A few of my turkey calls

I started a little side business last winter turning turkey calls. I posted some pics here a while back but in recent months they've "evolved" quite a bit and they're getting better and more refined.

Here's a few pics. I'd love to hear your feedback...Positive or negative!

This one was entered in a callmaking competition that a turkey hunting magazine is putting on. Won't know the results until October though. It is curly claro walnut with a Waterlox finished rubbed out with 0000 steel wool and waxed.

Bocote. The striker was turned with the grain oriented sideways to show off the end grain. Mylands finish.

Here's one made from maple burl. This one is finished in spar urethane, and the picture was taken after one of three coats.
