I grew up just thirty miles west of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, in a little town called Gordo. I did not grow up duck hunting. It wasn't until I was in my twenties when I traded some work for a duck hunt. One hunt and I was hooked.
I am a preacher, husband, father, and lineman. I started making calls in my shop just to see if I could. I loved it. And I still love it. To be able to take a piece of material, shape it, and create what I believe is a work of art, gives me deep gratification. To see a project from start to finish; from scrap material to a striking creation, made by my own hands.
I began to show my co-workers my creations and through their motivation and interest to buy, I created more. In an effort to make them available to all duck hunters, I began to test my creative skills and experimented with various objects to see how well they would tolerate being encapsulated in acrylic. This lead to some very unique duck calls. I continue to try my hand at new and unique creations. Some turn out exactly how I envisioned, while the others remain on my "Wall of Shame."
Thanks for stopping by and if you have an idea of something you would like to see me create, drop me a line. I will give it try.
From time to time, I will post pictures of our hunts and pics of new calls, "Shame worthy" calls and my hunting buddy, Biscuit, on Facebook. So check it out and share it with your friends.
Thank you and God Bless,
John 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
