First Turkey Call and Question...
« on: March 05, 2018, 05:01:06 PM »
First Turkey call.  I like it.  Red Oak Burl with a birds eye maple striker.

Was thinking i would soak the top of the striker in recently used coffee grounds to stain it a bit.  Has anyone done this with any success?

Try medium brown shoe dye. It will not raise the wood grain.

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

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