What I'd like to see at the turnathon
« on: January 05, 2015, 08:32:35 AM »
I thought a bit last night at work what I'd like to see/try and make and here's my list in no particular order

1. Trumpet
2. Box call
3. Someone to show me how to properly use a stupid goose call....I despise them personally but have been forced to make a few
4. Carving
5. Using a router....Aaron I know you can help me with that
6. Friction fit inserts for duck calls....I know how to do it would just like to watch someone do it

If anyone can think of anything else that's gonna be there please be sure to post so we can get a list of things I know something's have already been talked about but a thread where we can go right to I thought would be helpful

I'd like to see -

Duck Whistles
Turkey pot call
Turkey trumpet call
Goose flute

And the best one - somebody has to turn a piece of un-stabilized black palm, I just want to see what you do. I can turn it just fine. Lol

I can teach All wood grunt calls/Deer grunt flutes (whatever you want to call them) And squirrel calls...... Although I only have one squirrel call kit left....

I can't think of anything else right now but I know there is a few more things....

I doubt anybody will be making goose guts but I could be wrong. 

David, plan on being a sponge and learning.  You're young and very new to making calls, and I hope you'll use this opportunity to watch quite a few very experienced craftsmen do their thing.  The chance to do that with so many people with such depth of experience doesn't present itself often.  I told your dad to be sure you bring something to write down what you see and learn, as it is a lot to absorb at once.

I would also like to see a hollowed out box call if anyone has the ability to bring some tips to the table.

I wish I lived closer and had time to attend. I do not. That being said.....

I know i've seen a couple short snippets of video online from one of the turnathons. (Aaron's channel I believe)...If someone had a go-pro, or other camera and would be willing to film some of the demonstrations, I would love to see some footage. Even raw and unedited.

Just a thought

Drats Barry!  I was looking forward to seeing you again...  Congratulations on making it to retirement!!!  :punk:

OK gang!
I'm going to teach you all how to make wooden goose guts from scratch.  If you ever want to win at St. Charles with a fancy call, it's got to have hand built guts.

Here is what you all need to bring:
A plastic ruler.
220 and 400 grit sandpaper, 3 or 4 sheets ought to do.
Masking tape.
A goose call that you don't mind taking the current guts out of.  We can help re-tune it afterwards.  I'll bring some extra goose calls just in case.
I already turned some hedge rods down to almost 5.8 inch so I think I'll have enough for everybody to give it a shot.

If nothing else you all will get a good understanding of what makes a goose gut work, and will avoid the hours of frustration I had trying to figure it out on my own...  :stickman1: :hammer:

What do I want to learn?
Squirrel calls (I have some kits)
More duck tone boards
How to blow a goose call...... There are some notes that still elude me...
That's a good start...  :beer:
