Overland Park, KS. — World champion goose caller Scott Threinen, of Rochester, Minnesota has joined the Final Approach Advisory Staff.20100517_534

Scott is an active contest caller who currently holds over 25 major calling titles, including:

  • 2007, 2008, 2009 World Live Goose Calling Champion
  • 2005 World Team Calling Champion
  • 3-Time Northern National Champion
  • 2-Time Northern Open Champion
  • I.W.A. North American Champion

Scott grew up on a dairy farm outside a small town in Minnesota. With a large local population of geese in the area, he started hunting waterfowl at 12 years old. When he was 15 his parents would drop him off at fields to call for guided hunters in the renowned area of Rochester, Minnesota. Hunting and being outdoors was his passion, but he also excelled in sports in high school.

Scott signed with the Cleveland Indians out of high school after they drafted him his senior year. He also played football where he signed a letter of intent to play both football and baseball at Oklahoma State University. He played four years in the Indians organization and now resides in Rochester, Minnesota.

After baseball, in 2006 he started a company called Molt Gear which produces instructional calling and hunting DVDs and CDs. The initial release of the Bad Grammer CD in 2006, followed by the Bad Grammer DVD in 2008 have become the number one selling goose calling instructional discs on the market. In 2009 he released the Stage Grammer DVD for inspiring contest callers and this past March, Scott and Molt Gear released their first in a series of videos called “The Goose Society,” which takes an inside look into the finer aspects of goose hunting.

Additionally, Scott was recognized in 2004 with the cystic fibrosis humanitarian award for his contributions and efforts of bringing awareness of the disease. He also runs an instructional goose hunting club out of Rochester, Minnesota. “Final Approach is a company that is committed to developing the best possible products for hardcore waterfowl hunters.” said Threinen. “It is a company that is continually setting the standard that myself and the Molt Gear team are extremely excited to become a part of.”

Threinen joins Sean Mann, Bill Saunders and John Vaca on the Final Approach Advisory Staff.
