I have a 30+ year collection of Glynn Scobey Calls, about 100 in all. They range from very early to last, many are one of a kind and or have a special letter attached. Some are FIRSTS made for me: the 1st duck calls he painted just hens on at my request, 1st painted wood duck, some made for Dale's Decoy Den anniversaries, multiple ducks or geese, etc. Most, if not all, are Mint, most have boxes and papers. If any one has a serious interest in all of them, contact me. I am not interested in breaking them up.

Duck Calls of Illinois, Bob Christensen. A terrific book by a terrific guy. Interested in Perdew calls? Olt calls? Or any other call made in Illinois before 1963? It is in here. Great photos augment detailed text. Brand new copies available. $39.95



Glynn Scobey Duck Call. This and the following call were made at approimately the same time, judging by the painting of the mallards on them. This one may be slightly later because it has the brown box. The address on this box is the same as on the gray box, Route 3. I can recall the box change and recall it was about 1978-1981. I am sure he used up all the old ones, but he probally began to use the brown ones when he got them, so for a while either box would get a call put in it and shipped out. In other words, there was a time he was using both boxes until the older gray ones were gone. Box top has slight sticker gum stain where the price sticker was removed. Did you notice this call barrel is longer than the ones to follow? Old brown insert. MIB $179

Early Glynn Scobey Duck Call in Old Gray Box. Roughly 1980 or earlier. I really hate to part with these gray boxes. MIB $199

Glynn Scobey Duck Call with Abercrombie and Fitch Logo on it. Glynn was very easy to work with and that is why he had his calls sold by the big guns of the sporting world: A&F, L L Bean, Cabelas, etc. (I hesitate to add Dale's Decoy Den, but he did make calls for me, 20 duck calls for our 20th Anniversary and 25 goose calls for our 25th. In both cases he made a unique barrel shape and said in a letter to me he would not use those shapes again, except if I wanted more. I never had any more of either made.) This box also has the early Route 3 address. It also has minor gum residue form old price sticker on the top. Of course it is signed by Glynn on the opposite side from the A&S logo. This should appeal to the old A&F collectors (when it WAS a top notch sporting goods seller) as well as Scobey collectors. You get two for one here. Scarce item of Glynn's calls. MIB $179

Glynn Scobey Goose Call. Wood insert dates it to pre 1985. Another of the "fat barrel" Scobey goose calls, although not as fat as the one sold below. Mint. $150

Glynn Scobey Goose Call. Wood insert dates it to pre 1985. MIB $169

Glynn Scobey Goose Call. Wood insert dates it to pre 1985. I have included this call as a show only. Style is exactly like the preceeding call, but this one is in a gray box, both boxes have the same "Route 3" mailing address. I believe this call is made of Butternut and is the only one of Glynn's calls I have seen with this wood. Sorry guys, this is going into my collection. I just wanted you to see it and compare the style with the call above and see both were shipped in different color boxes, further qualifying what I said above about him using both colors at the same time until he used up all the gray ones. NOT FOR SALE



P.S. Olt D2 Duck Call with World Logo. Automaticly dates this call 1956-1958, 60 years ago!. This call retains the banner on the insert. Like all the others known, the lettering is mostly vanished, but the banner is complete. Lettering on the call is worn in places, mostly where it says "Perfect Duck Call". Exc- $60

P.S. Olt D2 Duck Call. By way of comparing, there is no way to date any other Black D2. It could have been made anywhere from the late 50s right up until Olt closed the doors. Has wear the the two l's in Call as shown in photo. Nr Mint. $39

P.S. Olt D2 Duck Call. WHITE COLOR.This one is one of the colored Olts and carries a date of 1996 and was made for Tri-County for their annual banquet. Has "Tri-County, 1996, map of Illinois with goose flying over and duck on water within the state borders, 141" At most only 300 were made. Those not taken at the banquet were destroyed! So the number existing could be far less then 300. There were only 100 made in the earliest color. That is a tiny number. If you want the colors, buy them now because the prices are rising fast as more guys are trying to collect them all. Mint. $105

P.S. Goose Call. WHITE. This is the mate to the duck call above and has the same info on it. It just hit me that 1996 was 20 years ago! It seems like last week to me. But that is 20 years they could have been lost, damaged, or used and worn, or passed on to the the next generation. Mint. $89

P.S. Goose Call. YELLOW. Has the same Tri-County info on it, except date which is 1997 and the number is 125. Looking on it closely to grade it iI notice tiny indents in the barrel. Perhaps someone let his puppy hold it? I have had this call for 4 years and never noticed them before, they are that tiny. Yellow seems to be a popular color with collectors who just want an Olt that is not black for their Olt collection. Nr Mint. $99

P.S. Model 300 Goose Call. Wood barrel with L22 insert. Varnish was flaking before I put a coat of Ray's Gun Wax on it. (If you collect calls and don't have Ray's G. W. give me a call, 740-698-5060) Ray's is not a wax that will make it shiney, did doesn't get hard to buff. It is a magic formula Ray invented in his kitchen, I believe, to coat his traps without odor. It works on metal, wood, leather. Just amazing stuff. I have been selling it for almost 30 years. Try it. Exc- $25 (for info on the camo sack, see next offering below)

P.S. Olt Model 200 Duck Call. Wood barrel with D2 insert. The finish is fine on this call, but the paint has faded in the lettering. sdThe part of the stamp that says "Model" never hit the barrel. The "200" is there though. There is an old style camo pouch that holds both of them. If you buy both calls, I will include it for free, but you have to remind me.) Exc. $30



Mike McLemore Duck Call. This is an early call, Mike made this style from 1970-1977. (I met Mike and his dad at the Waterfowl Festival in Easton Md about 1980-84. I bought my first Chick Major call from them that year. It had the red, black and gold lable on it. I wasn't interested in new calls then, and didn't notice what Mike had of his own calls there. A year or two later, I remember him having the call with the wide flare to the insert and a small barrel. I think it was the style he used when he made his plastic call years later. Anyhow, I beleive this call is earlier than that.) This insert shows the beginings of the flare he used later, and he was trying to do something different with the barrel design. It has the signature label intact and complete. However, it is gold signature and border and difficult to see with the passage of time. Call has seen use, but not abuse. It shows handling marks and slight wear to the finish around the rim of the insert. Walnut barrel with cedar insert. Exc. $425

Jim Blakemore Sr. Tie tack (or lapel pin or hat pin, your choice) in shape of one of his calls. I clearly recall buying a whole card of them from him somewhere in the long ago. The paste on is of a green-winged teal head and it states "'83", meaning he made it in 1983. Mint, it still has the clasp on the back so you can wear it. $35

