My name is Jimmy Schaffer. I am a custom cabinetmaker by
trade and an avid hunter. I have been fortunate to have lived
in the country all of my life, where hunting is a way of life.
My first attempt to build a turkey call was about 15 years ago. I'll admit it
wasn't too pretty. Since then I have researched, tweaked, and
experimented with different woods, techniques and styles. When I finally
got one to "talk turkey" I took it into the woods with me and tried it out. I
took a nice long beard that day, and I was hooked. I haven't touched a
store bought call since. I have killed many turkeys, in many states, year
after year using my custom calls. I gave calls to my friends and they
have had great success too!
So here we are. My goal is to make the most realistic sounding call
available. And I feel that I have accomplished that. I personally build every
call one at a time, using only the finest woods and materials available. If a
finished call doesn't "talk turkey", you can be assured it won't leave the
shop. If I won't use it, you shouldn't either. Judges seem to agree. I am
proud to have taken several awards in The National Wild Turkey Federation
(NWTF) Callmaking competitions.
I have donated custom calls to organizations such as; Ducks Unlimited,
NWTF Banquets, United Bow Hunters of Pennsylvania, as well as local church
and school functions.
If you are not 100% happy with one of my calls, send it back. I will replace
it, or refund your money.
Thank you for considering my calls. Please call me if you have any questions,
or just want to talk turkey.
