Bolivian Rosewood and ABW MetalReed Call
« on: December 22, 2017, 03:00:38 PM »
Thanks much to Al for setting up the picture posting ability!

I built this Bolivian Rosewood and ABW call with a bronze reed a week ago. Hunted with it this past weekend. Sounded great in the field.

There's a duck call in that block of wood. I just have to find it!

That is a really nice call.  Love the stippling sections!
Metal reed calls have a definite place in the field. Ducks respond because they sound different from the calls most hunters are blowing.

Reelfoot, the original duck call. What's on your lanyard?

That is a beauty. So glad others are getting to making metal reed calls.

That one a 5/8 bore or a 3/4 bore, If 5/8 you just got to try a 3/4 bore and you will find another difference in the calls.

Good Christmas to you and all.