Broadbill Diving Duck Call. I love it when the seller calls these...fill in the blank: goose, crow, etc and then assures me it sounds "real good". This is the best Broadbill call I have ever had. It has the old hardware and is Mint. $59

Glynn Scobey Goose Call. Wooden insert dates this call to pre 1985. Yes, I know, he made calls with with wood inserts later, but they were all special calls in one way or another, type of wood, multiple paintings, etc. He didn't make regular production calls with wood inserts after 1985, according to him. Very light handling marks on barrel, so Near Mint. $185



Glynn Scobey Two (2) Goose Call. This call has a lot going for it. Most obvious are the two painted geese, which he did rarely. Glynn really loved good wood. This is a fine piece of tiger stripe maple. Glynn carefully put his name and the painted geese on the plainer sides of the call and allowed the tiger maple show on the other two sides. Photos show all four sides of one call. What they can't show is the striping shimmering as you turn it in the light. With each wholesale order I gave Glynn, I asked him for one special call to be added at his discrection. This is one such call. It has been in my collection since he made it, about 20 years ago. I have the box and papers for this call and they will be included with the purchase. This call is Mint in box with papers. SOLD (eel)



Glynn Scobey Goose Call. This is the fatest (most fat) Scobey barrel I have seen. Why I am not keeping it, I don't know. It measures 5 3/4 inches around the lanyard ring. It is an early call, 70s I think. All wood, barrel and insert. Some signs of use, but only lightly. Exc. You can buy it for your collection, or to use it, or, better yet, both. SOLD (dut)

Ralph True Large Model Duck Call. Ralph was a Minnesota call maker of some reknown around 1950. He made a smaller plastic reed call, and this big metal reed call which measures 6 1/2 inches tall. Checking around for comp pricing, the only one I found was for $295 and it was marked sold! Lucky you, you found this one, exactly like it and same condition, Mint. Scarce. SOLD (dtl)

Thurman McCann Laminated Duck Call. In the years he was wholesaling calls to me, I never knew him to make a laminated call. This is early, before he began to mark his name around the collar. Pretty call. The far side is the opposit of ths side in pic, that is, Walnut on maple. Rotate is 90 degrees and it is alternating walnut and maple vertical stripes. You will not hurt my feelings if you do not buy this call. If I come to my senses, I will put it in my collection. Mint with osage orange insert as made. There can't be many of these out there. $189

Ken Martin Small Letter Lemont Duck Call. This is the box Ken switched to after the sticker shock he got when he received the bill for the one in photo below that had the added Kelly green color in words and mallard heads. This box still has the light green background, but all print and graphics are black. Top fits very tightly and has a split seam, otherwise it is As New. Call is lightly handled with one small place where something white got into an indent. It could proably be removed easily. SOLD (dllz)



P. S. Olt 77 Goose Call. I had a fellow call me one time looking for the value on an "Olt 17 goose call". I tried to tell him it was an Olt 77 goose call. He resisted. Now that I see the label on this one, with part of the first 7 chipped, I can see why. Anyhow here is a nice 77, some chips to the label, maybe made by a bored hunter, on a wooden call that is Mint. $45

P. S. Olt 800 Goose Call. Label is worn, call is Mint. SOLD (ol)

P. S. Olt DR 115 Duck Call. The DR tells us it is a double reed call. Nice wood, notice the grain making a nice v or u 4 times below the label. Very light and small handling mark or two, a scratch in the label, so Near Mint. $55

P. S. Olt 66 Duck Call. Near Mint. Summer priced at $55 SOLD



Ken Martin Small Letter Lemont in Box. Scarce box! Ken liked these boxes with the green heads on the mallards--until he got the bill for their printing! He never had them printed in color again. His early small letter callbarrels seem to be slightly smaller than later ones. It is enough so I can tell by feel or glance that they are smaller. What are your thoughts on that? Back to this call, it is Mint with original knotless lanyard in place. Nice blonde wood. I have owned a lot of calls, but I prefer his duck calls above all but a reed and a half McCann for calling ducks. It takes very little air to work and it is a joy to handle. The box is what makes this pacage unique. These "green" (the whole top has a light green back ground with Kelly green heads and "Duck Call" in Kelly green also) boxes are highly sought after by avid Martin collectors. Box is Exc- condition. (I grade hard using the NFLCC standards for grading.), so Mint in Exc-, Scarce, box. SOLD (dnl)

Ken Martin Goose Call. Idaho Falls. One small indent (from a falling object?) is all that keeps this from Mint. $95

E. Stoffer Bean Lake Duck Call. I show the one blemish, where a piece of knot separated from the barrel. What makes this call special is the rare cedar insert. Most were maple. Exc+ $75

Oliveros Pull-em Crow Call. Pre Zip Code (before 1960). The original price on the box was $1.19. Mint in Exc box. $69

Johnson Crow Call. Johnson Standard Crow Call. Until I got these, I had only seen one other Johnson call, a duck call I sold a few years ago. Anyone who wants a really scarce, Mint in box crow call should not hesitate to jump on this one. It could be a long time before you see another one. Hand pasted label on box top states, "Hand made and tuned". I had six and I was going to keep two. Somehow they got in the wrong places and I sold too many, so now I only have one myself. This is the last one for sale. $59

L L Bean Crow Call. This one is not for sale, but I thought you might enjoy comparing it to the Johnson Crow call beside it. Obviously made for Bean by Johnson. Anyone have information on who, or what, Johnson calls was? This call will go with my L L Bean collection nicely. It is the first one I have seen. Any help out there?



Charles H. Perdew Crow Call. Nice call with little use. Black paint around inserts is complete, as is the black inside the bell. Very minor varnish loss. The black spots are from sap bleed, common is cedar. It does fleck off with my thumb nail, it you want to and are patient. Gold paint in the lettering is very strong. No wear on mouth pieces. VG+ - EXC- SOLD (dyl)

Paul Kingyon Duck Calling Tape. AS NEW. $29

Mike McLemore Acrylic Duck Call. I can't get a photo that shows the depth of the silvere flecks in this call. It is polished so well, all I get is reflections. Yours eyes may see a great call, but if you close your eyes and just feel this call, your fingers will tell you a master made it. It feels like quality and precision. The band is real silver. SIGNED ON THE BARREL BY MIKE McLEMORE. Mike didn't make very many acrylic calls. Rare. Mint. SOLD (oel)

P.S. Olt TH-96 Timberhole Duck Call. Mint in package with instructions. $99



Complete Set of all the Colored Olt D-2 Duck and A-50 Goose Calls. That's right, a complete set. These are the only colors Olt issued as special calls in the 1990s. 9 colors in all, including the black set with gold printing. All have the normal Olt info, along with the Tri County chapters info and a goose flying over outline of Illinois. It wold take a long time and more money to assemble a comlete set. Some of the colors are really difficult to find, and none are easy to locate! Keep in mind, these were issued specially for one chapeter's DU banquet, so probably fewer than 300 sets of any one color. There were only ONE HUNDRED (100) sets of the first colors made! That is a tiny number. It also limits the possible number of complete sets to 100. No doubt some of those calls have been lost, used, mutilated, so the number is likey much lower than 100 individual calls so only those remaining can be used to make complete sets. You may never have this oppurtunity again. All are Mint. All or none, I am not going to break them up. The black pair is part of the set and has the Tri County name and goose flying over Illinois just like the other eight sets. Complete Set Price is $2000



F. A. Allen Duck Call. Allen was among the early comercial calls on the market. This one has charm. Someone thought enough of it to carve his initials in the hard maple. I usually take off lanyards, but this little string showed how guys secured their calls before comercial lanyards were around. He probaly put the string through a button hole, rather than around his head. Different times. The metal only has his Allen's name and address on it. I seem to recall others had the date of 1904, so I would presume this is early. It is the BEST sounding Allen I have ever had! I have never heard one sound like a duck before. Exc. except for the initials, which for one of these, adds to the package for me. $69

Glynn Scobey Goose Call. Sold before I could list it.

Glynn Scobey Goose Call. Sold before I could list it.

Glynn Scobey Goose Call. Sold before I could list it.

P S Olt M-9 Crow Call. Much scarcer than the Regular or E-1 crow calls, I once sold one the Jim Olt for his son's collection! Mint. $29



Glynn Scobey Goose Call. Beautiful Scobey Signed goose call, MIB. SOLD (dcl)

Ken Martin Duck Call. Ken continually tried to make different styles of duck calls, but the public liked his "acorn" style and kept taking him back to it. After he moved to Olive Branch, Il Ken decided to make a different design each year begining in 1987. This was the first year, 1987. It must have taken a lot more work to leave the two rings on it. I have always thought it was rather stately. Not many made in this style. Scarce. MIB with papers. SOLD (delz)

P. S. Olt Old Style C-3 Duck Call. Old hard rubber, three piece call. Reed sticks. I may try a new one in it. Olt quit making this three piece version in 1946 according to Bob Christensen's great book (copies available, see above). Exc. $79

Lohman Duck Call. Early call with Kansas City address on insert. A very nice call whose insert matches the barrel. Look closely at the wood grains in both. Quality on the Kansas City calls always seemed better than the later ones to me. Mint. $35



Mike KcLemore. Silver banded acrylic duck call. Typical of Mike's work, the acrylic is beautiful and must be turned in the light, like fine tiger maple, to see all the many color changes and swirls. And if you close your eyes and just feel this call, it tells you a master made it. It feels like quality and precision. Yes, that band is real silver. SIGNED ON THE BARREL BY MIKE McLEMORE. Mike didn't make very many acrylic calls. Rare. Mint. SOLD (ylxz)

P. S. Olt C-3 Perfect Mallard Call. Screw together hard rubber with perfect empressed lettering. Mint. $69

P. S. Olt D-2 Regular Duck Call. Plastic with some lettering weak, most strong. Exc. SOLD (ct)

P. S. Olt 66 Duck Call. Mint. SOLD (yl)

P. S. Olt A-50 Canadian Honker Call. Photo doesn't show it well, but the lettering on this call is GOLD, not white. I don't know if these were offered in this camo pattern before Olt closed up. I do know that any Olt call with Gold lettering is special. This one is Mint. $39.99



Paul Kingyon Duck Call. Cocobola. SIGNED BY PAUL KINGYON. With the fancier end to the insert, I think this is an earlier call, more time consuming to produce. Mint. (I even have the original lanyard if you remind me, I will include it). SOLD (cnl)

Thompson Wildlife Calls. The Million Dollar Duck Call. Not easy to find, especially in this condition. Mint. $55

C. H. Amaden. Hambone call. Banded. The band has done its job of stabilizing the crack shown at the top of the collar. That is the primary reason for bands. Their attractive appearance is second. With this call you get both. Perfect label. Mint as made. Scarce. SOLD (elx)

Yentzen/Sure Shot Double Reed Duck Call. Mint. $49 SOLD (ol)

Rich N Tone Products. Banded Cocabolo Duck Call. Ca early 1990s. Made under a license agreement between Butch Richenback and Buck Gardner. Most of these products were injection molded. However they also mad a cocabolo goose flute call and this banded cocabolo duck call! Unfortunelatey, this agreement didn't last and ended up with Butch suing Buck. (This information came to me from a knowledgeable fellow who took the time to call me and pass the info along. I neglected to ask permission to use his name, so I can't tell you who it was. Thank you sir. Your call was deeply appreciated. It reminded me of the way information was passed around before an of the decoy books came out.) Very few were made. Richenback collectors take note. Mint. $250



Glynn Scobey Goose Call. See description and price below next photo.

Mallartone Duck Call. Mint. $40

Ken Martin Goose Call. This is an early, pre-brand call. Look at the shape of this call. Can you see a 1940s Hollywood movie star? I do, wasp waisted, buxom with well rounded hips. I think these calls are sexy! Mint in box with papers that have no zip codes or area codes on the addresses or phone numbers. Box has a date hand written, presumably by the buyer with the date of purchase, Jan 3, 1964. I think the call is a little older than that date even. The box is in As New condition. It is a plain box, no Ken Martin info at all, which also points to an earlier date than '64. The instructions on the papers show hand drawings of how to use the call, not photos. MIB with papers. SOLD (zexx)

Johnson Standard Crow Call. Until I got these, I had only seen one other Johnson call, a duck call I sold a few years ago. Anyone who wants a really scarce, Mint in box crow call should not hesitate to jump on this one. It could be a long time before you see another one. Hand pasted label on box top states, "Hand made and tuned". I have one left. $59.

