It has been hard to find Hampton lately. While chores are awaiting, he is nowhere to be found. I have had to search for him high and low. Finally, I find him in the shop working on his latest woodworking project. He is making turkey friction calls and strikers from wood harvested on our property.
Hampton put his friction call design to use this past weekend and actually called up a turkey. However, the silent old tom spotted Hampton’s pale white face against the backdrop of southern longleaf pines before he could pull up his facemask! Another day of getting outsmarted by those crafty turkeys.
