Alan Cathey - Vanleer, TN

Turkey/Fishing/Deer


Introduced to the outdoors at an early age by his father David, Alan "Catfish" Cathey spends 150 to 200 days a year both in the woods and on the water.

Born and raised in Middle Tennessee, Alan continues to enjoy whitetail and predator hunting but hunting longbeards has long been his true passion. The complex interaction between hunter and turkey (of which MAD Calls has been his choice of calls for nearly 20 years) is the driving force behind this passion which sees Alan not hunting the turkeys but also filming his own hunts along with editing and producing the finished product.

Once turkey season has ended, Alan hits the water in pursuit of largemouth, crappie, sauger, and his favorite, smallmouth.
