That's true but the worst sound I've ever heard in the woods was a real hen carrying on. I just knew somebody was walking in on me and then there she was. I couldn't believe it.

I can't tell you how many times I've thought"that can't be a hen,sounds awful!" only it..ummm.. is a hen.I guess it goes to show that even the real thing doesn't make perfect sounds every time. That's why when I mess up it don't bother me! \:D

Great looking calls Stoner.

I'm not a box call user either, but the main reason is I can't see spending the $$$ for a quality call and then end up sitting on it and busting it, knowing my luck \:D !

It is my understanding though that on windy days, they can't be beat for the volume they can produce.

How much do you use the scratch box in the third pic? I work with the son of a passed-on turkey legend in these parts, and the son gave me some of his dad's old turkey calls. There was a well-used scratch box in the assortment, and while I have practiced with it, I just can't get it quite right. I'd love to kill a bird using that call. Kind of like a tribute. Any tips?

Also in the loot was what looks like a box call without the lid, but it has a fairly thick nail driven in to the bottom with the nail head protruding just above the plane of the top of the box. There is another rectangular block of wood that was used to drag across the nail head. I can get a turkey sound from it about 25% of the time. Ever seen one of those?

I have one made by some Bailey feller in Greene County. This thing is the cat's meow......Or maybe the Turkey's cluck.

I am not sure but I think his first name is Allen.
