Howdy all,

Collecting predator calls is one of my favorite hobby besides guns and motorcycles. I like to see the intricate work and craftmanship that call builders display on their calls.

Please post any custom made call you possess or like to use. Any kind of calls is welcome be it calls for predator, turkey,duck, deer, elk, etc...

Open reed distress call and closed reed squeaker by RR Calls. The squeaker sounds amazing and is very easy to use.

One from Yotehntr. It looks amazing and sounds not bad at all. It has Red Mallee burl barrel with a hippo ivory bead. It is followed with an o-ring fitted buffalo horn toneboard with hippo ivory insert. Impressive craftsmanship.

One more closed reed call, this time made by Nick Nelson. Made of Bubinga wood, it's a shade over 3" long and CA finished inside and out. It's set up with a double inhale / exhale squeaker and can also do some killer bird distress with some practise.

Here's a cool little call made with a one piece open reed out of Elk antler. It will do some wild cottontail out to fawn distress. There's a paw print on the side for some cool factor and a little antler tip on a string to hook your lanyard around. If you look in the pics, it also has a small paw print on the cut end of the antler. Made by Dirt's Custom Calls.

This call was named "Double Trouble" by the maker. It is a forked piece of deer antler tipped with stabilized ash burl. This call gives you the option to pick two enclosed reeds, one is jack rabbit distress and a coaxer.

Here is a ORION Call made from Buckeye Burl. The Burl in this one is a darker gray has been CA stabilized and has a high gloss CA finish. The call is tuned with an ORION distress tone board. It's about 2.75 inches tall and can rip some raspy distress calls.

After months of waiting, I finally got the call I ordered from Tony Tebbe and deceided to get another one as well.

The first one is a small howler that Tony worked on. He hand scraped it down with a piece of broken glass, just like the traditional powder horn makers did 100 years ago, before he sanded and polished it (notice how thin is the bell).

This little howler can scream female or pup and can raise the roof on coyote/pup distress. It features a TT 2 toneboard.

The second one is a classic one piece TT antler distress call.

Thanks Brad,

You can get Rare Earth Calls on this website (http://www.allpredatorcalls.com/brands/Rare-Earth-Predator-Calls.html) but I recommend you join a forum called Predator Masters instead. Robert sells his calls for way cheaper overthere.

Not a predator call but I can't think of anywhere else to post it. Here is a Claro Walnut grunter with coffee inlays and antler end caps with a CA finish. It was expertly made by a call maker named Jason Rode. These pictures were sent to me by Jason. I'm supposed to receive it any day now.
