World Team Challenge:
Scenario 1 (Early Season in Minnesota): Hunting with a buddy at a field, surrounded by small woodlots, there are gobblers sounding off in several directions. A group of Jakes are the first to fly down and come in to your hen talk. They're in a fighting mood though and begin to squabble over dominance. The Jake fight attracts the attention of a couple of old Toms that come charging in with thunderous gobbles. The Jakes high tail it, “putting” as they retreat. The 2 Toms then turn their attention to your setup, strutting and drumming while you and your buddy prepare for a double!

Scenario 2 (Late Afternoon in Alabama): After a long day of running n' gunning, you finally elicit a gobble from a distant Tom. You move in and begin some aggressive calling, adding in a few calls from your trusty box call in order to sound like multiple hens. The Tom has answered everything but it's been an hour and the Tom is still holding his ground. You decide to circle around for a new setup and switch to a wingbone call for a different sound. Before you begin calling, you first get him to shock gobble to a crow call to confirm you haven't bumped the Tom from the area. The Tom sounds off to the crow call so you sit down and begin making soft yelps and clucks from the wingbone. Moments later, increasingly louder drumming can be heard.

Scenario 3 (Late Morning in South Carolina): The sun's warmth and the Chickadee's song are lulling you to sleep. You decide to do one more series of yelps before taking a quick nap. Almost immediately, a young hen starts berating you with loud assembly yelps, cuts and aggressive purrs. She might have a gobbler in tow so you play along, answering her word for word. She ends up being alone but the commotion has caught to attention of a satellite Tom and he comes barreling in to the calls, gobbling his head off the entire way.

Note: Teams will be scored on realistic vocalizations and how well they paint a picture of each scenario.
