Davis has been hunting ducks since he was twelve years old and before
that he sat in the blind with family starting at age seven. At age
of 42 he is now a well-seasoned and experienced duck hunter. As
a young man it was not uncommon to ride a Gray Hound bus for 60
miles wearing hip boots and carrying his gun in a case to hunt with
his brother for the weekend. Dedication, even at that early an age,
doesnt get much deeper than that. Paul hails from Boise Idaho
but was raised in Logan Utah.
Making custom calls came from frustrations
experienced from buying questionable quality calls over the years.
Mass produced calls just didnt do it for Paul. About seven
years ago he purchased his first custom-made call, a bamboo caller.
A hard call to work he learned how to blow it and with practice
and got very good with it. The call was kept on themirror in his
truck until his lab puppy tried it out one day for himself and crushed
decided to made himself a new bamboo call but he wanted to improve
his call making beyond the delicate bamboo call he first bought.
He wanted to make calls that would hold up better over time. Now
he makes both Louisiana and Arkansas style calls. The calls are
made from Cocobolo, Osage Orange, Rosewoods and others woods upon
He named his calls "Coim Calls"
after his late father. It was a nickname his grandfather gave his
father. He has no idea what it meant to his grandfather. These days
Pauls best times are spent duck hunting with his two sons
Bob and Dylan and their lab Nuts. When we talked, Paul said how
important it was to take kids with us when we go into the field.
Its valuable time spent, sharing friendships, building a young
persons character and imparting knowledge and experiences they can
take through life with them.
