Teasers Custom Calls
Walton is the type of person who enjoys nothing better than spending
his time in the great outdoors. He was raised in Covington, GA and
at a very young age began hunting with his grandfather. Growing
up he spent every spare minute he could either hunting or fishing,
and when the State of Georgia opened its first turkey season Tommy
was ready with gun and hand and hasnt missed a season since.
He contributes his love of the outdoors and turkey hunting to his
family, and is passionate about introducing young children to the
sport of turkey hunting. A favorite motto you will often hear Tommy
say: "If you keep your kids hunting, you wont be hunting
worked for 27 years in the retail side of the meat processing industry.
Acting as a supervisor over a three state region he was constantly
on the road. This career took a lot of time away from his family
and limited his ability to spend the kind of time he wanted with
his son in the outdoors. In 1999 he felt it was time for a career
change and he got completely out of the meat processing industry
and decided to begin his own landscaping business. This change affords
him the time to hunt and fish as he pleases and spend the quality
time with his family and especially with his son.
started making calls for two reasons. First he preferred a quality
call verses a mass produced and second he desired a call that would
give him consistent realistic sounds. Tommy has worked with a variety
of different woods and materials looking for that perfect sound.
He prefers walnut for his pots and laminate for his strikers because
of the density and sound quality. Slate is his choice of material
because of the realistic sound that can be produced. After making
them for family and friends he decided it was time to put them on
the market. Low and behold, what started as just a hobby has now
turned into a full time business which produces 500 - 700 calls
calls themselves go by the name Tom Teasers because they produce
the sound of a hen and when used in the field they always seem to
tease the gobbler. Each call is hand made by Tommy and something
he takes pride in considering the quantity he is able to produce.
Tommy also produces a line of diaphragm, crow and grunt calls. Stop
by and visit his website at www.tomteasers.com and be sure to tell
him you found him on CCO.
