That was a great job Bill. How you can do another tutorial better I have no idea. I'll just sit back and wait for it.  :o

How did you know I needed some help!
I am about get in to some hickory to make a deer grunt for a friend and have never made one. I'm looking for all the help I can get ! If I understand your instructions, the reed is going to be in a 5/8 bore chamber with 1/2 bore on both ends. Is this a Glodo style approach, or jus the norm for a deer grunt ? I plan to use all wood for my grunt. Is there any value in using 5/8 bore for the tube part ?
Thanks again for taking the time to post up !

Yes that is right and the reed itself is only 1/2 inch in diameter

Is this a Glodo style approach, or jus the norm for a deer grunt ? This is my own way of making a deer call
In the directions you get with the reed kit it tells you to drill a 3/4 hole all the way through the barrel

 Is there any value in using 5/8 bore for the tube part ?
Yes there are a few things that come to mind.First a smaller air channel means easier to blow [less air to make the call work]
2nd Comfort, You can turn the barrel a little smaller fits the hand a little nicer and adds comfort to the mouth piece

I hope this helps
If you have anymore questions don't be afraid to ask

Bill, I have made a few grunts on my own and somehow I missed this tutorial. I made one today using your method and it went much better than the way I was doing them before. Thanks for an easy to read tutorial. I think I will be using your method from now on!! :bigup:
