I can attest to them sounding good. Ron, my blondie works so well, I called in 2 yotes last night while practicing my female yips, yelps and howls. Who would've thought they'd come in to a howl this time of the year? Weird! Too bad I was in my buddy's back yard and in the city limits or they'd have been done in. Urban coyotes-bold bastards!!!

I have wanted to make a box call for a long time and made 2 of them for a couple of guys on the board. I really enjoy making calls and will make more and put them up for sale, I plan on making some duck calls too but there is only so much time for hunting, fishing, call making and work. OH yea, and cubscouts, soccer, softball and so on and so on.. I don't hunt turkeys or ducks very often so that's why I mostly make predator calls but if anyone has a call they are looking for let me know, I may just have to give it a shot.

All you need is to crack a budweiser they will come running in from a mile away to the sound of a cheap beer cracking open. If you like fat ones just open up a twinky wrapper.

Heck all I do for them is just go camping buy myself and they come waking into camp. Real nice calls Jaws.
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.

On the turkey call the holes are for sound like a speaker. You scratch or work the striker over the slate to make turkey yells.I'm going to guess you would blow into the base or brass end of the shotgun shell calls. That way the open end would work as the chamber where the sound comes out to give it more volume.

I am going to sell thenm. The calls posted above are spoken for but I can make more, the striker is made from a piece of wood I had left over( I think maple). I am finishing one up for my dad this afternoon and will post some pictures of that one I think you will like it. I can also make it from the wood of your choice, if you like a particular species.
