Me newest toy

Postby stumpjumper » Sat Mar 01, 2008 7:31 am

Well, I recieved a new toy that I have been waiting on for awhile. It is a custom Osage pot with a bronzed glass calling surface. I waited until Bruce found me just the right piece of wood. He then thinned down the over all hight so`s to get a higher frequency. Guys this puppy here will make your ears bleed, but breaks over so gental. And it will give me soft purrs to boot. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Yeah it is a great call, I am really impressed with it. I like slate calls and it was made just the way I wanted it.

Here`s my normal glass call. It is a cocobo pot with a bronzed glass calling surface. I typicaly run this call with a tulipwood striker.

BD970 I to have a bloodwood slate and like you I love mine dearly. It is nice to be able to get a call that was made for you in mine not something off the shelf. Turkey calls are becoming alot more versitile now a days. There are so many to choose from its ridiculus. Keep your friend happy, it`s a blessing to have a friend as a call maker. You can get stuff no one else can :tongue: :tongue:

Hey cut, where`s the pic brother.

I made a wingbone from a gobbler I took a few years back. The tom was 3 1/2 years old though. I`ll snap a pic over the weekend.

From what I hear the best wingbones are made from hens. I can make a decent yelp on mine but that`s about it. Guess I just don`t know how to suck properly :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Here you go T22.
I made this one out of a gobbler I took a few years back. Most people like to us jake wing bones BUT, I don`t shoot jakes. The call sounds good and I have killed two birds with it, so it is now retired
Image

And here is a box call I made totaly myself. Funny thing is it`s made out of a pine 2x4. Hand filed the lid cuvrature, used a band saw to cut the profile and a belt sander to fine tune it, machined the tone channels on a mill in the factory. This call has been retired as I took a bird on it`s maiden voyage.
Image

Made a peg box call, and a aluminum calling surface in a turtle shell as well. I USE to make the peg box calls and sell them or give them away as gifts to friends.

I also have this same call. Never had one that has the range this one has. Awesome top, bottom softer than a babies bottom. Transition is smooth and accurate. This is the 1st pot call I haven't had to add a sweet spot locater tab on the rim!! 360 degrees of pure sweetness here! :yes:

In case ya wondering what I'm talking about on the sweet spot locater tab, I take an adhesive backed sanding disc and cut a small circle, or strip from it and apply it to the rim where the sweet spot is. It helps keep head movement to a minimum and the spot can be found easily without looking.

Next Cutt-N-Run pot call will be a slate over glass Osage!

And by the way, your Osage slate is already finished. And she sounds puuuurrrty.
