I've had a small request for burning pot call strikers lately. It was the first time for me burning on a striker like this and it looks really cool. I made three to pair with some Bamboo Pot Calls I made and man are they nice!
I just finished these beautiful Bamboo Pot Calls for Christmas gifts. The bamboo pot were milled by my great friend Larry and I assembled & finished'em. I made 2 Ambered Glass over Slate and on Slate over Slate. All three received custom wood burning on the bottom. Being the Bamboo is from northern China I thought some Chinese writing was appropriate. I paired each call with a custom burned striker. Yellow Heart-Padauk-Dogwood. Thanks Larry for the awesome sounding pots.

Thanks again for another super photo. Pro staffer Jondean was busy harvesting some fine game this fall! He already sent us a great South Dakota Prong Horn Antelope photo then this beast of a Whitetail. A nice 5x5 Buck, Nice Job Jondean. I DIG your Camo!
My Brother Dennis and I were invited to Rochester MN for a late season goose hunt 2 weeks ago. We sat in an underground pit nestled in a small patch of corn. We had 16 total hunters and 2 guides/callers as well. They called in the geese and we tried to harvest 2 each. The total for the day was 14 and almost everyone went home with a goose that wanted one.
Late season goose is some of the tastiest goose of the year seeing they are concentrated near a feed source and fatten up for their migration. Here is a snap shot of the view from the HOLE!

I spent last Sunday in the field with some great friends and members of Shine Box Pro Staff chasing ringneck pheasants. Mother nature provided us with a 43 degree December day!! We took advantage and bagged some really nice birds. Colt had a chance to show his pointing skills and didn't disappoint me. We bagged 16 birds total and enjoyed 6 of them for dinner! I love Pheasant and Colt got some to.

Just Started this beast of a long box call, this will be a 2 sided masterpiece. Stick around to see it complete. Its made of Purple Heart, Yellow Heart, and figured Maple. This Call was made by a great friend and I'm just doing some art work on it.
Just wrapped up these 3 beauties. All gobbler heads are complete originals and never the same. The calls are made of Juniper/Black Walnut, Birdseye Maple, and Black Walnut/Bing Cherry. All three of the bad boys have the Magnetic Striker system in them.

Just released the last of the Maple Kings to ebay. I made these bad boys this summer for the 2011 Game Fair and decided to sell the one I kept. It sounds amazing and the figured Maple just sings. I do have materials left to make 2 more????
Just complete this Beautiful Claro Black Walnut Shine Box Turkey Call. I had to burn something on it. 2 Morel mushrooms lifting out of the grass was the idea. This call also has the MAG system in and was just placed on ebay.
