New guy

Just found the site and have been looking over some old posts. I make custom duck, turkey and goose calls. Most of these are made on a lathe. I love to experiment with different woods just to see how they work out in the final product. Not all of them are good for what I do, but most make the grade. I also build furniture, mostly around the house, but a few custoom order stuff as well. These are just a few of the calls I have made

This first one is red malle from Australia. The inclusions I filled with silver


This next one is a goose call. The barrel is maple burl, the band is pink ivory and the insert is African blackwood


Next is a duck call. The barrel is honey locust, the band is elk antler, and the insert is African blackwood


This last is a duck call as well. The barrel is honey locust, the band made of brass ( which I make myself) and the insert is Bahama cherry

Nice work, Lee... But I've seen your work before.

Question... Do you offer the Red Malle friction call for sale? Is it a "double trouble?" What's the friction material? Glass or slate or both? (OK... more than one question...)

Welcome to the forum. How does the duck hunting in GA look this year? I'm hoping to get in the Arkansas wetlands a time or two this year myself. Ever get over to the Mississippi fly way to try out your calls?

Oh... almost forgot... welcome to the forum...

I cut that board three times and it's STILL too short!!!...

Well howdy Terry
Yeah, that red mallee call is for sale and it IS a "Double Trouble". I have not put the calling surfaces in it yet, I figure whoever willing to pay the money for that call will get their choice of materials.
As far as the duck hunting here, it sucks ( not sure if that will be edited or not, but truthful). GA hasnt had a decent duck population in twenty years or more, and with the drought being as bad as it was, very few opporunities exist. So to answer your other question about the Mississippi Flyway, heck yeah. I have a few hunts planned this year: Arkansas to a buddy's club that backs up to Claypools, another hunt to Venice, LA for a combination duck and tuna trip, and maybe one other hunt to Mississippi


And to everyone else, thanks for the compliments
