The North American Duck and Goose Calling Championships will be held March 6-7, at Moline’s Ramada Inn and Conference Center and will include three sanctioned Regional qualifying events for the World Duck Calling Championship in Stuttgart, Ark.

The contests are the North American Regional, Illinois River Regional and Northern Illinois Regional.

The March 6 schedule includes duck calling in two age divisions, Juniors (12 and under), Intermediates (13-16), plus two sanctioned regional duck calling contests. 

March 7 will feature goose calling in two youth age divisions, Juniors (12 and under), Intermediates (13-16), the Northern IL Regional duck and the IWA Masters Goose Calling Championship.
