In mid 2011 Terry met SSG Harvel, a Motor Pool Sgt. in charge of Heavy Equipment at FOB Fenty, Jalalabad Afghanistan.
He soon found that they both shared a common interest in duck hunting.
According to SSG Harvel this is something that he truly loves, and has been hunting the majority of his life in the midwest states.
Knowing SSG Harvel's love for hunting, Terry decided to look up Art Beauchamp online to see what we had to offer. He was excited to see all the calls
available and decided to place an order for four calls.
He requested special engraving of "OEF 2012" for Operation Enduring Freedom 2012
Rick Kagerer was happy to fill the order and took special care in preparing Oak Barrels that would showcase the engraving. After having the barrels engraved,
Rick sanded and finished the calls by hand. He dressed them up with double lanyards and promotional duck and goose bands that he had on hand and sent them off
Thank you to the Men and Women of our Armed Forces
The calls are absolutely beautiful and they performed with excellence not to mention the Engraving was perfect! I could not find any better made calls in the world. Even SSG Harvel fell in love with the calls. They blow with ease, and the sound is perfect. SSG Harvel and myself say thank's to all of you guy's there in Flint, MI and it has been a pleasure buying from you, with no hassles at all. Keep up the good work, and I'll see you one day when this is all over with.
Your friend in Afghanistan.
We at Art Beauchamp Game Call Company would like to personally thank Terry Damron, SSG Harvel and all of the men and women of our Armed Forces for your
dedication and service to our country.
Lasting Quality and Service
We recently received this message from a long time customer:
Last year I lost my two favorite Art Beauchamp duck calls and my back pack, while hunting in a corn field. To my delight/horror I found my backpack after it had survived being disked, plowed and partially buried for the year. Needless to say, the pack was damaged beyond use and the two duck calls were in pretty tough shape.
Since I have had these calls for 20 plus years, I did not want to discard them. I dropped both of them off to Rick at Art Beauchamp Call Company and in about a week he returned to me my cherished calls. They were in impeccable condition and I simply cannot thank him enough for his timely and professional service. With luck, my calls will last another 20 years and unlike the plastic and acrylic calls so popular today, I will be proud to hand these down to my son. Thanks again for making such a wonderful product and for refurbishing my two calls.
Thanks again for all your help Rick!
