Hey T&TH! Long time, no post.
I just wanted to drop in to offer a shout out a call maker you may know. I started using Hoosier Hunter Custom Calls last year and they continue to prove themselves to be the best calls I have used in 20+, hard calling turkey seasons!
Before last year I used calls off the sale rack and really struggled to find calls that would maintain consistent sounds. Finding a good call was like a summer romance. It was a good feeling but I knew it wouldn't last. Invariably the call would wear out and I'd go buy another, of the exact same make. The sounds were never the same.
Hoosier Hunter makes calls that carry sweet sounds at all ranges, and they are the same from call to call. That is priceless in my opinion. Now, before anyone accuses me of making a totally shameless plug (I know they will anyway), let me say that I expect that any custom call maker will produce similar results. One maker or a small group of makers has to put more care into their work than a factory assembly line. So check out my guy or another custom maker and see if it does not improve your calling and hunting.
So far the "Cherry, 14 sided, Glass Over Slate" pot call and the "Big Indy" mouth call have been the hot ticket in the Iowa/Missouri border region. Here are the 2010 results...so far.