Bob Hinman Dove Call. In original mailing box and Mint. SOLD (ox)



Glynn Scobey Goose Call. Early, ca 1970s with two geese. Light handling marks and two paint loss spots on wing. There were very few this early with two geese painted on them. Scarce. Exc. SOLD (enlz)

Glynn Scobey Goose Call. Early, 1970s-80s with two geese painted on it. Tiger maple. Innards replaced. Another scarce early call with two geese. Shows in use wear. Very good+. SOLD (dlx)



P. S. Olt 800 Goose Call. There are not many out there that are this clean. Perfect, Mint. SOLD (yx)

P. S. Olt 66 Duck Call. These are hard to find and darn difficult to find in this condition. The machine cut the label a little off, but perfect as made. Mint. SOLD (yl)

Yentzen Duck Call. This is the older model with the 1/2 inch wide toneboard. Triple reed! Exc. $70

Herters Dove Call. (lying down in photo) SOLD

Glynn Scobey Duck Call. Anyone have one like this? I would like to get another. I would also appreciate your input about this call. 740-698-5060

Glynn Scobey Duck Call. A very early painted Scobey. Imagine trying to fly with wings like that. Glynn kept at it and got better, but that makes these early attempts even more special. 1960s-70s Bill, head, neck and bottom line of body are scribed with paint applied above and inside those lines. Early, small signature. Light handling marks, Exc+ SOLD (elx)

Glynn Scobey Duck Call. Glynn told me that he used these brown nylon inserts about 1967-69. Signed. Light handling marks, Exc+ $175 Sale Pending

Glynn Scobey Goose Call. Early, ca 1970s. Similar to the one above, but with one goose painted on it. A few paint loss spots on wing and back of body near the tail, otherwise only light handling marks. Exc. $225 SOLD (eezl)



L L Bean/George Soule Duck Call. Big Reelfoot style metal reed call made for L L Bean by George Soule, the same man who made cork Coastal decoys for L L Bean. It seems to be a close colpy of a Johnny Marsh call. Brass ring around barrel says, "Soule Coastal Call" twice, once on either side. It is held on with two brass screws and sports a brass ring for attatching a lanyard. I am having trouble nailing down accurate dates these were offered, but late 1960s into the '70s is for sure. Very light wear on insert and a few light marks on barrel. Very hard to find, scarce. Exc+ SOLD (eul)

Kum Duck Call. I have described elsewhere how they closely copied the Olt keyhole toneboard. I have also stated they are much louder than the standard Olt keyhole call. You fellows who are in shouting matches with other hunters for duck's attention might want to try one of these. This one is about perfect as made, Exc+ $50

Another. Shows some use and puppy teeth (?) marks but sounds like a champ. Exc- $45

P S Olt D-2 Duck Call. Wear to white lettering and handling marks, but no damage. This calll has the circular cut out in the tone board. VG $40

P S Olt P-17 Mouth Squirrel Call. So says the lettering. Works fine, but looks like someone dropped it and ran over it with his wheelchair. VG- $21

P S Olt C-3 Perfect Mallard Call. Needs some cleaning to be Mint. It looks like some mud in the impressed letters, will clean up to Near Mint. $75

P S Olt J-15 Junior Duck Call. This is the marblized red version, the one everyone wants. Here is your chance. some wear to the letters and light marks around mouth and top of insert. Do some guys put the call in their teeth to blow them? Still a nice call, Exc- SOLD (yl)





Earl Dennison, "The Duck Call Man" Duck Call. Maple (with a hint of birdseye in it) barrel with lip rest, and cedar stopper. Old Silver label, which predates almost all of the current offerings elsewhere, shinny and bright and perfect. I believe the Silver label dates to the 1960s-70s era. Mint. SOLD (dnl)

P. S. Olt A-50 Flute Goose Call. Camo pattern with Gold lettering. I have several. Mint. $35

P. S. Olt A-50 Flute Goose Call. Old brown and black model. The brown is "end of the day", with pretty swirl in it. Exc. $45

P. S. Olt A-50 Flute Goose Call. Special bright orange made on special order. Mint. SOLD (ztt)

P. S. Olt 77 Goose Call. Walnut. The 77 Olt Goose seems to be hard to find. Mint as made (some lathe marks under the finish). SOLD (yl)

Mallardtone Goose Call. A very nice one in Mint condition. SOLD (cx)

Elam Fisher Type Tongue Pincher Duck Call. Diving ducks that is. Those with the extra barrel band have always been thought to be the higher grade of these call. This one is in exceptional condition without dings, dents or scrathes! Exc+ SOLD (dyt)



Thurman McCann Duck Call. Why didn't I keep more of Thurman's calls for myself when I was buying wholesale from him for resale? He sounded fine when I made my last order. The calls came in a few days and he was gone before my check reached him. Great quality, great sound. This call is Mint. SOLD (dol)

Herters Goose Call. Typical Herters sound. Mint. SOLD (cx)

Ken Martin Duck Call. Idaho Falls, Id in box. No structural problems with the box, just dust and surface wear to top. Call is Exc+. SOLD (ztl)

Lohman Double Reed Duck Call. Yes, double reed! Has a few indents in wood, but looks and works fine. Unusual Lohman Exc- $35



P. S. Olt Timberhole Duck Call TH-96. Mint in Box and darned hard to find. (ztt) SOLD (in two hours)

Greenhead Adjustable Duck Call. Exc. SOLD (ex)

Faulks Goose Call. Has the early "RT 2 Box 333" address, has some real age. interior of plastic needs a goo cleaning. Other than that call is Mint, not a mark on it. SOLD (cl)

P. S. Olt Pintail-Wigeon W-12 Duck Call. Very light handling marks. Looks unused. Exc+ SOLD (cl)

P. S. Olt Fox Coyote Call T-20. Light handling marks on barrel. Exc. SOLD (dl)



Beautiful Laminated Duck Call. Unkown to me. I don't know too many current call makers. This is a really well made call and sounds like a duck. Osage, Maple and Walnut (three of the 4 woods that Thurman McCann used. ?)with many turning rings and flame decoration. Maker should be easy to identify. He knows how to make a quality call. Mint. SOLD (ot)

P. S. Olt Squirrel Call, S-8. Old two tone model, all hard rubber. Somes times it is hard to wake up the squirrel in it, but she is there and responds best to a light touch. Sound familiar? Lettering worn. VG. $29

Kum Duck Duck Call. Much heavier (and step drilled) barrel, than Olt, whom they copied so closely, Olt sued and put them out of business. It is much louder than the Olt D-2 keyhole as is. I don't know why someone couldn't file these to make them even louder. Way cheaper than the Keyhole models (see one below). My memory says 1950s or 60s on these. Exc+ SOLD (ot)

Cutt Down Game Calls. So says the sticker, and yes, it is Cutt. Low, raspy and loud. Lots of volume in this little package. Mint SOLD (el)

Johnny Marsh Signed Duck Call. This is a one owner call, purchased from Johnny himself in 1968.

Sears Duck Call. Someone jammed the cork and toneboard in a little hard and cracked the insert slightly. It would still work, as that part is held tightly by the barrel, if it had a reed. No reed. Externally Perfect, displays nicely. I will let you decide how to grade it. Late 50s, early 60s as I recall. $19

Yentzen Double Reed Duck Call. Comes with tri--folded 7 1/2 by 7 1/2 inch card with info on the call and 5 reasons you should buy it. Mint. SOLD (zyl). I just had one come in that has a partial label. Scroll up to see it.



Chick Major Dixie Mallard Duck Call. Remnants of the black tv screen label still attached. What makes this call special is the ephemera with it: There is an envelope with 1975 postage mark on it. Inside envelop is a 5x7 inch 4 page pamphlet. page 2 shows standard and custome models offered with prices. In addition, there is added information hand written by the same hand that addressed the envelope. $2.00 extra to have a name or duck engraved on band. Also hand written it offered laminated calls and banded rosewood calls. One especially enticing bit, hand written was the offer of a cherry "magnum" call only available at the Stuttgart location. Yes, page one shows three locations, Pine Bluff, Gurdon and Stuttgart. The Cahills were at the first, the Holts at the second and Chick, himself at Stuttgart. Page 3 has a list of titles won by the Major family blowing Dixie Mallard calls. Page 4 lists two records available. I will let the buyer read a few more interesting items for him/herself. All in all pretty unique. But we are not done. There is also a small envelope with two black reeds and two corks, with hand written note saying "reeds & corks" in the same hand writing. I believe it to be Chick's writing. Oh, the call is flame decorated (one ring) hedge with light handling marks, Exc+. SOLD (dnl)

P. S. Olt D-2 Duck Call. World Logo call in World Logo box with partial World Logo banner on insert. Some lettering is faint, Logo is strong. Box is missing lid, but bottom is Exc. I have listed this call twice and twice someone said they would buy it. Twice no payment came, so here it is, third time is a charm. Banner is complet, but worn. Call is Exc. SOLD (zyl)

P. S. Olt D-2 Duck Call. It has the circular cutout in the tome board that guys like. I have shown it because I tried to explain it to a new collector and he got mad implying I was trying to cheat him some way. Call has teeth marks around mouth, otherwise nice. Call it Exc-. $40

P. S. Olt E-1 Crow Call. World logo. Exc. $19

E. Stofer Bean Lake Duck Call. Ca 1940s. I have never had a better one. Mint. SOLD (zyl)

Mallardtone M-295 Duck Call. Mallartones are the best call for loosing keys, reeds, inserts or all three, that I know of. I lost mine as a young fella running down a cripple in a field. I was able to back track and found all three pieces. I talked to an older man yesterday who said he had about 25 of them over the years. Most of which lost one part or another. Mint except for missing key. $19



Glynn Scobey Snow Goose Call. This is NOT the snow goose call we had listed a few pictures down. Look at the painted goose on each to see the differences. No turning rings, and early painting style. This is similar to the oldest one I have in my collection. Mint. SOLD (eel)

Stevenson's Turkey Talker Turkey Call, Number 425. Made in Wellsboro, Pa from about 1947 into the 70s. Scrach box call. There is no zipcode on the instruction sheet in the box, so pre-1960. Later ones have the zipcode on them. Mint in Mint box with papers. SOLD (olz)

Herter's Vit Glodo Duck Call. Number 272. Advertising on bottom of box shows a price of $2 for the Herters Duck and Goose Calling Record, either 78 or 45rpm. That was the price in 1966 and 1976 catalogs I have. There is a small H stamped in barrel below lanyard groove. This is a factory stamp, NOT something a hunter put there. The box end I have shown is the worst part of the box. The other end has light wear and every other surface is As New. Call is Mint. $50



Glynn Scobey Duck Call. Unusual design #1. See below.

Glynn Scobey Duck Call. Unusual design #2. These two calls are not for sale at this time. I am looking for information. Does anyone have any information on either one of these two calls? Or both calls?

P. S. Olt Diving Duck Call, K-11. These calls are unique, clever and they work! Elsewhere I have tolld the story about hunting in my Barneagat sneakbox with nothing in the sky. I knew there were cans in the area, so out of boredom I opened the call to "canvasback" and blew it a couple of times. Within minutes two beautiful drake cans landed on top of my handmade canvasback decoy. (see photo and story on the Decoys page of my website.) The call also accurately makes the sound of bluebills (scaup) and redheads. Three calls in one. Barrel and tip of insert are slightly browned (bakelite does that when exposed to light long enough). Letters on barrel are worn. Rest of insert and lettering on it are As New. Tuff Olt call to find. Exc-. SOLD(znl)

Faulk's Duck Call. Model W-33. Label states "Twice National Champion". Exc+. $25



P. S. Olt Goose Call. Does anyone have an idea what this call is? Is it one of the Magnum calls with Olt label over the name Magnum, after the use of Magnum was found to be infringing on another company's use of that name?

P. S. Olt 66 Wooden Duck Call. Mint. What more is there to say? SOLD (ol)

P. S. Olt DR-115 Double Reed Duck Call. See the tiny chip in the ring above lanyard ring? That is all that keep this call from being Mint, so Exc++. SOLD (lx)

P. S. Olt 77 Wooden Goose Call. These are suprisingly difficult to locate, expecially in this condition. Mint. SOLD (yx)



Matt Pierce Cocabolo Double Reed Duck Call. Matt was a friend and gunning partner of Paul Kingyon, so it stands to reason their calls would be similar in sound. Made of best grade of cocabolo with O-ring construction to work in any weather. A quality call at a very low price. Mint, Brand New. SOLD (ztt)

Paul Kingyon Double Reed Duck Call. Cocabolo. Fresh to the market, I just bought it from the original owner. In Paul's hand writing, in pen, it says: "Made for (man's name)" and Signed by Paul Kingyon. Call is early, made and bought in 1976. Note the nice wide flare on the insert. This is not the normal osage wood, but a step up to cocabolo. A couple of spots in the finish, but all in all Exc. SOLD (cdx)

Holiday Shotshell Box. 12ga. (We have many more collectible shotshell boxes for sale, see them on the Shotshell page (go to my Home Page and scroll down to find the link to the boxes.) These Holiday boxes are the only Shotshell boxes the artist put his signature on. This one has pair pheasants on one side and pair mallards on the other side, also unique among shotshell boxes. Highly collectible because of the beautiful graphics. Ca 1970s. Some youngster has outlined the hen mallard faintly in pen. The pheasant side has light spotting, likely picked up on a field excursion. All in all the box is VG and displays well. Modestly priced due to the mentioned issues. See previous photo for the obverse of this box. SOLD (CX)



