Re: Which Reflex sight?

The above listed are all good. I have Trijicon, Aimpoint and Burris. My Trijicons are the older Reflex models. Trijicon has come out with a mini version (RMR) that utilizes the tritium lamp and fiber optics system of the larger sights and scopes. Add Docter and Eotech to the list of topline dot syst...

Re: New hunting buddy for pheasant season

Nice looking pup. I am grateful that I am on this side of puppyhood with my Britt. Jace is a good, simple name that can be said at the top of your lungs (and you will) and isn't close in sound to a command.

Re: Speed Hen

There is still the silent dog whistle that shocks Toms into silent gobbling. Crud. It's out of the bag. Anyone want a brass silent dog whistle??
Another old Indian secret. Cut decoy in half. Place both halves in trash heap. Go to woods without either half. Works for me.

Re: Speed Hen

For streamlining running and gunning, a hat can be made out of a foam decoy. Two birds with one stone: hat and decoy. I think 2ounces6 had a photo up of his son wearing one. That way you don't need to worry about cutting the head off the decoy and using it on the fly and worrying about getting shot ...

Re: Diaphragm Call Mastery?

Welcome aboard on your first post. The key to learning a mouth call is finding one that fits your palate. Have you tried a variety of sizes? Learn to use a simple single or double reed first before trying the more advanced calls with triple stacked reeds with a thick holder. Calling is the most glam...

Re: A turkeys hearing?

I had a bad experience crawling on public land a couple years ago though, so I'm always kinda nervous when I do it now One thing I've learned is that even on private property you can never assume that someone else isn't there. I know of at least two incidents in my area where the assumption that no...

Re: Box turtle slate call

FC, I've only made them from Box turtle shells. Don't see why a slider wouldn't work. Dunno how an internal sound board would work with the end of the call open. A good box turtle call is not just a novelty call. They can do the job very well.

Re: Box turtle slate call

SBB,
Years ago, I saw them for sale with a wooden sound board which was twice the length of the shell. It looked cumbersome as heqq. I've wondered how it would sound with glass, copper or aluminum instead of slate. Next shell I find, I'll have to try it. Gil

FC, the top right call was made with a full-fitted slate. It sounded awful until I cut the slots with the dremel tool's wheel. The top left is one of Lamar's. Bottom photo was taken this am on way to work. T''buster, it's unfair to the turkeys that you use a call at all :P . Seeing Lamar's call remi...

Box turtle slate call

I bought my first box turtle slate call from Lamar Williams over 30 years ago. He stopped selling them when Florida’s Endangered Species Act made the sale (and possession??) of box turtle shells illegal. Familiarize yourself with your state’s laws regarding box turtles. Even where legal, I don’t adv...
