Thank you, Larry. I am seeing a few birds that may or may not be living there. I saw a single hen at Hiligas and California Rd this spring. I am getting some scattered reports from church members of turkeys in the Chain-O-Lakes area. There was a hen hanging around here a couple of years ago. So they are coming back in the North east part of the state.
The box call is from OAKMAST calls. Walnut paddle, poplar sides. Jim treated it with some sort of hardener. It is my go to call when I need volumne. I had a tom all worked up down at Patoka across an arm of the res that was about 1/2+ mile wide. I yelped and cut and he gobbled his head off. Later that evening 2 gobblers walked by at about 60 yards, but would not play.
I harvested my bird at Roush Lake. My son should have scored there last year and this, but I [:o]manged to bust his bird before he could get a shot.
Jim sells on ebay as OAKMASTTURKEYCALLS. He makes a great call. He does not make a lot of calls each year
