I started making turkey calls in December of 2006 after several weeks of below zero weather and being bored out of my mind. I started with just a lathe at first and quickly realized I needed a band saw, drill press, router and several other woodworking tools.

Once I had a small wood shop put together I started making just a few calls at a time and testing them out. After much trial and error I started to make some pretty nice sounding calls. In the spring of 2007 I was fortunate enought to sell several calls, mostly to friends and acquaintances. Many birds were taken that spring and I knew I was on to something.

Over the following summer and winter I continued to try to improve the sound of my calls. I try to make my calls sound as realistic as possible. Since then I've been fortunate enough to win over 30 NWTF National Call Maker awards including the 2011, 2014, 2015 and 2017 Tom Turpin Award.

All awards aside, the greatest joy I get is from hunting and harvesting a trukey with a call that I've made. In addition to that I enjoy hunting with friends and hearing stories about how other hunters have taken birds with my calls. What once started out as a hobby has grown into one of the major passions of my life.
