If it turns out good I'll post of pic of it too. Thought it was a pretty neat idea,and.... Read More
Here is a picture of my son and daughter with the custom turkey call that they won from Spursuader. They are both really excited to try it out next year on our next turkey hunt. I didn't tell them that I posted their story on here so they had no idea about the contest.
Thanks very much to Mr. Murphey for making these beautiful calls and giving them away in a contest.
Made another Wing-Bone Call Holder from a Box Turtle Shell to add to my Redneck Decor. I have made several of these when I find a decent Turtle shell in the Timber. The Black you see at the Top there is actually blood stain from where a pellet hit lol...I gotta start shooting better lol.
