Blake Hodge and The Duck Commander visit Schofield's

Schofield's Hardware in Florence hosted a couple of duck-calling champions on Oct. 8th. Blake Hodge, the teenaged duck-calling phenom from Lancaster and Phil Robertson, the Duck Commander were both on hand to sign autographs and talk to fans about duck calling and the gear they use. Federal Ammo, Drake, Winn Tuck, and Benelli all had promotions going on, and Cooks for Christ served up a chicken bog.

Hodge is no stranger to pressure when it comes to duck-calling. He's won numerous awards, including the N.C. State Championship in Canada Goose calling (adult division), and the N.C. State Championship in the Youth Main Street Duck calling competition. But he felt a few butterflies in his stomach at Schofield's Hardware when he was surprised to hear The Duck Commander introduce him to the crowd, then ask him to put on a calling display.

After Hodge's calling demo, the Duck Commander gave one of his signature inspirational speeches. Then it was back to signing autographs and promoting hunting and calling gear. Mud Flap, the radio personality for Florence radio station Eagle 92.9, did a live broadcast with Hodge while shoppers stocked up for hunting season.
