Have you ever heard of being a turkey calling champion?

Well it’s a real thing and local turkey caller Kenny Weiss Jr. is one of them.

It's something that has been in his nature since he could walk.

"Whenever I was two years old dad used to have hunting shows on tv,” said Kenny Jr., a turkey calling champion.

Gobbling up the wins

"I was watching a turkey video on tv. He had just started walking,” said Kenny Sr., Kenny’s dad.

"Like a kid always does gets right in front of the tv when someone was trying to watch,” said Kenny Jr.

"I didn’t realize the turkey was strutting on tv and here he was mocking the turkey,” said Kenny Sr.

Clearly, he is pretty good at it because he has won more than 25 state titles and even a few national championships.

This weekend Kenny Jr will compete in the World Turkey Calling Championships right here in the Port City and no matter what the final call his dad will always be proud.
