I’ve been around and involved in hunting since I can remember. I have a great passion for the outdoors and take every opportunity I get to be out in it. I have to thank my grandpa Dick Scheidt teaching me everything I know about the outdoors. I enjoy turkey and deer hunting. Turkey hunting being at the top of the list.

I retired from UDOT after 35 years, worked at Barnes Bullets and have been on the Quaker Boy Pro Staff since 1996. I have been a member of the National Wild Turkey federation for over 27 years and currently serve as the state chapter president. I love being in the outdoors whether it’s hunting, riding horses, ATVs or UTVs and especially like being out with my family.
I enjoy teaching people to call wildlife. I have been calling coyotes for over 40 years. I love calling elk and turkeys and to teach something I love is a great thing. I do love riding my Harley around our great country to see the amazing things in all the places I have been so far, covering 15 states and some of Canada. My biggest accomplishment as a pro staffer was to teach an older man how to use a mouth call after he said he had tried for 15 years and I taught him in 15 minutes. Teaching youth how to call has been very satisfying too!

Terry Wunderle

Illinois, US

Pursuits: Turkey, Whitetail Deer, Duck

Memberships: NWTF

Terry Wunderle is a professional archery coach and outdoor writer who has been with Quaker Boy for over 20 years. The students he has coached have won over 350 national and world championships. Many of his winning coaching techniques are included in his book, Archery: Think and Shoot Like a Champion found on his website,

Since a very young boy, Terry has actively pursued his passion for hunting and fishing. Over the years he has harvested more than 70 trophy whitetails that have scored between 120 to 185 points. Terry is also an avid turkey and duck hunter. At the age of 16, he won the junior and senior divisions of the Midwest Duck Calling Championship. Being a national and world champion archer, most of his hunting is done with a bow. Terry credits Quaker Boy calls for helping him harvest a multitude of wild game.

Terry’s favorite spring turkey calls are Old Boss Hen, World Champ Mouth Call, and the “best box call ever made,” the Grand Old Master. When deer hunting, he always carries the Odorless Wind Check, Brawler Buck Call, and the Bleat-in-Heat. When hunting in the evening and it’s time to leave the blind but the field is full of deer, he finds a great call to have is the Coyote Howler. Without divulging your human presence, a few calls on it can quickly send the deer running.

Larry Skinkle

Ontario, CA

Pursuits: Turkey, Deer, Duck, Goose, Moose

Memberships: Ontario federation of anglers and Hunters, St. Joseph Island Hunters and Anglers

Larry grew up on a farm in southern Ontario. Like any young farm boy at that time he learned to shoot by hunting ground hogs. As a teenager, Larry spent a lot of time with friends and family hunting whitetail deer, waterfowl and rabbits. Upon graduating from the University of Toronto in Forestry in 1973 Larry spent 35 years in various locations in Northern Ontario and Northern Alberta. Hunting continued to be a constant but the quarry changed a little to include moose. Whitetail and waterfowl were still pursued when time permitted. Getting married, raising a family (boy and girl) and making a career in forest management all cut into precious hunting time. With the successful re-introduction of wild turkeys into Ontario Larry took up hunting the big birds about 1996. Wild turkey, moose and whitetail, in that order are the quarry of choice now. Although opportunities to pursue other species are rarely passed up. Now officially retired in Echo Bay, Ontario (Sault Ste. Marie area) Larry has more time to pursue his favorite game species in more locations with many of those special friends and family members.

*Wild Turkey Tip* When hunting wild turkeys we quite often hunt in pairs. When setting up, one partner will be set up in front with decoys and be prepared to shoot, while the other partner will go behind the shooter about 10 to 20 yards and call. We make sure that we are well-concealed but in each other’s line of sight and establish hand signals to communicate if there are birds coming and whether to continue calling. This has proven to be a very effective technique to fool the wary Tom turkey.

Grant Farmer

South Dakota, US

Pursuits: Whitetail, Mule Deer, Turkey, Duck, Pheasant

Memberships: NWTF, Pheasants Forever

My earliest memories are of hunting camp in Pope County Illinois, seeing everyone with their deer and living vicariously through them. My dad always seemed to get the biggest buck every year. Once I was old enough to go there was no holding me back. Whether it was the annual long weekend before Thanksgiving, or as soon as classes got out I’d be chasing whitetail. It’s an obsession and tradition that was passed down to me, and I will continue to pass down. Once I moved to South Dakota my passion for deer became greater than ever, but I found myself hunting with my college teammates for ducks and pheasants more and more. I eventually got to experience my first mule deer hunt, and went turkey hunting with the same buddies. Now I put time aside for each, even though whitetail is still my #1. When I’m not hunting you can find me on a lake fishing bass tournaments, or in the gym training for the next hunting season.
