Moon Game Calls
started turkey hunting the very first year Alabama had a season.
Like many of us he was hooked. It took him two years to get that
edge on the turkey and get his first bird. When he started he had
an old box call, his dads quail gun, no camo and nobody to
learn from. He figured it all out the hard way as to what worked
and what did not. Since that time Alan has guided and hunted every
season since then and figures hes still learning.
call making hobby started in the early 90's. Like many call makers
he began with the standard box call. These first production calls
turned out to be the same size as most calls on the market. But
as time went on he realized that the call was just to big and hard
to handle. So he began experimenting in the shop and looked for
ways to down size the call. After several modifications he felt
he had finally built the perfect call. One that was small enough
to handle but still had great tone and volume.
lot has changed for New Moon Game calls since the 90's. Today Alan
offers up a full line of custom friction and trumpet calls to complement
his one sided box calls. His friction calls offer something most
calls don't. The ability to play both sides of the call. Each side
of the call has been tuned to provide the most realistic wild turkey
sound. Each friction call is accompanied with a hand turned striker.
Trumpet calls are becoming more prevalent among hunters and Alan
offers a complete line of them as well. Trumpets are a special order
item with Alan with the customer being given the option of choosing
their desired wood and design. All trumpet styles are fitted with
hand turned buffalo horn mouth pieces.
woods used are walnut and box elm, but Alan does not limit himself
to these woods only. He also makes calls from Alaskan yellow cedar,
locust, mahogany, poplar and sassafras. When a call is sold it is
100% woods ready. Every call is fine tuned and made to Alans
exacting standards. If it isnt right it goes into the scrap
pile. No call will leave his shop unless he would hunt with it himself.
