Born and raised in Southeast Missouri, Walter Parrott found his love for hunting and fishing at a very early age. What started out as putting food on the table turned into a lifelong passion that Walter enjoys teaching others to carry on a great tradition. Walter has many happy hunting memories with his Dad, Melvin Parrott, and will always thank him for the knowledge of hunting that he passed along to him. Walter mastered his turkey calling by listening to the turkeys they had in their yard and mocking them. He also spent time talking to the older hunters and getting their views and ideas.
Walter started competitive turkey calling in 1978. He is the only person to win every major turkey calling contest. Walter is a 5-time Grand National Champion, 2-time Team Calling Grand National Champion, Grand National Champion of Champions, World Champion in Open & Friction Divisions & World Team Champion, 16-time U.S. Open Champion (Open division, Friction & Champion of Champions) and has won The Masters, Mid-America Open and many state and local competitions.
