Turkey Hunting Whether it's spring or fall doesn't matter to this bunch. Great tips on calling, bustin flocks, using blinds and more.

It's been awhile, thought you might like to see what I've been up to.

Default It's been awhile, thought you might like to see what I've been up to.

I just plumb forgot about HNI, been so busy. Here's just one excuse for my absence. Just recently finished this matching set for a new customer. The wood is Oak, Paduck, and Yellowheart. Glass over acrylic pot, Slate over glass pot, and a slate over glass trough call. Last pic is some diamondwood strikers he also bought.

Thank you! Diamondwood makes the best sounding strikers bar none!
For those that are curious, the two greenish stones are turquoise, and the
red one is a Wooley Mammoth tooth, out of Siberia.

Very nice work. Did you use a wood burning technique for the feathers or is it paint?

Sounds just like a pot call of similar surface, just a little softer. I wanted to build something that would fit in a shirt pocket, and this is what I came up with. I've only seen one other trough call that had a soundboard in it. Most do not.

Some real nice looking calls Mastevt !! You have done a great job at making them..

i had a double sided slate call made this spring for the same purpose of putting it in my shirt pocket. It is a 3 1/2 inch call sounds great and got both my turkeys this spring using it.. Those smaller calls that you can carry in your pocket is handy to have..

Thanks Phil!
I designed a doubled sided call myself. It has two full sided surfaces, and 2 soundboards, one for each surface, which I haven't seen before. This one is made out of Cocobola, with matching striker handles. The pegs are Diamondwood. Glass over Acrylic, and Slate over Glass. I have several of them out there. One guy in Florida, with his wife, each got their grand slam in the same year using it. I guess it was a first for a husband and wife to do it together in the same year. I was pretty proud of that!
