Every hunter knows that finding game is the hard part of hunting. There are 2 schools of thought here. First is that you walk all over to find the game. The second is that you "call" the game to you!
There are call mechanisms that you can install in your turnings for turkey, duck and even crow. I bet that you can even find more!
So if you're a turner and you fall into the second train of thought, then turning wood calls is for you!!
|Turning a Turkey Pot Call |
By: Mike Stafford
Woodturners sometimes get asked to make unusual things when people learn of their hobby. Such was the case when a friend to whom I owe many favors mentioned in conversation that I should try my hand at turning a turkey pot call. I told him I didn’t know the first thing about turkey calls. I don’t hunt and haven’t hunted in almost 50 years. I don’t have anything against hunting; it is just not something I do.
|Quick and Easy Duck Call|
By: Byron Young
In this tutorial, Byron explains how to make a duck call out of the Stat Premium Duck Calling Kit. He explains how to turn the barrel and then how to assemble the duck call. Byron makes it easy so now you have no excuse to make one for yourself.
|Turning a Crow Call|
By: Alex Williams
In this photo tuturial, Alex Williams, a professional call maker shows how he makes his famous crow calls. These spindle turnings are easy to mount on the lathe and have a couple of critical measurements in order to fit the call inserts. Alex covered those points extremely well insuring tht you'll be successful with this project.
In addition, Alex covers the fact that the calls can be made not only from wood but from alternative materials. Alex shows the turning with an "Acrylester" blank.
If you've got hunting in your blood, this quick and easy project might have them running to you!!