Sam "Cox Call" Duck Call. Checkered Cocobola with Sam's brand and flying duck. Quality call all the way. Not many made. Mint (eel) SOLD

Chick Major, Herb Parsons Model. I don't use Rare often, but these are beyond Scarce. Brass banded walnut call has called many ducks according to its original owner. It sounds like it has more ducks in it. Wear on lacquer on band and light handling marks, but remarkablly good for the use it has had. Parsons was a trick shooter and well known for his "palm swell" stocks on his shotguns. The calls he had Chick make for him are "meatier" than Chick's normal Dixie model calls. My guess is Herb had big hands and, like with his "palm swell" gun stocks, he wanted more wood to hold on to. Exc. (ltl) SOLD

P. S. Olt D-2 Duck Call. World Logo call in World Logo box with partial World Logo banner on insert. Some lettering is faint, Logo is strong. Box is missing lid, but bottom is Exc. Call is Exc. $75

P. S. Olt D-2 Duck Call. Barrel and lettering are Mint. Insert has teeth marks on end. A bored hunter? Teething child? Puppy? Good sound. Exc- SOLD (zol)

Glynn Scobey Duck Call. Metal reed. Check out the shoulder on this call, it is an old one. Signed with a pen, also an indication of age. I'd say about 1960s. Mint with hand painted mallard. (dll) SOLD

Glynn Scobey Duck Call. Unusual shape. Glynn told me he made these on special order about 1990. He also told me he only used the brown inserts from 1967-69, so that pretty much confirms the age of this call. It is a wider bore than his later plastic reed calls. I think he called it his 5/8th bore. Mint with hand painted mallard. These unusual shapes add greatly to any assemblage of Glynn's calls, whether you call it a collection or not. (dll) SOLD



Jake Gartner Duck Call. One of a kind: Hand written, by Jake, in gold it says, "Special made for Chas. H. Bradshaw". It then has U.S. Patten Office number 537116 and "World's Champion 1947-48-49". Call and lettering are Mint. SOLD (eox)

P. S. Olt Junior Crow, Model J-16. This is the scarce red marblized barrel. Mint in Mint box with papers. SOLD (yx)

Ken Martin Goose Call. This is Ken's earliest brand, the small letter Lemont, Ill., ca early 1960s. It is very difficult to find Ken's calls this old in this condition. There is one tape mark on one side of the box and very light corner rubbing, otherwise it is as new. Mint in old style box with original papers. (dllz) SOLD

Thompson Wildlife Calls Duck Call. This is the Million dollar duck call! Mint. SOLD (cxz)



Glynn Scobey Painted Wood Duck Call. Yes, I must have lost my mine to list this little gem, but here it is. Briefly, here is the story of painted wood duck calls as I know it from conversations with Glynn. I bugged him for one for years. He finally painted a wood duck he thought "did the bird justice". I have that call and a letter with it saying it was the first he made and painted. This call is NOT that one. Glynn went back to work trying and trying to "do the bird justice" in a style he could reproduce swiftly enough to offer at his normal price. Unfortunately that came too close to the end, and there are simply not many out there. Mint in every way. (I bought it from Glynn, sold it and bought it back.) I am almost sure I have the box for it here somewhere. SOLD (in two days: eyl)

Charles "Charlie" H. Perdew Cedar Duck Call. This call is brand new to the market from a northern Illinois town, having been in one family for generations. Photo shows a chip to the ringed end of insert. There is a matching chip on the opposite side also. Otherwise it is a very nice, old Perdew retaining its original German silver reed, complete original finish, gold paint still strong in letters, bands are tightly pinned. Better sound than most I have heard, I believe it could still call a duck. Exc- SOLD (ltl)

Mallardtone 295 Duck Call. Mint. SOLD (lx)

Mallardtone Duck Call. Mint in very good box, bottom only with original paperwork. SOLD (ox)

Faulk's PL-22 Goose Call. Mint in nr exc box. $30

Duck Commander Woodie. You guessed it, a wood duck call. Mint. SOLD (zcx)

Kum Duck Duck Call. Thick green hard rubber. So close a copy to the Olt D-2 keyhole toneboard, that Olt sued and put them out of business. Seems to me to be every bit as loud, maybe louder than the Olt keyhole D-2. No reason it couldn't be modified the same way to produce a real screamer. Exc. SOLD (lt)

Echo. Double Reed Duck Call. Very loud. Mint $45



Ken Martin Small Letter Lemont, Il. Duck Call. Early 1960s. A good look at the relative size difference between the two brands Ken used. He went to the larger size because the smaller was hard for some folks to read. Not us of course, but others... Has some handling marks ans scratches, mostly to insert. Exc. SOLD (ddl)

Ken Martin Large Letter Lemont, Il. Duck Call. Mid to late 1960s. A good look at the relative size difference between the two brands Ken used. He went to the larger size because the smaller was hard for some folks to read. Mint. SOLD (ddl)

Ken Martin Salmon, Id. Duck Call. 1970s-80s. Perhaps the most difficult of the Ken Martin Duck call stamps to find, as he was at Salmon such a short time. One small spot of finish off at collar, else Mint. SOLD (ddx)

Glynn Scobey Metal Reed Duck Call with hand painted mallard, hand signed by Glynn on reverse. How many of you noticed the uncommon brown insert? Good eyes. Glynn used the brown insert for only a few years, 1967-9. Exc+ SOLD (dcl)

Matched Pair of Art Beauchamp Laminated Duck and Goose set. Finding a matched set of laminated Beauchamps is not easy, especially in this condition. I have said elsewhere, Art and his friend Chick Major Laminated their calls in exactly the same manner, with the thin maple verticle strips. Both have the original cherry red reeds. Both are Mint. SOLD (eyl)

Original Green Head Adjustable Duck Call. Yes, for you younger folks, this is what the original Green Head Adjustable looked like. Patent number stamped on barrel, granted in 1953. This call is fresh from the maker's estate where it has been kept in Mint condition for almost 70 years. Toneboard is aluminum, not plastic, as in the reissues years later. Unusual red and green insert. Mint. SOLD (ztl)

Stubble King Duck Call. Canada's able offering to the market of duck and goose calls. Ca 1973. Mint in box with papers. SOLD (yl)



