Our friction calls are some of the finest on the market today! While all of these calls are built for collector quality, they are built to hunt…these calls talk turkey or they don’t make it out the door!
All of our wooden calls are individually handcrafted the old fashioned way…one at a time. The backs of the calls are fully engraved and all bear my signature…your guarantee that I pride myself on workmanship and quality, both in looks AND function.
All of our wooden calls are finished with five coats of urethane inside and out to prevent warping, cracking, or splitting.

We currently offer these calls in Pecan, Walnut, Padauk, Cherry, Zebrawood, Maple (Hard & Birdseye), Cedar, and Sassafras. In addition, we also offer several exotic calls from time to time or on request.
