I would personally like to share a story
of a young man that is from North Carolina by the name of
His Father "Doc" Heine and
Austin has been hunting with me for quite some time. I can remember when Austin
was about "7 years old" hunting with his Dad and sitting on his Dad's
knee ALL DAY LONG in a Deer stand waiting for the elusive whitetail. They
would actually sit ALL DAY.....from day light till dark.
One evening after picking them up, Lil
Austin was so excited he couldn't even talk.......I asked him what was
wrong.....he replied....Uncle Charlie "I SAW A MOUNTAIN LION"
!!!.....I asked him....WHY IN THE WORLD DIDN'T YOU KILL HIM......he immediately
replied.....My Dad told me that we were here to Deer hunt !!!!
I knew then, that Austin was surely on the
right path of the Outdoors with Dad as his Coach !!
They continued to hunt with me but their
true passion was Turkey hunting and Quail hunting. One year, we were sitting at
the dinner table and "Doc" said, You ought to here Austin call Turkeys
with a coffee stir straw.......I thought something was not right with those
fellers and Austin pulled out his straw (actually had a pocket full of them) and
started making this sound that actually sounded REAL, BETTER THAN ANY CALL I
HAVE EVER HEARD !
Anyway, the next morning they went hunting
and needless to say, they were back at camp in less than an hour and they had
their Gobblers and were very excited.

"National Wild Turkey
Thank You NWTF and keep up the good work
Austin Heine (right) and Ethan Campbell
are both members of the
State College Chapter at North Carolina
Hometown: Fayetteville, N.C.
Hometown Chapters: Sandhills Chapter in Fayetteville and State College Chapter
Background: In 2009, Austin received a $250 scholarship from the Sandhills
Chapter. He is now a sophomore at North Carolina State University, pursuing a
double major in forest management and wildlife management. When not at
college, Austin lives in Fayetteville with his parents, Jim and Barbara, and
Q&A with Austin Heine
This college student has remained an active NWTF member
away at college, as well as at home. He runs a mean coffee straw, too.
NWTF: Austin, who do you credit with helping to develop
your love for the outdoors?
Austin Heine: My dad, Jim — he started taking me deer
hunting when I was 3 and turkey hunting when I was 6 or 7 years old. And he's
had me fishing with him since I could walk. He has kept me involved in the
outdoors, which has been a good way for us to remain close.
NWTF: How did your dad's decision to get you outdoors
at such an early age help you later on?
AH: Being outdoors kept me out of trouble and doing the
right thing. As long as I was hunting or fishing, my parents knew I wasn't doing
anything wrong. I've noticed that when children are introduced to the outdoors
at an early age, they have a much stronger passion for it and are much more
dedicated to it.
NWTF: What's your favorite part about turkey hunting?
AH: I really like hearing turkeys gobble early in the
morning, when they're real close. It just kind of wakes you up.
When we hunt, we let the smaller birds walk most of the
time and won't shoot one unless it is really big. And that's fine with me. I
don't have to shoot one. As long as I can get one in close and gobbling, I'm
NWTF: We hear you have a pretty unusual method of
AH: Who told you about that? (laughs) Yeah, I call
using a coffee straw.
It started when I was younger, and my dad and I were
hunting with Jim Casada. Jim was messing around with a straw, just sort of
trying to call with it, because he thought it could work. After that, I really
got into it. And for about a year and a half, I nearly drove my parents crazy.
(laughs) Then I got good at it, so I tried using it when I was hunting. Now I
use the straw as my primary calling method. In my experience, I have found that
gobblers like the sound of the call from a straw even more than the sound made
with traditional calling methods. I've probably called in more than 15 gobblers
using a coffee straw. It's pretty fun to watch.
NWTF: Tell us about your involvement with the NWTF.
AH: I was just elected the secretary for the State
College Chapter at North Carolina State University for the upcoming year. I am
excited to help steer our chapter in the right direction and hope to serve as
the chapter president one day. The State College Chapter has only been around
for five years, so I want to make sure that it stays around and keeps growing.
We host a banquet every year, and this year, we plan to host a Wheelin'
Sportsmen event and participate in the Turkey Hunters Care program.
NWTF: What makes the State College Chapter special?
AH: There are few college NWTF chapters out there. All
our members are currently college students, and most belong to another NWTF
chapter in their hometowns too. The best way to describe our chapter is that it
is really like a club. Having this NWTF chapter at my school has helped me make
friends my age who also like to turkey hunt. We all have the same interests and
get along really well. It's a great group of people to hang out with. On the
opening day of turkey season, we all text each other to see who got a bird.
NWTF: Why do you think it is important to support the
AH: When you get involved with the NWTF, you see how
active it is, and how good it has been for conservation. The NWTF has helped the
turkey population grow in so many areas that had little or no birds before. You
can actually see the success from the work it does. Whether relocating turkeys,
providing scholarships, hosting outreach events or providing turkeys to those in
need through the Turkey Hunters Care program, the NWTF helps people and makes a
positive impact on communities. — Melanie Swearingen.
