I love the Hustlin' Hen by Billy White and was pleased to hear that they can still be ordered directly from Billy White. He also makes a long box called "The Cackler Box". I'm in the market for a good long box and I'm thinking of ordering that one. Just curious if anyone has used this one?

Billy has a kind of funky shaped slate called an "Alabama Cackler" but i don't of any other Billy White box calls called a "Cackler". If he does have one, Robbie at Solo Archery in Albany would be the guy to ask about it. HTH, Robert

Wasn't the cackler box made by a man named Lipscomb? He & Billy were good friends? Lipscomb is in Mickles first book?

Billy makes a long box called the "Cackler Box".

I have one and it is a good long box with with a raspy break to it.

The slate call is a trough type call with the wooden sound chamber held together by rubber bands, a pretty unique and good sounding call also. I think it was patterned after an old style call that was made by another maker in Alabama. I have one of these also that I run in the woods sometimes.

VALongbeard do you like yours a lot? Does it cut good? I really need one I can cut good and loud on for locating birds, then I switch to a mouth call. I use to have a long box by Doug Camp but it fell out of my turkey vest last year while hunting :(

I'll probably order one today...

I ran one at a show a few years back and it sounded great, but I didn't buy it. I'm regretting that now, since the price has gone up by quite a bit.

Have you tried a Scott's Cutter?
No. I'm not really "in the know" on longboxes... I've only ever owned one and that was my Doug Camp that I lost. So I'm in the market for a good one.

My hustlin' hen sounds so good I figure Billy's long box must be good as well.

Yeah I've heard it....... they scream......:bounce:

got three screaming hens, made by the inventor of the design Junior Robinson, he taught Doug how to make them and allowed him to use the design, Doug used to work for Junior building calls and is where he learned.


Also have 5 or 6 of the unfair advantage double sided short box and the sidewinder single, a couple of those were made by Doug, the rest Junior.


SheldonMOAC is the biggest collector I know of Doug Camp and Junior Robinson calls, he's got a display case full of em.

Hey guys I have an alabama cackler I bought from solo a couple of years ago (paid $90) the only trouble with it is the striker tip flare was sanded off to make it like a regular striker. Needless to say I couldn't play it very well so it's been hanging in my barn in the package with the price tag on it. I think that was the last time I went to Solo. Anyway if anyone wants it make me an offer. I'll get the camera and run out and take a few pics of it. Let me know through pm and i'll email the pics cause i don't think I know how to post them here.
