Joe, The two birds on the right hand side where killed by me. The first bird weighted in at 21 lbs., 11 3/4 inch beard, 1 3/4 inch spurs, and would be in the top ten of the South Carolina typical record books if I would have turned in the paper work. The second one weighted in at 22 lbs., 10 1/2 inch beard, and 1 1/4 inch spurs. These two were killed in Santee Swamp on opening day of the 2012 season. Both gobblers were killed using the Sweet and Sassy Hen. I called these two birds across a creek along with about eight hens. The cutting ability on this call is unbelievable. I have been killing turkeys in Berkeley County since I was ten years old. I have blown just about every call that you can buy as far as mouth calls. They do not come close to the realistic sound of Lost Lake Customs Calls. The other two birds were also killed in Santee Swamp by my best friend who was using the raspy young hen. Those two birds where roosting on the opposite side of Santee River from where my buddy was hunting. Using the Raspy Young Hen he was able to make them fly across the River, and drop into full strut at 20 yards where he was able to kill both of them. The bird on the left was 19 lbs. , 1 1/2 inch spurs, and a 11 inch beard. The next bird from the left was 18 lbs., 1 1/4 inch spurs, and a 11 inch beard was well. My buddy and I agree that we will be purchasing Lost Lake Calls as long as they are on the market.
Thanks Caleb and to all my customers who make Lost Lake Custom Calls a success.
