I really need to go to Turkey Calls Anonymous! I think I'm over 80 custom box calls. I work with a lot of the top turkey call makers and I'm always trying to come up with something new that looks way cool and sounds great. I'd say 75% of my calls are labeled #1 for first ever made.
Here's two more. These were made by Preacher man Turkey calls. Jody does a phenomenal job! These calls actually sound better than they look.
The first is a Spalted Sycamore Box with Snakewood Top/Bottom. The top and bottom have 1/4" splated sycamore inlays. The sides have 1/4" snake wood inlays
The second is kinda like the first except it has a Wormy Persimmon box and 1/4" inlays on the lid and bottom. The top and bottom are snakewood with 1/4" snakewood inlays on each side of the box.
Both bottoms are personalized to me with type of woods used and #1 of 1 on them
I really need to stop, I think I still have over a dozen more being made by different folks.
Yes, I'll use each call this spring. I have a turkey hunting rule. I used a different call in the morning and another in the evening. The next day I keep changing. I never use the same call twice in a season and rarely make a dent in using all of the calls.
