  • Bird calls!

    Move around and clean up, ran into these two items.
    Both belonged to my dad.
    The P.S. Olt is pretty self explanatory.

    The little silver call is aluminum and has neither brand name nor model.
    I know what it's purpose was "supposed" to be.
    Is anybody familiar with it or know anything about it?

    Kind of a "Wha'zit?" question.

    I think that is a high pitch squeaker like those given out by the Audubon society. Intended to get the bird to answer back.

      Some kind of old turkey call? I'm picturing something you'd shake to produce a gobbling sound to challenge a tom -- a pre-cursor to the modern-day Primos gobbler shaker?

        Well guys, I was with pop when he bought it. Paid a whopping 25 cents for it. It was marketed as a "quail call".
        You don't blow into it. You suck air through it.
        It "does" make a quite acceptable "bob white!" sound, but I've called alot more quail in simply free style whistling. LOL!

          It's a quail call. You blow it early morning to help locate or after a covey bust to track singles. I got a couple round here somewhere. They work nice the times you're dogless.

            Hmmm!? No offense dewman, but I can just whistle and locate more birds than with the call.
            No brag.
            Just fact.
            You have to suck the air through this one.
