Saved my best for last!!!!

Postby Fargohunt » April 30th, 2011, 12:30 pm

This call was built for my hunting buddy Ross. He ordered it a while ago and only said he wanted red cedar--"do what you want with the rest--I trust you!" I think he'll be surprised when I show up with this in the am!

Well here she is Ross, look forward to sitting along side you in the morning for opening day here in NY when you call in one of our longbeards with this call. This has an Ipe lid (man, now one of my favorite woods for a lid) and it sports a carved curly maple tail feather applique and an antler thumb tab--Ross is also a BIG TIME deer hunter, the box is red cedar with my signature curly maple end blocks and the base is sapele.

As expected with the cedar this call gets pretty raspy in the old hen, but I tuned the young hen to be clearer and sharper with a hard roll-over and again with cedar this call purrs with the best of them. I literally finished the call an hour ago...in the nick-of-time. I can't wait to see the look on his face at 4 am :o Thanks for looking everyone. I'll be out of the shop for a while to do some hunting and long awaited R&R.

Thanks Arnie, retire...hah, not hardly...I'm just getting warmed up.  Should have another series to post in about a week or so.  Hope everyone has had a good season, but here in NY it's been rain rain rain and quiet birds changing roosts almost each day.[:@]

Very nice looking calls.
I am headed into the "shop" now. Shop = Garage with just enough workspace to turn around.
