    What's Your Favorite Box Call?

    Cleaning, chalking and running some box calls this morning. What's your favorite? I like my ET Ed Terefenko and Bruce Wurth American Friction long boxes when I need to reach out. Merriam's can't resist my Marvin Robbins Timberline and Joe Slaton Mother Lode short boxes. Can't wait to try my newest box call from Matt Van Cise's High Class Calls!

    I normally use my box calls to get them fired up and finish them with a mouth call when movement can be a problem.

    Can't say I'm loyal to any particular brand. I use a combination of push button, box, slate, glass, and reeds.
    Turkey hunting is the most fun you can have chasing a bugle.... I mean a gobble!

    That is a stack of box calls! I've got one, that Lynch in the bottom right of your photo. It was the call my grandpa used, I still have it in the original package. I've never used it, don't really like the way box calls sound, and I'm much more versatile on a mouth call. Mouth calls take up far less room too..
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    Great photo!

    I stopped using box calls years ago because for me they are too cumbersome and require 2 hands. I haven't packed one in 10 years.

    I’m with Fink and mallard. Don’t really like the way box calls sound, but mostly they’re a pita to haul around. Never had any luck sealing the deal with them, either. Slate calls when I can get away with the movement, mouth calls all the time. Some of those box calls are beautiful works of art, though.
    Live to hunt, hunt to live.

    Agreed Fink but man a buddy of mine had a custom box call from PA that just flat fired birds up! Wish I could remember the name of it.

    For me it's a slate and a couple mouth calls... I've gotten away from carrying around a bunch of calls, just my style I guess.

    Todd, Would it have been a Rohm Brothers call? They live very close to me and are turkey hunting / call making legends.

    No, not Rohm Brothers... I'm thinking it was really small time. Oh well.

    I like the Rohm calls also. One of the calls in the picture is a Dale Rohm call from 2003 (NWTF Edition). I gave another to a close friend who lost one in an accident.
