Keepsake Call

Keepsake Call

Hope the Turkeys can hang on in a 60/70 MPH Wind!!

Got some cool looking Turkey Pots made today in the mild weather but couldn't help but think about how hard the Turkeys are going to have it tonight trying to Roost!! That wind is Crazy!!! I know they will Roost in the Pines during The Cold and severe windy conditions unlike in the Spring when they like the Big naked open Trees...Hope a Few survive till April. Here's a few calls I'm working on...I LOVE wood that has Mineral and Beetle Fungus Stains but It's hard to find. The Minerals and Fungus only dis-color the wood and doesn't affect the strength of the wood.

The Picture Call is A Turkey call I made My daughter as a Keepsake when she was about 5 Years Old...I miss her beautiful Long Hair she had back then but it was her choice to donate it to locks of Love.

Those are some nice looking pots.Love the wood. I saw a bunch of turkey today standing in the rain in a field on Ashevilles Biltmore estate. Got me a little excited thinking about where I'm gonna take my first turkey this season,of course it won't be the Biltmore estate,lol. Hopefully it will be on gameland.

My Daughter

The Picture in this Call... You can tell this was a quick morning hunt and she had asked me to bring the turkey by her grand-mas to show her if I got 1 so that's why she looks half asleep lol

Winded Turkey

I was deer hunting during the week Sandy came by. The wind was rather blustery and I had contemplated getting down. I had my stand set up 20 yards behind a old tobacco barn. About that time I saw something move at the top point of the roof. Out came five turkey, one after the other. They had roosted in the barn. They got on the ground and I could hear their wings as they did. Came toward my corn pile and milled around a bit. I barely moved to get my camera, and they blended away and on down the edge.
Sometimes as I walked in to stand I could hear something in the barn. I figure they did this quite a bit more than you would think. I think there isn't any reason for you to worry about the wind getting them.

lol CR, Alot more Turkeys than they are barns around lol...As good as a turkey can see...I have seen them fly into trees and kill themselves when we would accidentally jump them in the middle of the night while Raccoon hunting...It's a tough life being a Turkey!!!!!!!!
