Default My wooden duck call split!

Was hunting in southern Idaho this morning & the temps were 16F to 24F for about 6 hrs. After I got home, I put my calls on my night stand. This evening I there is a big split down the side of my favorite duck call. Sounds like crap obviously as most of the air is leaving through the side rather than the end. I am wondering if I could fix it? Anybody ever done that or should I just cut my loss & move on?

Doubt it. Grain next to it will split when the barrel is inserted into the body. Probably got wet, froze, then when it thawed, it swelled and split.

Not my first winter but my first one in Idaho. Well, I used Elmer's wood filler & it seems to be fine for now. Not sure if it will hold up to tomorrow's hunt or not. Good thing it that there is a Cabela's on the way home if it decides to split again.

My thoughts exactly.

You have nothing to lose by trying. Make sure you wet the wood slightly before using the gorilla glue... I thought for years that stuff SUCKED... who would think to wet something before gluing it... pays to read the back of the bottle.

Thats a fact!!! First time using the stuff was with a custom wooden toilet seat. Was starting to come apart on the tongue and groove joints. So I decide I can fix this. Wet it a bit and then REALLY put the glue to it!!!!! Missed the part where they say to use it sparingly!!!!!!! So after trying to contain this stuff for over 20 minutes, I give up. Just put it down on the newspaper and take a carpenters knife and file to it next day. Then sandpaper. Good to go!!!! Great stuff. Once you learn how to wrangle it!!!
