Purdy in Purple!!!

Postby Fargohunt » March 29th, 2011, 3:43 pm

Here is a call headed to the mid-west, she is a curly purpleheart lid (man this stuff is cool RkLu) with curly maple inlays over a red cedar box with curly maple end blocks set on a matching purpleheart base. The woodburning is really getting to be a lot of fun and this one sports a gobblers tail feather on the right sound rail and spring snowflakes on the left sound rail. Despite the unusual grain this call surprised me and turned out with a crisp boss hen in the left and a clear smooth young hen in the right, both with distinct roll-over yelpy-yawks! As a bonus and I think as a result of the grain, this call purrs like no other I have built. Hope the hunter likes it and fools a couple wiley old toms!

Beautiful call Fargo. Purpleheart is one of my top 2 or 3 favorite woods and I'm a fan of any call that's got a little purple in it[;)]

Man, that is a beauty!
 
I especially like the matching top and base, very balanced to the eye.
