My introduction to the outdoors was with my Grandfather while living at the Jersey Shore. Whether it was sitting with him listening to his hunting and fishing tales, training his dog, a day at the range, fishing for Fluke or slugging through the woods and swamps looking for a Whitetail he put the “Hunt“ in me. During the summers we spent our time fishing the Kawartha Lakes of South Central Ontario and when the move to Canada was made it really got interesting. We spent our summer days on the lake and the fall in the marshes and woods. He introduced me to a number of family members all of whom helped shape me into a deer and moose hunter as well as an avid waterfowl hunter.
It was in 2007, after having been hunting or around hunting for 18 years and waiting out the winter months to get out training my dogs, I decided to take up call making. It started with a high end call that I had purchased and after looking at it for a while I decided it wouldn’t be that hard to make. I couldn’t be any more wrong. I purchased a lathe and some turning tools and a game call kit. It then progressed to buying a public jig to make my own tone boards. The first game calls were crude to say the least, they did make a ducky sound but nothing what I wanted them to be. After years of trial and error I have created duck calls & goose calls that not only look good, but sound good too.
