I have been working on a new call to add to my line and this is what I came up with. These are turkey trumpet calls which have been around for years but the way they are made is a guarded secret to say the least. I spent a lot of time researching how to do these then took more time figuring out how to physically get them made. They are not easy or at least to me they aren’t.
Each blank is 5” long with a 2 1/2”-3” delrin mouthpiece. I added a deer antler insert for the mouthpiece to sit in which fits inside the call itself. They still need a cork lip stop which I will add today.
The first call is stabilized buckeye burl with an African blackwood cap, the second is stabilized pistachio with an African blackwood cap. Both got deer antler inserts and delrin mouthpieces. Finish is natural stain and lacquer.
Thanks for taking a look.
