BOX CALLS

All the turkeys calls offered here are double sided. Each side of the call is milled and tuned to give a different tone. This makes it easy to sound like more than one hen to those cagey old gobblers. Any combination of woods is possible with these calls. Different woods will give different pitches and tones. The most consistent woods for sound quality are walnut, cedar and popple.

The Two Tone

This is a beautiful call to look at and use. The panels allow you to adjust the volume and tone by using your finger on the sides, much like playing an instrument. This is a great all around call. The tone will vary depending on the wood combinations . I have found a walnut base and paddle, with cedar and popple inserts to give the best sound. I can put a different wood on each side, or vary the thickness of the two sides to achieve a different sound.

Call size is approx: Paddle - 9 1/2 , Body - 7 3/4 long, 2 wide and 2 1/2 deep

The Little Two Tone

The same style as the two tone but in a smaller package. This tends to be a fairly high pitched call due to its smaller size. The tone will vary depending on the wood combinations . (Shown in Black Walnut with cedar and popple sides)

Call size is approx: Paddle - 8 1/4, Body - 6 long, 1 7/8 wide and 2" deep

 

LARGE CALLS

All the turkeys calls offered here are double sided. Each side of the call is milled and tuned to give a different tone. This makes it easy to sound like more than one hen to those cagey old gobblers. Any combination of woods is possible with these calls. Different woods will give different pitches and tones. The most consistent woods for sound quality are walnut, cedar and popple.

The Big-Un

This was the first type of call I made. It is patterned after a boat-paddle style call. Instead of a single block of wood I make this call out of panels. This allows me to create a thin side that gives a great vibration, for a raspy call. This is a loud call that is great for windy days, or running and gunning. Checkering on the side panels is available on this call. (shown in Black Walnut, with fine checkering)

Call size is approx: Paddle - 11 1/4, Body - 7 7/8 long, 2 wide and 1 3/4" deep

 
The Carolina Style Caller

This box call is based on the style made famous by Neil Cost. I have made a few subtle modifications, but the style is basically the same. This is not a mass produced style call. Each call takes several hours to produce and tune. No laser guided routers milling out 50 calls at a time. Each call is made from a solid piece of wood. The piece is milled to size and hollowed out with drill and chisel. The checkering on the side is hand cut with a straight chisel. The inlay in the top and body of the call help give the call strength and add a stylish touch. The wood for the inlay is made from the wood on the other part of the call, or of cedar, to contrast with the mahogany. The checkering is cut for a purpose. It relieves stress on the calls side and helps give the call a raspy sound . Each call is hand tuned for two different pitches. The call is available in Mahogany , Cherry or Poplar bodies. The top and bottom can be Mahogany, Cherry, Walnut, Birdseye Maple or Poplar. Each combination of woods produces a different sound. The hardwood tops tend to produce a shaper sound, while the Poplar and Mahogany tend to produce a slightly deeper and softer tone. The body wood also creates variations. From sharpest and loudest to mellowest the woods of choice would be Cherry then Mahogany then Poplar.

That said, each piece of wood is different each call has a different sound. I can take two almost identical pieces of wood for the body and fit them with the same type tops and they will sound different. I tune them all to sound like a lonely hen (or rather two different lonely hens). Upon request I can tune one side to sound deeper like a jake.

Call size is approx: Paddle - 9 1/2 , Body - 7

 

The Carolina Long Caller

This is a variation on the Carolina Style Caller for those who like having a handle. The sound chamber is the same size as the Carolina Caller. It has no bottom attached so has a slimmer look and feel. This also tends to give it a higher pitch.

It is available in any of the wood combinations the Carolina caller is. The call is available in Mahogany, Cherry or Poplar bodies. The top and bottom can be Mahogany, Cherry, Walnut, Birdseye Maple or Poplar. Each combination of woods produces a different sound. The hardwood tops tend to produce a shaper sound, while the Poplar and Mahogany tend to produce a slightly deeper and softer tone. The body wood also creates variations. From sharpest and loudest to mellowest the woods of choice would be Cherry then Mahogany then Poplar.
