Fall seasons occur when turkeys are in flocks, and the typical fall hunt strategy is to "bust up" or "scatter" a flock of turkeys, and then use turkey calls to bring the game back. Turkey hunters usually wear full camouflage, from head to toe, to conceal themselves from the wild turkey's excellent eyesight. This includes pants, shirt, hat, boots, gloves, and a mask. Many hunters wear a turkey vest with a cushion to sit on and compartments to carry their calls and dead turkeys.
By the early 1900s, the vast turkey population had been decimated in North America because of habitat destruction, commercial hunting, and lack of wildlife regulations. Conscientious hunters, wildlife agencies and conservation organizations intervened and turkey populations rebounded dramatically. Incredibly, more than 7 million wild turkeys now freely roam North America, with active populations in every U.S. state but Alaska. Wild turkeys are also hunted in parts of Mexico and Canada. The hunter will learn turkey call techniques to attract a turkey to their location.
Calls used in turkey hunting fall into two categories: (1) Air and (2) Friction activated. Air calls include diaphragms, wingbone calls, Turpin yelpers, trumpet calls and snuff tube calls. Friction calls include box calls, pot and peg calls, scratch boxes, and push pin calls. These turkey calls are relatively easy to use and even a beginner can use them to call in a prize winning turkey. Common locator calls include Owl hooters, Crow calls, Hawk calls, and anything that will produce a loud noise.
When we founded Makemholler we had one goal in mind; to build heirloom quality turkey calls. Turkey calls worthy the carry with it's stories and memories of loved ones and epic hunts. A call to be passed from father to son or mother to daughter for years to come. These calls are gifts and we would hope that the first memory with every call is of the person that gave it to you. With custom laser engraving and custom storage cases, we can produce a unique gift for the one you love that will surely MAKEMHOLLER!
Every Makemholler turkey call is handcrafted with old world construction and instrument quality wood. We hand tune each call to give to the user a realistic raspy hen tone. We are the only turkey call to offer the Resonator (a floated metal disk in the top) for added rasp and maturity. Every call we build has an adjustable top with a steel threaded insert and bolt to allow the user to adjust tone and action to every hunting scenario. Good luck and enjoy.
