I am somewhat of a traditional hunter when I hunt spring gobblers. I make and collect calls. I do not have a large collection but it keeps growing every year. Below are my top choices for this year:
Albert Paul makes a fantastic call. I have killed several gobblers with that call. The very first time I used that call, I saw a gobbler fly out of the roost 200 yards away and I called him right in. Tim Clayton makes a some very nice calls that are reasonable price. It is a very high quality call for the money. He is an up and coming call maker. Jerry White, a.k.a. Dad’s Calls make a fine box call. Below are a few pictures.

Tim Claytons one sided called made with persimmon and Florida cherry.





Florida Cracker Call made by Tim Clayton made with Florida cypress, Florida maple, and Florida cedar.



Below is a great box call made by Albert Paul. The box is persimmon and the paddle is curly maple.









Below is one of Jerry White’s custom calls made from cedar with a purple heart paddle.

Darrin does make a nice box call. Albert Paul is out of Mississippi and his calls are all turkey. They are a bit pricey but well worth the money. It is a call that you will carry in your vest for the rest of your life.

I have one that's black but can't tell you off the top of my head who made it because I very rarely use it. I use my mouth calls and slate calls 99% of the time. Good looking calls you've got though.

I have a stradivarius! Well not really, it just sounds like one.
Ashby(Ike) out of Houston, MO. Now out of business. Mine is a "raspy old hen" which I bought for $2.50 off of a discount table years ago. The last one that I saw on ebay went for around $250 as I recall. Beautiful sound.

not fancy, but this call was give to me by my step brothers dad. i was doing some work for him about 10 years ago and we got to talking turkey hunting and calls. i told him my favorite was a lohman 870 that i lost in the woods some years before. he said, look what i got. and showed me this box call. the tone was unreal, and i told him that it looked like an 870 with an extra handle, and all cedar. he said yep, mr johnson handmade a few of them a few years ago. i said your lucky to have that call. he said its not my call its yours!! i have used it many times and called in a few call shy turkeys with it, along with the wingbone i made, they are deadly calls to have in my vest!!
