Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and view this video. Mark is in the process of teaching me how to use each of the calls in our shop. I don’t think I have enough air in my lungs for all of this! It amazes me that you can make sounds that will bring a deer into shot range with just a couple of quick blows through a call. This is truly a skill that takes time to acquire! I can make almost any call make noise but to produce a realistic sound that doesn’t make the deer turn and run is going to take some time. Thankfully Mark is a patient teacher.
Add a little dye and acrylic stabilization and you’re on the road to discovering a new universe.
I’m learning how to call in a bull elk using The Sweet Talker. Mark is a very patient teacher as I play around with the sounds that come out of this call. The Sweet Talker is a closed reed, bite and blow cow elk call that produces the high-pitched calls of a cow elk in estrous. Perfect for your next elk hunt. Mark has also made some really beautiful one of a kind calls out of a dyed stabilized piece of birch. These new calls sound great and are BEAUTIFUL! but there are only three available from this piece of wood.

Come along as Mark tries to teach me how to call squirrels with our squirrel calls. We used “The Shaker” and “The Barker”. I have been playing with the calls and making them make noise but I’ve never really tried to truely use them in the way they are intended to be used. We’ve had a lot of comments about how to use the calls so we thought we’d show you.
