Make your own turkey call.....it\'s easy. Bear with me on this post. I have made a turkey call out of an old turtle shell I had found while deer hunting last fall. It was pretty stained up but I decided to try my hand at call making. I used an old piece of slate that was about 1/8" thick. I scored it with a utility knife to make it roughly fit the opening of the shell. For support on the opening of the shell for the fragile slate I used a piece of nylon plastic sheeting cut to 3"x1/2"x 1/8" thick in size and fitted on the lip of the shell on the inside of the opening. I epoxyed the nylon to the slate and then the entire piece of slate to the shell with a notch cut out of the shell for the nylon. I ground off the excess with the belt sander. Be very careful not to chip out the slate while grinding. SLOW is the word. I decided to leave the shell natural the way I found it. I made it look entirely different by using my buffing wheel on my grinder with some jewelers rouge. It polished up pretty well I think. The pictures really don't do it justice. It does have a pretty good sound if I say so myself. If anyone wants me to make them one.......forget it.