J. C. Higgins (Sears) Crow Call. Ca late 50s. My very first call was a similar call, long gone. Made by Greenhead for Sears. Looks like it had a plastic band around collar, no longer here, else Exc. (el)

Mangrum Duck Call. This is typical of his unique shape. Mr Mangrum made calls in Michigan in the 1930s (see Harlan). Interesting copper reed design: reed is slipped into a slot and them additional folded pieces of same material inserted to hold the reed tight. Insert is pine, barrel either spruce or pine. This is the best Mangrum call I remember seeing as the soft woods wear easily. Scarce call. Exc+ (eol) SOLD

Mike McLemore Duck Call. Blackwood with brown streaks. Beautiful call made by a craftsman and a gentleman. Mint. SOLD (oex)

Chick Major's Dixie Mallard Call. Only Chick's name is on the label. I think these Gold labels are from the 60s, I am certain they predate the black ones. Label is complete, but has wrinkled. Call is without blemish, Mint. SOLD (eel)

Herb Parsons Duck Call. Thank you all for your input. We agree, this is a Herb Parsons Call, made by Chick Major. It is a later call, being larger than the early ones, but with the same shape and brass band. All that fits the information I got from the daughter of the original owner. Made about 1980, and engraved with the name of the man who bought it originally from Parsons. Once again, thank you to all who took the time to lend their expertise to my request for same. This call is staying with me for a while.

Earl Dennison Limited Edition Specially Made, Hand Signed and Numbered Duck and Goose Call Set. The only thing I can add to the above, which is the original descripton for the set, is that this set is #59 of 250, and so stated on both calls. Both calls are individually hand signed also. Special woods as stated above. Mint in Mint presentation case. SOLD (otl)



Ken Martin Goose Call, Idaho Falls, Idaho. (1970s) Nice clean call, with some very nice walnut. My pic doesn't show of the lights and darks in the wood they way they truly are. Has some handling marks, proving it has had a life over the past few decades. Hopefully it has seen some geese doing the back float in front of the blind a time or two. Retains Ken's knotless lanyard, always a plus. Bright red reed. Exc. SOLD (del)

Art Beachamp Duck Call. Art's calls are so petite they wear very easily, around your neck that is. Small, light and not always in the way, especially on those early season hunts when we are not bundled up. And he had a unique shape, easily recognized in the field or in a collection. (No this is not the same call as the one a few photos down, it is a little cleaner. Thanks for asking.) Very clean, Exc. SOLD (znl)

Thunderstrike Duck Call. Barrel is made of American Chestnut!!! How cool is that? (I have one piece of that grand old tree that the Chinese Chestnut blight all but drove to extiction. It is from an old fence post I found while checking my traps ove 45 years ago.) Insert is black locust, making the call totally unique. Name, date and lightning stike are applied before the final finish is put on, so they will not deteriorate easily. Two piece reed assembly is made of cedar. SIGNED on toneboard and dated. Nice package. Mint. SOLD (el)

Charlie Bishop Checkered Call. Signed with his stamped in initials just above lanyard grove. Quality checkering job. Made with his tried and true trutone insert. Very few of Charlie's calls were checkered, making this one a choice item. Mint. $175

P. S. Olt D-2 Duck Call. Round hole BUT with the circular cut out along tone channel. I have been told these can be modified the same as the Keyhole tone board. They don't come much better, this one with bright white lettering and only light handling marks. Exc+. $65

Broadbill Call. About as good as I have seen in a long while. I doubt these were mint when they left Mr Hanson's kitchen table. Very light denture marks on tone board and slight wear to gray paint on the hardware. Exc+ SOLD (zyx)



Remington Shur Shot. FULL. 16ga. 2 9/16 inch shells. One of the known 88 varieties of this red and green box used by Remenington for years. Colors are strong, corners lightly rubbed.

Art Beachamp Duck Call. The original Beachamp call with the bright red reed and pre-zip code address. Ca 1955. Art was an excellent caller and was a Champion and Champion of Champions. He learned his call making from Chick Major who was a close friend. Some wear to the label, but very few of these lables survived. Call is Exc. SOLD (zux)

Winchester Ranger With Setter on point. 2 5/8 inch shells. FULL, sort of, read on. Is he pointing a grouse or woodcock? We will have to move in and flush it to find out... I love this box. (My first purchase of it was for 27 full boxes. What a thrill. But I digress.) It has all 25 shells, but they have been fired. One of them has a hand written note that says "first rabbit". Pretty cool. Great colors, little wear, EXC. SOLD (nt) I have many more shotshell boxes listed. Go to my Home Page link at the bottom of every page, and click on the Shotgun Shell Boxes link to go them.



Above photo, left to right:

Wood Duck and Squirrel Call. Yes, this little call is a serious working call. Included instructions tell you how to use it to call woodies and squirrels. Made by Breland Edwards, he has even put a little "duck band" on the lanyard. The band says "Lil Lake" and "Made in USA". Brand New, Mint. $20

Unknown mystery call. I have had this call over 25 years. No one has been able to identify it. I presume it was going to be an Arkansas style call. However, it was never finished. The insert (plug) is just that, a plug. It was never drilled, cut, worked in any way. It is just a solid piece of wood. Why the call had final finish applied has always been a mystery to me. Anyhow it is the kind of thing that makes collecting so intriging. One of a kind! Never used, etc... Mint. $60

Rich N Tone Products Duck Call. I have a better photo of this call with full info higher up on this page. At this writing it is about the 5th photo after the books, but as I add items it may slip down farther.

Jim Blakemore hat pin or lapel pin call. No is does not blow, but you will be the only guy in your group with one. They are very scarce. It is the same shape as his full size calls, but, as you can see, is much smaller. Cute even. This one has 83 in the little white circle. That is the year it was made. I bought a card full from him back then. They sold out quickly. This is the one I kept for myself. Mint, unusual, and scarce SOLD(ol)

Johnson Duck Call. This is a really great call, made by a father and son team here in Ohio. (see Fleming) Dad does the wood work and son makes the sounds. Both are very good at what they do. I have my choice of many calls, but my go to call is one they made for me about 10 years ago. Banded Osage orange. The name Johnson is engraved in the brass band. Mint $85

Unknown Duck Call. A really nicely made raised panel duck call. Has four raised shield shaped panels, four spires from below. Walnut has nice deep rich tone and some figure. Good workmanship. Banded. One scratch on one panel are all that keep it from being mint. SOLD (ul)

Trutone Crow. Name clearly stamped in barrel. Mint, but missing reed. I may have something that will work if you want to use it. SOLD (cl)

