Here is what customers say about their Magnolia Game Call
Mr Gary, I got the turkey call in the mail Saturday and have had a chance to play with it a good bit. It is everything I was hoping for. Looks real nice, handles well and sounds really Great. I tried some different strikers with the call and each with a little different sound. They worked good and sounded fine. I'll probably stick with the striker you supplied with the call, as it really sounded good! Thanks for the help in getting this call to me so quickly. I really appreciate it.
I am 81 years one years old and your slate call is the best slate I have ever played.
Just so you know your calls are the first I've ever bought that weren't production calls at Walmart or whatever. I got tired of inconsistent sounds. I Love Yours.
Gary, I could not be happier with calls! Not only do they look nice, they are easy to use and have a nice tone. It sounded like three hens were in our house on Christmas Eve when my son, grandson and son in law tried them out. They were all surprised and very happy. I am also pleased with my custom made glass call. It is so nice that I may display it in my den rather than rough up the face.
This Glass call I got from you 10 yrs ago is wiping out the North Mississippi turkeys! Don't tell anybody. They might outlaw it!
Just wanted to Thank You for the amazing turkey call. This will be a special call because mine and my sisters name is on it. I was blown away by the sound. Happy Hunting.
Why I bought your call!!!..........This tom fell for the aluminum Ambrosia Maple call. I had been fooling with this turkey on and off since opening day. He was the "bull of the woods" on this particular tract. It earned a spot in my vest. You make great calls and I expect to have a few more in time. Thank you so much for your dedication to our sport.
Thanks for building me an absolutely beautiful call!! It sounds even better than it looks. I could not be happier with the call. Also, thanks for personalizing it for me. I'm sentimental about my stuff that people make or give to me. I will use it with pride and pass it down when I'm to old to chase these amazing birds we chase each spring. Thanks again!!
I just want to say that I have 2 of your slates. 1 is a slate over glass in an oak pot that I bought from you at our wild game supper a few years ago and the other is an aluminum over glass in a oak pot that you did for the U.S. Forest Service. I have several kills with the 1st one and already called up 4 with the other just this year. I love the aluminum. No prep and works awesome with water dripping on it.
I got the calls in a couple days ago and gave them to my buddies yesterday. They were blown away!!! Awesome job! they look and sound great!
Had a kinda of short season this year. It started today in Wisconsin. I had this nice bird on the ground at 6:30 am. Used the new slate call you made for me to finish the deal. Its has been cold up here with little or no gobbling. Thanks again for a great call.
Just to let you know I really liked the call and didnt want to send it to the next hunter.Thank you for sponsoring the call. It is a great call and has produced new friends and memories.
Great Call!!!!! Love the pitch. Plays loud and soft. Thanks!!!
Love the call!! The slate is the ticket for close in calling and the aluminum can make a dead bird gobble. This call has made KY toms gobble nonstop. I will hate to ship it to the next hunter as I have loved using it.
This was a wonderful call to use. Bagged two with it, and had 3 more that it dragged in to just about it range.
Just got my call in the mail and I wanted to tell you , I love it. It looks and sounds great!!!! I'm sure I will be getting a slate from you in the future.
"They look Great! They are equal in quality to any I've used. I especially like the sound of the slate with the Birch striker. You make a great product. I am taking pictures and sending to a couple of my buddies. I can't wait to hit the woods with them. Thanks!!! "
"After two days of hunting henned up toms. I finally called this nice 3 yr old in for a client. I used your Ambrosia Maple Glass call for the rest of the season, taking 3 more gobblers. The outfitter I worked for has used another call makers calls for 17yrs and can't wait to get one of these that I have ordered. Keep up the good work."
"Gary WOW!!! What a special call......This call is a TOOL & DIE call. This is a fine turkey calling TOOL and turkeys are gonna DIE. Excellent in every aspect. The looks, the craftsmanship, design, and oh, the turkey music it makes. A 10 of 10. I have quiet a number of pot calls and this one is a very special call. I'm sure to GIT -R-Dunn this fall season with it in PA and Ohio. Thank You for such a Great Product!"
"These are some of the prettiest laminates that I have seen and great sounding too, you do some really sharp work, Gary"
"I have been long time diaphragm user in the turkey woods, as well as on the competition stage. I have purchased many of friction call but have found none to my liking (call me picky if you like). I have called in 5 toms into gun range for my hunting buddies with your call. The sounds it produces have not only brought on turkey attention, but also in a hurry. Thank you for your time and your glass call."
"I got your calls a week ago. Wow!! They are great sounding. I think the glass is my favorite, and I am a slate man myself. I honestly think it's the best glass call that I have ever played. I like it better than 95% of the ones that I make.....I think I will have to go back to the drawing board on my glass calls. The slate is a great one too, as good as any that I have played."
