I've only got a few so far, I never bought any before last season.

Rut N Strut copper in a laminate pot
David Halloran aluminum in a birdseye maple pot
Giving Glory aluminum over slate in a cocobolo pot

I can tell Mr 01Foreman400 is strongly considering trading that measly collection of his for that hard to find "Fighting Purr Combo Kit" you're carrying there...just don't give in too easily:D



Actually I had a guy hunting with me back in the 90's right after they came out and one day he got back to the truck with a gobbler over his shoulder and said

" Man! You won't believe it, I couldn't get him to break and come in until I pulled out the fighting purrs and then he ran in"......I went to Walmart the next day and bought me a set.

I don't have many calls, but I have box calls made my Bob Harwell, Jack Scott, Albert Paul, David Hollaran, and Russel Beard. I'm hoping to have my two Steve Mann box calls by this spring also.

As far as other calls go, I've got more mouth calls than I can remember from several people: Tom Teasers, Tim Sanford, etc...

Never have bought any pot calls or trumpets really. Might add some to the arsenal this year though.

I don't have any custom calls, but...

I do have 2 Lohman Thunderdomes that I would not sell for $1000 each. Nearly every bird I have killed since 95 has fallen to this call. They don't make them anymore. I did I have 3, but I wore one of them completely out. I used the call so much that the call eventually got a whole in the middle of the slate. Finally it gave up the ghost and the slate fell apart.

If anybody here has one and wants to sell it I will gladly send you $100's for everyone you have.

I remember those sman. Not sure but I think that was Ricky Joes creation for Lohman

I'm partially deaf in one ear because of turning one towards me when i was cutting on it

Somehow I have been able to hold on to the striker that
came with it but not sure about the call

I'll look around and see if I still have it..if I do I'll give it to you.

If you do and you don't use it by all means let me know. I don't have any of the orginal strikers left. If you find I will meet you whenever and where ever I need to.

A chest full of calls that I've collected over the years which include.....Lamar Williams (several boxes and paddles), Frank Cox (several trumpets and pot calls), Doug Camp (several box calls and paddles), old Lynches (50's-60's), to mention a few.

Recent additions......several nice pot calls from Tim (Rutnstrut)...one in particular he parted with.

Too many other calls to remember. Too lazy this late to go through the display case. Mostly older factory stuff from 30-40 years ago as well as other call makers.

Had a few chances to buy an occasional Neil Cost call within reason, and recall thinking...man...I've got too many calls already...I passed.....dah:banginghe

Do have a nice autographed Neil Cost NWTF Chapter cap though in the case though right next to one from Walter Parrot...that he gave to me after hunting with him back in the 90's.

Nothing really special except for Tim Sandford's 3.25" Copper over Glass and Tommy Walton's Call Girl. My Dymanic Calls Slate over Glass in black cherry is pretty good. Have several box calls but nothing in the class as have been mentioned before.

Am expecting another Tim Sandford call as I've got another one of his in the works. After the huge success with his copper pot, I gave him another challenge.

I have been very fortunate since I started making Turkeys Calls in 98-99 to be able to aquire a lot of different Tuyrkey Calls by making trades with other Call Makers, off of E-Bay or Buying them directly from other Call Makers and Freinds at the Shows that I attend every year! I have a bunch more Calls (i.e. Wingbones, Trumpet Calls, Pot Calls, Box Calls etc. etc.) that are in Storage Boxes under those shelfs or in another Cabinet beside those shelfs! I try to kill a bird with a call, write the kill date on the bottom and then retire it! I find myself using mostly calls that I have made and been successful with over and over again! The only thing better than calling one in and harvesting him...is calling one up with a call you made and harvesting him!

Seeing Stumpy's crowded collection of trumpets caused me to remember sneaking into my parents room when I was a kid and getting into the big box of Valentine candy my dad gave my mom.

I would eat several pieces and thenspread out and re-arrange what was left so it didn't look like any were gone.........

I wonder if Stumpy would even notice?:biggrin2:

Out of my pot calls I can honestly say that the best 5 are:
1. A tie between a gary anderson bubinga crystal and a tim sandford copper
2. Tim sandford glass
3. Redbeard osage slate(it will sing)
4. Larry gresser copper
5. Reynolds aluminum(new design he just started last season)

I got to say Tim sandford makes a great turkey call!

Is that Tim's new 3.25 in copper? If so what's your impressions between it and Larry's copper?

Well I just played em and its a pretty close race. I have the gresser in that pink wood and tim's is a ziricote. Seems like larry's is a little louder at the top end of the yelp but I don't think there is much difference as far as sound. I would say that Tim's call has a little more rasp at the end of the yelp. I have tried to play both to compare them before and I would have to say usually Tims call has the edge but I'd give the edge today to larry's call. Tomorrow I may like Tims call more but that's how good both sound. They are both excellent calls!
