Shot Game Calls

Honoring the Memory of Legendary World Champion Duck Caller, Inventor and Founder of Sure-Shot

Groves, TX – (January 18, 2019) – Sure-Shot Game Calls is celebrating its 60th anniversary and honoring the life and memory of its founder James “Cowboy” Fernandez with a special limited-edition Cowboy Commemorative Series Duck Call. Each of these collectable award-winning Yentzen Classic double reed calls are engraved with Cowboy’s signature and the first 100 purchased will be packaged in a box personally autographed by the legend himself. The Cowboy Commemorative calls will be released to the public in Summer 2019. Calls will be available at retailers like Mack’s Prairie Wings, Rogers Sporting Goods and sureshotgamecalls.com. Visit sureshotgamecalls.com for the official release date and pricing updates.

Co-founder, inventor and world champion caller James “Cowboy” Fernandez passed away in August 2018 at age 86. Cowboy worked with George Yentzen to design and patent the first double reed duck call in 1950 and the triple reed in 1968. Cowboy was the first Texan and first double reed contestant to win the Worlds Duck Calling Championship in Stuttgart, Arkansas in 1959 using the double reed Yentzen Caller. And others followed, winning World Championships with this Yentzen Caller as well. He was well known for his calling prowess and won numerous regional and international competitions. Fernandez was inducted into the Legends of the Outdoors Hall of Fame in 2014.

“When Cowboy passed, we wanted to do something to honor him,” explained Charlie Holder, current owner of Sure-Shot Game Calls. “He was so proud of this company he co-founded 60 years ago. We thought this would be a fitting tribute to honor him and the call that he designed and helped him become a world champion.”

About Sure-Shot Game Calls:

The 60+year old company was founded by James “Cowboy” Fernandez and George Yentzen in Nederland, Texas in the early 1940s. After many prototypes, their first product, the 1950 Yentzen Caller, became the very first patented double-reed duck call introduced to the marketplace. In 1959, Cowboy Fernandez entered several duck calling competitions and both he and the Yentzen Caller became world class champions. Charlie Holder purchased the company in 2011. Today, Sure-Shot offers over two dozen game calls for waterfowl, predator, deer and turkey.

New Pedal Craft & New Brand from Paddlesport Veterans Introducing the 360° / Angler from Blue Sky Boatworks

Blud Sky BW logo

SPARTA, TN (July 21, 2017) Jackson Kayak today announced the company will debut a new boat brand and the brand’s first model at Outdoor Retailer next week. Blue Sky Boatworks emerged from collaboration between Jackson Kayak’s development team and paddlesports veteran Andy Zimmerman and his design team, which includes multi-hull guru Jim Brown.

Built on a catamaran platform and manufactured by Jackson Kayak at its Tennessee facility, Blue Sky Boatworks will launch with the new 360° / Angler. Consumers will immediately notice the ease of entering the stable craft. Then they will also notice the boat’s efficiency and how quickly and comfortably they can cover water and pursue their passion – fishing, hunting, birding, photography, camping, fitness – whatever they love doing on the water.

The combination of these features makes the new 360° / Angler unique in the marketplace:

  • Effortless speed with Flex Drive system. Three-blade prop and 12:1 crank ratio equals more performance with less energy
  • Amazing stability with twin hull design. Stand, turn and walk bow to stern.
  • Personalized comfort with an ergonomic 360° swivel seat that can be raised and lowered and positioned for optimal positioning for pedaling.
  • Unmatched versatility with 34 square feet of deck space and multiple gear tracks to customize for pursuits.
  • Unique portability with quick disassembly. Trailer it, drop it in the back of a pick up or car-top it.
  • Flexible power. Easily converts from Flex Drive pedal to Flex Drive electric.
  • Convenient left-hand and right-hand rudder control at the seat.
  • Molded bow hatches for gear and rod storage or to accommodate batteries for fish finders, etc.
  • Bow frame extended to support optional front porch. Designed for extra gear and/or a dog, it can also support the user’s weight for sight fishing or landing a fish.
  • Ample space behind the seat to accommodate an Orion Cooler, tackle storage and platform for Power Pole® anchors.
  • Wheel assist is bungeed behind seat so it won’t drop in the water. Vertical post has extra gear track for mounting rod holders and transducer.

“We’re excited about this new concept and thrilled with the reception this prototype has received,” said Jackson Kayak’s Joe Pulliam. “We think when the industry sees it and demos it at Outdoor Retailer; Blue Sky Boatworks is going to create a lot of buzz.”

About Blue Sky Boatworks

fd_rustic_white_tagline

HOUSTON, TX (May 2017) – FireDisc® is the perfect Father’s Day gift for the Dad who likes to fish, hunt, camp, RV, tailgate or just recreate outdoors.

Better yet, FireDisc will cook virtually everything. It operates on a readily-available propane canister, fires up fast (no waiting for charcoal), cooks for plenty of people, seasons like a cast iron skillet and cleans up quickly with just water.

FireDisc is massively overbuilt, incredibly easy to use and is a unique gift that any Dad will use all year around ­– and for years to come.

FireDisc President Griff Jaggard explains, “Everyone loves how easy FireDisc is to haul, set up, cook on and clean. It’s perfect for cooking in the great outdoors or even in your back yard.”

FireDiscs come in deep or shallow, short or tall, black or red and are available starting at $279.99 at firedisccookers.com and at select outdoor retailers and hardware stores across the country.
