What an experience! I had the chance to spend a little time with Ralph at his shop this past week. Wood chips out, turkey feathers in!   Gobble Gobble

I got to see and play the long box and mini boat orders that Ralph is filling and they are incredible, with awesome ranges from kee-kee to the gobble.

I also got to play Snuffy's personal collection of calls from all the callmakers you see and read about on the forum - and they were some of the best of the best.

Here's a long box Ralph just finished - it's maple with inlays over one of the most beautiful pieces of sycamore. It is awesome!

Got to play some of your calls Ernie - what a treat for me to be surrounded by such quality turkey callers.  He sure thinks the world of you as well!   Thumbs Up

Sounds like a great opportunity John. Ole Snoz makes a great call and I'm sure you were wanting to stay and stay.  I kind of like him doing some pre-scouting for me up in Ohio before me and burster make our trip there… Ha ha ha. even getting the opportunity at another old timer in Ernie's calls, you are spoiled for sure. Glad you enjoyed the time with a legend. Good hunting this fall to you guys

Got to spend some time with Snozz as well as Mr. Fetters up at Turkey Trot last week. When the Old Masters talk, it's time to listen. Tons of good stuff from those gentlemen.
