As most of you all know, I was fortunate enough to win the OK state turkey calling contest a while back. Well, to day I get this beautiful anodized aluminium call in the mail from Sam at Gooserbat Game Calls. Sam is a top notch guy, this post is not about me encouraging you to buy his calls, but to express how floored I am that he did this for me.

I can't wait until Friday to call in a longbeard with it!!!!

How awesome is that!!
I was going to ask if your going to keep it for a trophy, but you said it was going to be used......I'm thinking it would be twice as awesome to have scratches on it, and a pic of the turkey killed with it mounted somehow. ;) That would be my choice.

The cool thing is that it is anodized aluminium, so it never has to be buffed or sanded. I have already been playing it, it sounds really good! It has the pitch somewhere between a slate and a glass call. I will use it for sure this season. I think a dead bird with that by its head will be a really cool picture!

Yup! I got one of the anodized ones at walmart years ago when they first came out. Not the best.
I went with a guy last year that used one and really liked it. Builders tend to learn and innovate over the years. What kind of striker does it use?
Wood, carbon fiber?

Reason I'm asking about the striker, is that I'm an amature wood turner, and would be more than happy to turn a custom one from walnut, Osage orange, mahogany, or hackberry to congrats you on the win. :D.
Let me know your preference of wood, and it will happen.

Your reply came in before mine. I don't have any seasoned persimmon. I need to cut some and let it start drying.
