Some time back Shoot-it contacted me about making him a call from a steer horn he had. He really wanted me to try and make it into a double reed call if I could. It was a fresh horn, and I told him I didn't deal with fresh horns, as I didn't want to do the boiling and cleaning necessary to get to a horn that I could work with. Well, he boiled it out and cleaned it up and sent it to me. At the time he also sent a full size horn (which is now a howler and will go up for sale in a day or so) and some Apple wood. You have already seen the call I made for him from the Apple wood. Well, I finished up the Little Blaster Double Reed today and sent him a picture. He asked me to share the call with all of you. It has an Ebony mouth piece, held in by a tenon and epoxy. The horn and wood were sanded together so they look like one. It is a really pretty little horn call, and man, is it loud. If you have heard the Double Reed calls that I make, you know they are loud. Well, this one is a lot louder. The sound just echos out of the bell of this horn. It is really going to be a nice addition to his lanyard. I have to add a lanyard to it yet. There is no lanyard grove, as the horn is too thin to allow the making of a grove. I asked, and he told me to go ahead, and so tomorrow I'll drill a small hole on one side and tie a lanyard into the bell end. It's going to be great.Here are some pictures of the Little Blaster Double Reed.Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.

Just remember, rabbiddog and Red Dog called in a lion when using a double reed as did I, so keep an eye on your backside. :good:
