loves to hunt turkeys and has actively been doing that for over
12 years. This interest has taken on the hunt in six states. Yet
his fondest moments were not his hunts but those of others. He loves
to guide hunters and work his magic in the yield. This is exceptionally
true when he gets the chance to guide a new hunter on one of his
first trips into the turkey woods.
This interest has moved Craig into the call-making
arena. He stared making calls a few years ago and has been selling
them for about a year. His calls are mostly double-sided box calls
but he also makes a boat paddle call as well. Currently Craig makes
only about 40 callers a year. These early calls are sure to become
very collectable as the talents are developed and refined. The calls
are developed around their sound and the primary objective is their
ability to call turkeys. Some favorite woods are cedar, butternut
maple and poplar. Craig also works with a few more exotic woods
like mesquite, zebrawood and goncalo alves.
He is not a high volume call maker and has
no commercial ambition to sell his calls. Each and every call is
hand made one at a time. Craig would not sell any call he would
not use himself or give to a friend. Calls are available by order
with a short wait. These calls are sure to make a great addition
to any call collection.
