    They do sound good. My old yellar has a hole in it where a guy sit on part of my vest in my back seat and my striker punched the hole. It still sounds good and has called in many turkeys.

    There are 2 calls that I don't leave home without and unfortunately both are out of production. An original Ole Yeller
    and an HS Strut Grand National double slate over glass. To my ears and not just a few turkeys, they sound as good as anything out there.

    No...but had one of those too when I was kid. Mines more of a tube call. I’ll have to look. I have it all taped up. So when I was runnin the call people didn’t know what I was using lol. That made me laugh how serious I took this turkey thing going through my teenager years. Lol.

    Most likely a KH model 118 reed style owl hooter. The guts out of those are sought after for owl hooting contestants 'til this day! I've got a few. Got ol'yeller in a black pot, a green pot, and an orange pot. Got the yellow hammer too. Got a fairly large assortment of KH calls. My favorite is their "original " tube call. I was on their Prostaff for several years. Made it a point to have my picture taken with them at the NWTF Convention this year immediately following their induction to the HOF.

    I had one of those. Great sounding call until I lost it. Called in a lot of barred owls with it. I have a flex tone now. It sounds really good too.
