My New Video- 1/21/23- Custom Boxes For Public Land.

They sound good Billy; although my box of feet isn’t as big as yours it will be hard to convince me that a custom call will get a bird in range that an off the shelf call used by the same hunter in the same way wouldn’t. Cadence, volume and quantity “or there lack of” trumps tone in my experience.

Thanks- my answer was going to be my next post below.

      About these Custom Calls above.

  So why would a Guy pay extra money for one of these Boxes- be it Short,medium, or a Really good Long Box?

    Basically on Public/ MUAs- there are going to be plenty of Horseshoe/ Mouth Diaphragm  Expert Turkey Hunters out there as well as hopeful Guys using Boxes costing under 30 Bucks . Who Tuned all those Boxes- perhaps a few Thousand before being shipped out to Gander Mt. and the like?

    With a Custom Box Call going with you on a MUA- You have a Hen Tone that probably that Gobbler has not heard before.  And Tuned by a Expert Turkey Hunter.

 In Life often- you get what you Pay For.  Especially  for the Hunter who has Zero Turkey Woodsmanship Skills- a Custom Box gets him the best chance .

I don't care what box call one is using. Use it properly and you will kill turkeys. Yes even on public land.  I know one gentleman that gets his gobblers every year on public using push button calls. 

Expensive custom calls do not guarantee a bird. Knowing how, and when to use a call is more important, regardless of cost.

    My video above was aimed more at Novices hunting on MUAs with Expert Mouth Diaphragm callers out Hunting as well.

   Since many Novices don't develop  the Neccessary  Woodsmanship  Scouting the MUAs from Jan to late April- a Custom Box will even the playing Field with more experienced Turkey Hunters about and give that Gobbler a Tone that he has not heard before.

 They do sound great, and are good looking calls. 

I agree the new hunters don't necessarily have the woodsmanship needed, but purchasing a custom box call isn't the answer.  If one take a custom $100+ call, and doesn't know what, when or how to call, it's not going to help them.  And what happens when that smart 'ol tom hears that new tone from that custom call a few times? It's not so custom any longer.   It's more a game of cadence, tone, volume and when to call, and what call to use, not a custom call.  On windy days trying to locate a tom, I'll take a box call every time.

And a willing bird, which will come to just about anything

 There are different  ways  to fool a Old Gobbler on MUAs if one is a novice with No Woodsmanship skills and,I posted up my Scouting Journal this year for the first time to show Novices what it takes to be successful. I have Scouted 4 days already.

    Same with my video above. If one is willing to learn- the info is there.

 It can’t hurt, if nothing else if it adds confidence and keeps them in the woods for an extra minute it’s helping their odds. 
 

In my opinion there’s one thing that will constantly kill birds over everything else and that’s persistence. I don’t care what type of land you’re hunting, being there on the day the bird is willing to die trumps everything else. That’s very hard for a guy that can only hunt 5 or 6 days a season.
