Made this deer grunt/call for my sons father-in-law for a Christmas present. He is a very successful businessman and it is hard to find something he doesn't already have. Just hope he enjoys this item made for him.
These are adjustable from a deep grunt to a high pitched doe bleat. I made the lower end (called the stopper end) much longer than usual. The longer tube replaces the traditional flexible plastic tube that act as a sorta echo chamber. I just don't like them, look chintzy, IMHO.
The wood is South American Citrus. Smelled real nice while turning. Not particularly fancy wood but hard and oily. Holds up to moisture well. A couple light coats of spray lacquer to make look fancy.
