TRAVEL CALL 2018

Post by Gobbler » March 23rd, 2018, 9:25 am

Hi Everyone,

Back in the day the NWTF had a travel call section that had allot of interest. When the NWTF Board shut down the travel call seemed to die with it.
Gobbler Nation was contacted by Lausman Calls out of Kentucky about starting up a travel call this spring. Cindy Lausman had her husband Carl make up a beautiful call called "Turkey Vodoo" for our travel call. Myself and a few other board members agreed to do a travel call this spring 2018 and see if this grows into something for the future. Its is a great way for call makers to showcase their wears.

I hope you enjoy this post.

Also be patient as we are learning as we go.

OK....

I received the call first. Opening week of the Florida Gobbler Season. I was hunting with Shane Simpson of Calling All Turkeys on some Public land hunts I had lined up.

We hunted in North Florida first on a giant WMA and the going was tough to say the least. We had many encounters with other hunters. Many set ups and many distractions. You can actually see the this hunt on the first episode of Calling All Turkeys so I am not going to go into a long explanation of how it all went down. I used the travel call and got this gobbler to answer but in the final moments of the hunt Shane called because its his show and he is a prick. :mrgreen: Just kidding. The other hunt later in the week when we went to south Florida is also filmed and will be in the episode. Now with this hunt Shane was up to bat and I did most of the calling on the travel call. The Gobblers really loved it. Yes...It did hurt Shane's feelings. We went silent at the end and that did the trick on the two Gobblers and they came in. Here are some pictures of the kills.

The next stop for the travel call will be in Georgia with Vaturkey and maybe Savduck.

If it doesn't make it to be with them, I'll be glad to introduce it to S Ga.

I have one of Carl's persimmon poppers. It is one of the best calls I've ran. That's saying a lot. Ricky turned me o to them last year at the convention, and he was right. They make some great calls.

MMMMMMMMMMMMM .. It appears the Travel Call is going to be handled in a Democratic way .... are participants all hand select chosen ahead of time and will be announced when they get done using it.
Not at all like on the NFTF Forum was run, where everyone put what species and dates hunting, and were selected in individual drawings per species. :LMAO:

If ya' want to have a Gould's in on it for a Royal Slam, it'd Mexico from 4/25 - 5/1 ;)
Oh that's right, its already booked for 18 :banghead:

Doug, good to see Shane & yourself have a great time again this year as you did last year also!!


When do the GN Travel Call Hats come out??? :cheers:
ever wonder where the white goes when the snow melts??

Soiltester,

I think we are just taking a swing at this travel call thingy. If it works out for you and the dates match up, then it will be sent to you. I don't believe there's any type of "process" established yet???
