Heres another idea i did for a hooter i did. Instead of plugging it with a drilled dowel knock the primer out of a spent shotgun hull and cut the plastic off it. Sand the bore to fit the brass and it looks pretty classy  :punk:


After the primer is out just run a 1/4 drill though the pocket Just a crazy idea LOL   :wacko:

Rich, Thanks for sharing that.  I don't want to copy your idea so I will go with a 20 ga hull instead of a 12 ga  :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:  That is a cool idea.  It seems the making of an owl call is just like any other call with the exception of the sound chamber.  That danged sound chamber is the key.

Brian, make sure it's a spent round  :rofl: :rofl:  Brian, can I offer you a nice Dominican cigar?  Least I can do for you sending me a call to check out.  I'm sure I'll send a little something back when I return your call  :yes:

I've done a little reading and it seems like the Palmers Hoot Tube is one of the best hooters to blow?  I have a friend who has one and I've inspected it down as far as I could.  One thing I noticed on this particular call is it has a double sound chamber in the exhaust. However; the sound chamber is in the 7/8" diameter range?  Some custom call makers prefer to leave the exhaust end open; some prefer to throttle down with the " hole.  I wonder if a " bore in the exhaust end with a double sound chamber would work?  Would it be too constricted by a " hole or better served with an open ended bore?  Just some things to play with when I get home and contemplate.  I'll head off to Lowes and get some cheap Poplar stock and make it round.  Just want to say this has been a helpful thread and thanks to all the contributors... even though I'm no closer to a hooter call, I have a better understanding.

Aw Jeff, don't swet sending the call back after you look at it. Put it to use for hunting, collecting or firewood. Drop me a note with an address though, It'll get there quicker that way....LOL :rofl:
