Sorry for the delay. Here's a photo of three of my scratchboxes:
Left: Cherry body with cedar soundboard.
Center: Zebrawood body with walnut ends and walnut soundboard.
Right: Cherry body with butternut soundboard. I'm using a rubberwood strikerboard on all my calls.
I was out today and called in a big gobbler twice, once around 8:30 and again around 10:00, using the cedar call. The first time a hen came in and took him away, and the second time two hens came in and took him away. After I got home I received a phone call from one of my field testers, who said he got a nice bird with the butternut version today -- 9½" beard and 1" spurs.
Thanks for your patience.
