Creek Game Calls
Gaus started turkey hunting at the age of 14 while living on the
family farm that he still calls home. This taste for the turkeys
stayed with him and he has become an avid fan.
remember driving down the road by our house and seeing turkeys out
in the field. Thats where it all started for Darin.

the Gobbles, calling back to the birds and just being in the woods

bug to make and call up a bird with a call he made. Like most, he
experimented with ideas and material till he found what he liked.
What was developed was a friction call that features a copper playing
surface and Grassy Creek Calls was started. Although
the first calls made were wood Darin quickly changed over to a plastic
part for the main parts of the call. It is his feeling that the
plastic produces a rich louder sound. Each of the calls comes with
a pair of strikers. They feature a plastic and a wood striker with
a molded handle. Each striker will produce different tones when
used on the call. One of the unique features of this call is that
the strikers can easily be stored right in the base making them
