These are some of my turkey box calls - some handcarved from one pc. of wood and some handmade box calls, made with black walnut, cherry, maple, poplar & oak or combinations of wood types, they can be made in other types of wood also, my girlfriend favors the black walnut with oak base.

- I started making turkey box calls about 8 years ago when I needed a hobby; I was a Vol. Firefighter/EMT for 22 years and Capt. the last 12. I never had time for a hobby then, I guess firefighting was my hobby and getting time to bowhunt back then was cherished. I took woodshop in school with the same teacher all 6 yrs. and I learned a lot from him, that started my passion for woodworking. Anyway, needing a hobby I combined my two passions; woodworking and the outdoors..being an NWTF member..what was better than turkey calls, and later hunting stuff; it was the natural thing to do. I recently took up fly fishing and made a few friends that needed some woodworking done for them so now I make fishing related stuff too.
