Pot Call Hunter

I was wondering if there are any Turkey hunters here that use a Pot Call?

Bullie I would like for you to do me a favor. I have two pot calls I would like to send to you to be used and returned to me. I'll pay the postage both ways. I have had these pot calls for some time and have never been able to use them. I can no longer hunt. These pots are very special to me and I would really like to see them used at least once. One is Aluminum and the other is glass.

The shotgun shell striker came with the Glass pot. The striker sitting on the Aluminum pot, I made.
If you will PM me your mailing address I'll get these off to you right away.

Thank you Bullie. The pots were made by a good friend of mine. Don't worry if you should damage them in some way. They were made to hunt with. Stuff happens when you use something for the purpose it was designed. Please feel free to dress the pots to your liking. If the strikers won't work for you. Use any striker you find that works.

I'll try to get them in the mail tomorrow.

Bullie, the calls are on their way. There's a prepaid mailing label in the box with the calls and strikers. Hopefully they will be there by Saturday.

I didn't send this one. It's the first pot call that Tim made for me. I was using it when I killed an Eastern Turkey here in East Texas. TP&WD had re-introduced the Easter Turkey some years ago and the flock had gotten large enough to hunt.

Bullie, you should cherish these calls and send them back with some fresh smoked turkey.

I have spent the last few minutes running these calls. I immediately found a sweet spot on the aluminum call. I really like it's sound.

The first thing I noticed are how much smaller these calls are than the pots I have and see used. They are a thinner and have a smaller diameter than the Morgan pot I pulled out of my vest for comparison.

After a few more minutes of playing with them, I like the glass pot very much too. They have an unusual exposed... uhmmm guess it is a sound board of some type. I can really get some volume out of the glass call without getting "squawky".

They are obviously very carefully built and of excellent quality. There is also no doubt why they hold so much value to you. I will have mixed feelings when shipping these back to you Ironwood. I have no doubt that if I can find a turkey these calls can say, "I love you..c'mere!" to him.

Thank you Bullie. I'm glad you like the sound of the pots. I'm looking forward to what happens when you take them to the woods.

Yeah, it's not looking good for your weekend. Also looks like winter is coming back there and here. Oh well you'll just have more time to practice with the calls. :) Jeanne would always chase me out to the barn when I started practicing with the calls. :(

Ironwood, if I can catch a break in the weather this weekend I am gonna put your calls in the woods. I'm off the next four days but tomorrow morning looks like my best shot to not get rained on. Weather has not been timed for a weekend hunter at all...
