My first successful Owl Hooter
« on: July 09, 2015, 09:12:27 AM »
Finished this one up.  It's my first owl hooter, actually second.  Wasn't satisfied with the sound on the first one, but after talking with the gentleman at the game store, and making my own restrictor, the second attempt on the exhaust portion of the call, it now sounds like an Owl.  Pretty pleased at the results.  Still have to use the hands to control air exhaust, but it's a hooter for sure.

No, I bought them here on the forum store.  Been pretty happy with the service.

Gotcha... I recently made my first owl hooter using Al's guts.  I got really good feedback on it from the guy I gave it to.  And service from Al is top notch!

I think it was Al that I talked to.  Great guy.  He really helped me with some measurements.  I had my intake barrel ID too small, and the exhaust too short.  Had some great advise on perfecting the tuning process.  Made my exhaust as l9nger as I could, and what my drill bit length could handle.  Gonna look for a longer bit.
