Re: Observations on turkey populatioins

Complex problems often have simple solutions, unfortunately, they usually do not work. Weather, predators, habitat, agricultural practices, disease, age structure, and hunting pressure/techniques can all affect turkey populations/gobbling. On our property, we are concentrating on the things we can i...

Re: Turkey populations in your area

We have ample birds on our place in West Central Alabama, more than in the last few years but gobbling remains sporadic at best. Our birds are not nearly as vocal as 10 years ago. Makes for hard hunting and a potential change in age structure with more older, dominate birds.

I have an old Lynch call signed by Mr. Lynch with the address Homewood, AL. written below. Does your call have any signatures, engravings, etc? Allen Jenkins knows alot about Lynch calls. Google Allen (or Alan) Jenkins calls and you will find a phone number. He was very helpful in identifying the ap...

Re: Finally found a bird in Alabama

I hunt in west-central Alabama, had a decent early season but much tougher the last two weeks. Despite a good number of birds, improved habitat, reasonable hunting pressure, and no notable change in predators, we have noticed a definite decrease in gobbling over the last few years. Our birds are eit...

Re: Old Lynch Call

I was able to send pictures and speak with Allen Jenkins, prior owner on Lynch Calls. He thinks the call in question is a very early version made between 1939 - 1942 in Mr. Lynch’s basement. He is aware of only 8-9 of these early calls still around. He indicated the call originally came is a hand ma...

Old Lynch Call

My uncle recently gave me an old Lynch box call which sat for years on a shelf in my grandfather's camp house. The call is in good condition and sounds great. The only markings are hand written, ML Lynch, Homewood, Al. My understanding is Mr. Lynch starting making calls in his basement in the late 3...
