For a guy who never tipped a bottle, the way I feel is terribly reminiscent of the proverbial hangover. I can't shake the cobwebs. Sleep deprivation is a bad thing.

I'm sweating it out cutting up the tree that Wonton wouldn't do for me.
Am I to understand correctly that there was a no headlight Ray Charles incident while the Heron was driving?

No wonder they (RNT) haven't returned my email. Indas are in there delaying production.

They're in there re-tooling all of their equipment. The Indas showed them a way to produce their calls at a third of the price, using only existing equipment, a 5-gallon bucket, a whistle, and a piece of re-bar. And the cast-offs from the turnings can be used as boudin filler, sauce piquant, or redfish bait.

So, now I can buy a RNT Emu call?

Available in hot pink and neon green. Bright colors attract emus, you know. If you get the package, it comes with a free Midnight Oil CD.

Word out of Stuttgart this morning is that it will be called the Assateague signature call and will be a limited run. I'm calling to preorder mine now.

Are they all 5-gallon Originals? Or are quart Short Barrel and 55-gallon MVP models also available?

Don't spill the beans, but there will be a limited run of 3-gallon short barrels as well, in chartreuse. They're also working on a double-barrel prototype, 3-gallon inside the 5-gallon. Little harder to run and get a good emu drummmmmm, but when you do, they'll come running. It's gonna be called the "Double Thumper of Death", and will more than likely have a skull and/or some sort of graffiti logo on it. If you shave one side of the rim of the 5-gallon barrel, you can get some amazing sound as well. In a few years we'll run a "shave-down" edition. I may retire next Wednesday, between these and the UniCorn blinds.
