My name is Mike McInerney. I have been waterfowl hunting around Minnesota for about 13 years with various trips to North and South Dakota and I love everything about it. It’s fun going with friends walking through the woods to find a pothole filled with green heads or driving around in the truck looking for a field loaded with geese. To me, it’s all about the camaraderie, being with your friends, family, and new friendships. Waking up at 3 in the morning, getting all the decoys set, and hearing those wings whistle right before shooting hours. My favorite sound is those wings back peddling right before you say “take ’em.” My favorite species to hunt is geese. It’s fun talking back and forth with them and watching them lock up about 300 yards away and just coast in. Looking through my blind and getting an itchy trigger finger and picking out the one you want to rip. I started my own call company in 2014 called Showdown Game Calls, I am a one man show doing what I love to do as a hobby for now. If I’m not waterfowl hunting I’m usually in a deer stand hoping to put some meat on the table. I also love fishing, four wheeling, playing softball, and going up to our family cabin. None of this would be possible without my wife and my family. I want to thank them for letting me pursue one my greatest passions and that is the love for the outdoors.
