Getting ready for Reelfoot show
« on: September 05, 2019, 11:09:51 PM »

Itís that of year again, where I make my annual batch of Reelfoot style calls in preparation for the Reelfoot show. Iím just about to the point where they will be close to being finished in a couple of days.

Who all is making some Reelfoot calls for the show in October?

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

Here are the first 5 finished. And there are a couple more in the works that are a different style.

These are out of a hedge post that I had cut up about 8 years ago, and these are the first 5 calls from that post.
