The pursuit of waterfowl has been the focal point of J.J. Kent?s life since his first duck hunt he went on when he was just a young boy. The sight of teal buzzing the decoys is still fresh in his mind that first misty September morning in Sulpher Springs, Texas.
Since then J.J. has mastered the art of calling, decoying and hunting ducks and Geese all across Texas and surrounding States. As a high school kid he was torn between high school athletics and being out in the timber chasing mallards. Then as he entered Texas Tech University he studied wildlife and took every class that the University offered that dealt with Waterfowl. He traveled to several Wildlife Management Areas in different states to study waterfowl. Of course being in the panhandle of Texas offered some of the finest waterfowl hunting in the state! J.J. found himself in the field almost more than in the classroom!
After graduating and moving back to Dallas, J.J. began to compete in Duck Calling competitions. He has consistently found himself in the top 5 duck callers in the State of Texas, and has won several non-sanctioned competitions. He has been selected as a member of the Z-Unit for Zink calls.. He is also on the Pro Staff for Mossy Oak Waterfowl, Avian X, DT Systems, Motor Guide Trolling Motors, and Yeti Coolers. Being a Pro-staff member of these companies, J.J. travels to different locations giving seminars to youth and adults alike. J.J. is passionate about waterfowl, and the outdoors, and is an avid member of Delta Waterfowl and Ducks Unlimited; he has volunteered his time and knowledge to pass on the heritage of the sport.
