Hen Custom Boxes
Mooney hails from the great State of Missouri and has lived there
for the past 25 years. He has been an active hunter since the age
of 12 and has hunted most species of game, but Missouri was the
State that caught his passion for hunting the grand old turkey.
Tim grew up as a musician since the time he
could walk. As his interest peaked in hunting turkey he soon learned
to blend his talent into the art of call making. Having a natural
ear for music was a definite plus for Tim and it quickly allowed
him to learn the tonal qualities of various species of woods. Over
the course of several years he discovered the individual qualities
of these woods and the dramatic turkey sounds he could perfect through
the blending of them.
call making experience spans over a 25 year period. This coupled
with his artistic capabilities has helped him create decorative
box calls that are a true example of American Folk Art. Tim's art
work is done through the use of a wood-burning tool where he will
first draw then burn a variety of hunting scenes and gobbler related
art on the box surfaces.
box calls are made from many different woods to include: Walnut,
figured and burl Walnuts, Osage Orange, Sassafrass, Red Mahogany,
Red Cedar, Butternut, Rock Maple and Cherry. All woods are hand
selected by Tim to ensure quality craftsmanship before the calls
are built. Customers that wish to have a one of a kind box call
built can pick their choice of wood combinations.
produces a field grade call as well as those who wish to have custom
art work in the form of wood burning. All calls are genuine and
Tim guarantees not to sell seconds. Every call that is shipped from
the hunting grade to the collectors models are built with demanding
attention. Each call comes with a guarantee that if you are not
happy you can send it back within 10 days for a complete refund.
Tim is no longer producing his slate line of calls, but he will
build his box slate call by special request.
