    Very fine looking calls. And, I'm sure, great sounding.
    Would you mind sharing where you get your slate?

    I sure hope so Vaughn. There were over 40 birds taken using my calls of this style this year. Still waiting on trophy pictures from most of those to put on my website

    And, I say: Thank you, much appreciated. All I have been able to locate is much too thick.

    Lee,
    Those are really good looking calls... I've made a few and have been told they sound good, but mine are open slate on one side and the sound holes on the other... do you scratch the slate through the center hole and is the backs solid or are they drilled as well.... would like to see both sides of one. I buy my slates from Pennslate as well, I have a supply for now, but thinking that Chuck migh be good source...

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
