It may have been just for show, but it’s a good thing he had the call with him that day.

The barber in Cadiz
Harold Knight was born and raised in Land Between the Lakes
“Hunting was a big part of my upbringing – squirrel hunting, some deer, turkey, quail and rabbit,” Knight said. “I lived there until I was 20 years old, then [Tennessee Valley Authority] came in, condemned the land and moved everybody out.”
Knight was a student at Golden Pond School. His hunting experience in the LBL area paid off as he later became a multi-time national calling contest champion and a goose call world champion.
Eventually, Knight became a barber in Cadiz, and his shop was a big part of the birth of Knight & Hale Game Calls.
