Home made Lanyards

Just wondering if anyone here has ever made their own lanyards for their calls.

I'm thinking of making a couple to pass the time away.....

Care to share what you made them out of and any pictures of your creations.

Do a web search on boondoggle and you will find some good info.

I just used some decoy line. They aren't fancy, but I can make them any way I like them. I can do one in about half an hour. Sorry no pictures. Good luck.

i usually go to the local army/navy store (kinda sporting goods/hardware store/baitshop) and get some parachute cord. it comes in several colors. i usually use drab green, brown and black, but i have seen orange too! go to the library and pick up a book on braiding or search the net and then play with the braid you like until you figure it out! once you learn how to make 'em they're really simple. i have supplied just about all of my hunting buddies with at least one lanyard. make good Christmas/b-day gifts! you can also make them with as many or few loops as you want. i hate fumbling for calls, so i only keep 3 at a time, but i've made some with as many as 6 before.

practice, practice, practice! :thumbsup:

good luck,
Letney
if i could make a scented candle, i'd make call it... gunpowder in the sunrise! or wet dog, swamp mud and gun smoke!