Schrade Classic Uncle Henry Knife. (I have so much miscelaneous stuff around I am thinking of make an new category on my home page. I just don't know what to call it besides Misc. Thinking of "Buttons, Badges, Knives, and More..." Give me your thoughts, PLEASE!) Anyhow, back to the Schrade. It is a bone handle, 2 3/4" Classic. Comes in velvet lined thick folding box with instructions, warranty, even a little case for the knife itself. Three blades, the third being scissors. Clip on back of knife says Uncle Henry, as do the blades. Brass shield in bone says Schrade with decoration around the name. I even have the original cardboard sleeve it was packaged in originally. Mint. $29 erial was discontinued. Many makers used it and found it to be the best stuff available. It caused them to scramble to find something else that would work. Many have talked about how nothing else seemed to give them the same sound.) Call is Mint. SOLD (eyl)



Above photo, left to right:

Johnny Marsh Metal Reed Duck Call. This is one of the earlier calls not signed. Howard Harlan, p.179, states Johnny Marsh made "one of the finest metal reed calls ever produced". Not much I can add. Walnut barrel with blackwood insert. This call dates between 1958-1962 as those are the years the seller states his father bought them from Marsh. The son is my age, so well old enough to remember those years distincly. I do. Light handling and use marks, with small indent at collar from lanyard. The call still rings. Exc. SOLD (ltl)

Sure Shot Goose Call. Nice two tone piece of walnut. Mint in vg box. SOLD (el)

Charles Perdew Crow Call. This is a very desirable small crow call, The barrel measuring only 3 1/2 inches, overall length 4 1/4 inches. There is one blemish on the back side where the call took a heavy blow from something harder thean the cedar. There is a gash and inch tall and 3/8 inch wide and the blow caused the barrel to crack. Everything is still working, the call sounds good yet, good enough to get the intended job done. It looks like it was a favorite of someone, the stamping is worn so much as to be hard to read. I do like a call with history, and this one has one. I can imagine some old hunter carressing it by rotating it in his hand while waiting for the crows to show up and then his sweaty hand shining the call as he coaxed them the last few yards...bang! How many hundreds of times? Oh well, back to reality. Small sizes are difficult to find and highly sought. Very Good. $250

Glynn Scobey Goose Call. Take a good look at this goose call. There were only 25 made. Period. 25. Glynn made these for me to celebrate my 25th year of living independly poor, the 25th Anniversary of Dale's Decoy Den. Each call went out with a copy of a letter written by Glynn to the effect that he designed this shape just for the event and he would never make it again unless I requested more. I never did. Letter still in this box, call, and box are Mint. Very scarce. The call SOLD before I could get the picture taken and put it on line.



Who says an Olt collection has to be boring and black? All of these seemed to have been made in numbers less than 200 each, some much less. To keep it simple, all are Mint. D2 duck calls are all sold; A50 Flute goose calls, $95 each. I still have a few colors left. mail me for availability





I have 19 Clem Blackburn reeds and corks. I was fortunate enough to meet Mr Blackburn on several occasions and he was nice enough to sell me his fabulous calls wholesale so I could carry them in Dale's Decoy Den as inventory. All the calls are long since sold, but I do have these spare reeds and corks he graciously provided to me. 13 of the reeds are signed "CB", 6 are not. You can barely make out the CB in the reed at bottom by itself. I have tried to enhance it, but everything I do makes it worse. He scribed these initials on with a writing needle or something similar. They show in the reed better than in the photo. All have been trimmed and ready to use, Mint of course. Signed ones are $15 each, unsigned $12 each. If you own a Blackburn call jump on this now, you will need an extra reed sooner or later. Unique offering!




All Scobey calls sold.

The Winchester .410 shotshell crate is unique in that is has retained its original top board! That is seldom the case. Exc conditon, Sold




John Shoemaker Semi-circular 4 Tier Call Stand. This is a great stand, holds 33 calls, and is designed to stand on its own or be hung on a wall. As shown, it is mounted on wall. I have shown it with only a few calls so you can see the stand itself. Pegs are spaced so calls in front don't hide ones behind. Also, the rises are enough so lower ones don't get in the way of those above. I love mine. I can get you one just like it. Specify if you want light or dark stain on yours. Hand made by John and signed by him. Mint. $75



John Shoemaker Call Stand. MADE OF OAK WITH LIGHT STAIN TO REALLY SHOW OFF YOUR CALLS. MADE IN Three Tiers, EACH STAND is MADE STEEP ENOUGH SO THE BACK ROW is NOT HIDDEN BY CALLS IN FRONT. May be mounted on a wall or stands on a shelf,table, or wherever you disire. Holds 29 calls. Mint. $60



Herter's World Famous No. 39 Rabbit Flusher. Only Mr. Herter, the extraordinary marketer, could dream this one up! I have no idea if they worked, but it sure makes collecting calls a little more fun. Call is the size of his crow or predator calls in full sized box. The box is a work of art with bright red lettering and a red rabbit on top and both ends. Bottom of the two piece cardboard box has an advertisement for Herter's "VARI-CHOKE or VARI-CHOKE WITH RECOIL ELIMINATOR". The warning, "DO NOT USE THIS FLUSHER BEFORE CAREFULLY READING THE ENCLOSED INSTRUCTIONS" is precious. Unfortunately a previous owner must have found another use them (the outhouse?) as they are missing. Call is MINT and the box is EXC+. Scarce offering, especially in this condition. $55



P. S. Olt Goose. Model A-50. Canadian Honker Call. Would an Olt by any other color sound as sweet? It does!

Also is an outline of the state of Illinois with a canada goose flying in front of it. This call is also marked #19. Call is mint.Same Olt sound, unusual Olt collectible. (The bufflehead is an actual gunning, hollow cedar, decoy made by me. See under Hunting Decoys on this website.) Call is sold. OTHER COLORS AVAILABLE, SEE ELSEWHERE ON THIS PAGE.



Sure Shot Predator. Model 1350. Looks black to these dim old eyes. Call is mint, label has some wrinkling on the right edge, outside the lettering. No zip code in address. $15



We carried a complete line of Glynn Scobey calls while he was alive. Since Glynn's passing all his calls have been sold, except for my personal collection of about 100. I am not interested in piece mealing them out. Serious buyers can contact me about buying them all. These are not average calls, but older ones, unusual ones, special calls made for Dale's Decoy Den, etc. Example: I have the first 5 calls he painted hen mallards on, and a letter to prove it. That kind of calls. I have the first call he painted a wood duck on and letter to back it.