"I got the calls in the mail. Man, I have to say they are some of the best I have seen and they will see some time in the woods for sure. The Aluminum is the best Aluminum I have ever heard period.......They should all sound this good. Most I have heard was real scratchy and hard to run, but yours is easy and has great sound to it. The rounded bottom fits my hand perfect. The slightly rounded feels good too. The slate is perfect for tree calls and purrs. I WILL be using them in contests from now on. When I show them to my buddy who also calls in contests you may get some business. He purchased a crystal from another callmaker for $70 this past year. The glass you sent me is just as good or better sounding than it was."
High quality, Great Sounding calls, Thanks again.
I ordered a the double sided aluminum/slate from you last week. I really like the call alot. I havent called one in with it yet, but I'm sure its just because I havent gotten on one. Man does it sound good! Better than I expected. Thanks again for the great call, and I will let you know when I get one with it.
Best Sounding Call, I've bought in 4 years
Very Pleased, Nice quality of call, Thanks
Great Pocket size call - Sounds Great!!!
I got the call today played with it and I will take this to the woods.
I must say it is a sweet sounding and great looking call! Your work is Awesome and I am glad I got to see it up close!
Hi Gary, What a surprise came in the mail today. This is a magnificent call, a top quality glue up, the turning, the laser work, and the finish. You have really come a long way. It's so beautiful I hate to scratch the glass! It's one of the prettiest calls I've ever seen.
Dear Gary, Your package came in the mail yesterday and I want you to know that I have never been more pleased with this call and the three strikers. You really do a fine job - the hand turned strikers are really fine and all the strikers work great on the slate. The corn cob striker is incredible on this slate making it perhaps the best slate and peg that I have ever owned or used and I have about 12 calls of this type. I use a wing bone, box call, and mouth calls a lot. But if I could only have one call and never use another it would be a slate. Gary - I do believe that with the strikers this is best slate call that I have ever used. I have three slates that I have killed a lot of birds with over the years. I have been at this since I was 22 yrs old and I will 80 next Oct. I get my calls out a few nights each month to keep the edge sharp. I know what a really good call should sound like and yours is perfect. It yelps high and low - makes cutts real good. In short it is better than the three calls I thought were my best and I have killed alot of birds (over the years) with them. So Gary - there you have it. Thanks for the call of all calls. Warmest Regards P.W. Phillips author of The Grand Obsession
I got the calls the other day. Awesome. This is the best sounding slate that I have ever heard, and it is good looking to match.
Got my calls in this morning, beautiful work, and they sound great.
Just received the calls this morning, They look and sound great as usual.
Thanks again for a great looking and sounding call!
The Call is Awesome! Thanks
Hi Gary, Just wanted to let you know that I have been out and about putting your call to good use. I Love this thing. I own alot of fine Pot calls and I can honestly say I like this one the best. This year I decided to travel light. So I went through all my Pot calls. Out of some 50 that I own. I picked out Your Slate call and another call makers glass. I NEVER USED the glass call. I like the Slate better. Gobblers Love it too. I will say one thing. I like the other call makers striker better.I use yours for really cranking it up. But strikers are something different than the call itself. I own several other call makers calls but that Little Maple Slate of yours in my opinion is my Favorite. It is the perfect balance of Rasp, Pitch, and Volume. It screams when you want it too, but it is something else for sweet talking too. It is not honky, or to thin sounding. I brought along a couple of my box calls too, and as it turned out I killed a 26lb gobbler yesterday. Using one of my box calls, but I have worked plenty of birds with that little Slate of yours. I will be hunting in NY state in May and your Slate will be with me. I will try and send some NY customers your way. Thanks again, Jerry Zebro, Foggy Hollow Custom Calls
I recently purchased a custom slate call from you. I want you to know that it has quickly come my favorite. My first yelps on it were answered by a thunder of a Louisiana gobbler. Whether it was the call or not it instantly became good luck. That call put an end to that bird as well as a triple bearded public land bird in Louisiana. I have already told several of my buddies how good the call sounds and looks.
I just wanted to Thank You again for the slate call I got from you! I now have over 40" of beard (one triple beard) from my first two turkeys that I harvested using your call. It is definitely my go to call and am so glad you took the time to help me with the call. Not bad for someone who has never hardly ever touched a slate before!
I contacted you last year because I did a Mobile Calls thing with the Primos Chat Forum and sent you some pictures. Well this year I received another one of your calls and was able to take two longbeards with it in the short time that I had it. My father and I both harvested birds with it on a gorgeous afternoon and I was able to get some good pictures. Thank you so much for the wonderful call, you truly have a gift and I cant express how much I have enjoyed using your calls these last two years.
