Eddie Salter
Eddie Salter, of Evergreen, Alabama, began hunting at the age of eight. Using the techniques learned from his father and grandfather, he managed to take his first turkey at the age of 10. That early success has led to a 45-year love affair with the sport of turkey hunting. He began competitive turkey calling in 1981 and has won two World Open Turkey Calling Championships, six Alabama State Championships, and seven Southeastern Open Calling Championships. Eddie is an accomplished deer hunter with a number of trophy bucks to his credit. In 1985, he created Eddie Salter Calls, Inc., producing a complete line of turkey and deer calls, scents, and hunting videos. He sold the company in 1994, joining the Hunter's Specialties Pro Staff shortly after. In 2009 Eddie was inducted into the Legends of the Outdoors National Hall of Fame. Eddie has appeared on the Hunter's Specialties Outdoors TV show on The Outdoor Channel, along with PrimeTime Bucks and Cutt'n & Strutt'n DVD series, ESPN, and ABC's 20/20 show among others. Eddie travels the country giving deer and turkey seminars at stores, conferences, and churches, sharing his knowledge and southern humor.

Eddie Salter, a 2-time World Open Turkey Calling champion, is the special guest speaker for this weekend’s Arkansas Sportshow at the Convocation Center.
JONESBORO â€" Two-time World Open Turkey Calling champion Eddie Salter is the special guest speaker for this year’s Arkansas Sportshow, and the Alabama native is ready to talk turkey. Salter is a well-known outdoorsman who has 35 years of hunting experience. He also has won six Alabama turkey calling state championships and seven Southeastern Open calling championships. For the past 15 years Salter has been a Pro Staff member for Hunter’s Specialties, the world’s largest maker of hunting accessories. He is the host for the popular hunting television show Hunter’s Specialties Outdoors and he has been featured on ESPN, The Outdoors Channel and even ABC’s 20/20. Salter made his name in the hunting world as a young man selling homemade animal calls out of his barber shop. He won the 1985 World Open Turkey Calling championship. Eventually he quit his barbering job and become a full-time call maker, starting Eddie Salter Calls, Inc., in 1985, producing a line of deer and turkey calls along with hunting videos and scents. Salter was recently named to the Legends of the Outdoors National Hall of Fame. He said he’s very excited about attending this year’s Arkansas Sportshow at the Convocation Center. He is scheduled to conduct seminars Friday at 7 p.m.; Saturday at 11 a.m., 2 p.m., and 6 p.m.; and Sunday at 2 p.m. “I’m going to have plenty to talk about and we’re not going to limit it to just turkey,†Salter said. “We’ll be talking about some deer a little bit if they want to talk some deer. “Primarily I’m just going to be talking turkey hunting and how to make different calls and what calls I like best, and more or less my theory on calling turkeys.†Although it will be his first time at the Sportshow, Salter said he’s looking forward to seeing some familiar faces he’s hunted with in Arkansas in the past. “I feel like it’s going to be a great show. It’s the first time I’ve done this show and any time you’re in the South, you’ve got a lot of good hunters and a lot of good stories and that’s what hunting is about,†he said. First turkey Salter created his first homemade turkey call and killed his first turkey at age 10. From that moment he was hooked on hunting, going after everything from rabbits to quail. As a kid it was difficult for Salter to find information about becoming a better turkey hunter, and he got into contests as a way to meet some of the top turkey callers in Alabama. His mother actually gave him the idea of listening to turkey and then trying to repeat what he heard as a way to hunt them. “She realized if I would listen to the turkeys and hear them call and pattern myself after the turkeys, that would probably be the best lesson I could get,†he said. “Now you can get a DVD or watch TV shows and you can learn overnight.†Salter said he learned a lot from men like the late Ben Rogers Lee, who won five World Turkey Calling Championships, and he still uses that knowledge today when he’s hunting or talking about hunting. Salter has killed a turkey in 30 states. He’s planning to kill one in each of the 49 states they live in before he’s done. Record grand slam One of the things Salter will discuss at the Sportshow is his record-breaking grand slam from last year. “That was kind of a highlight of turkey hunting for me the last few years,†he said. A grand slam is killing all four sub-species of turkey in the United States. Although it wasn’t his first, Salter did it in only four days, killing birds in Florida, Alabama, Oklahoma and Colorado. For those interested in completing a grand slam of their own, Salter said he’ll have plenty of tips. “Maybe some of the guys want to hunt a slam and I’ve got plenty of numbers I can give them if they want to go hunt some of the areas I’ve hunted,†he said. Salter has hunted in Arkansas before, and said he loves the beauty of Northeast Arkansas. “Arkansas is a beautiful state, especially in that Northeast corner,†he said. While he’s proud of what he’s accomplished in hunting, Salter said he’ll never forget why he started calling in contests in the first place. “I didn’t get into turkey calling contests to say that I was a world champion or that I won a contest. I wanted to be the best turkey hunter that I could be,†he said.
