·Deer Grunt Calls
Custom Slate Calls
Specializing in hand-carved, original, custom wild game calls. Most are investment grade calls, for the descriminating collector.
Ever since the National Wild Turkey Federation hosted the Grand National Custom Call competition back in 1995, Dave's slate calls have been the talk of the town!
He entered a terrapin shell slate that year, it won first place and no one has beaten him since!
These slate calls are literal art pieces of the highest degree.
Terrapin shell presentations are hand carved from the ground up. Feathers, mushrooms, woodland mice, animal tracks, deer antlers, all hand-carved and assembled to look like nature itself.
Dave's other slate calls feature hand-carved oak wreath with song bird strikers and carved leaves.
These are custom order only calls. Prices range from $500.00 - $2000.00
*Note: Field-grade terrapin shell slates are available on an order basis for $100.00.
Dave can create a variety of styles and designs,
each custom made for you.
The calls shown on these pages are examples of custom calls that Dave has made. To order your own, unique custom call, contact Dave for more information.
All calls are available by custom order.
(Lead time approximately 3-6 months)
Note: Many of Dave's hand-carved calls have won National Awards.
