No, no, no...Not Pete.

However this wood did come from Pete's property in Jersey 3 or 4 years ago. I finally got around to dying it and stabilizing it Pete! Turned out pretty good I think!

Nice looking call! Looks like spalted wood - spalted maple?

Steve,

That is a VERY handsome example of your craft.

Looks like all our hard work to harvest, treat and load those burls was worth it!

Good job buddy!

Pete

Thanks Craig and Bronco...Yes, that is dyed and stabilized spalted maple burl.

And Thanks again Pete...you bet the trip was well worth the effort. All of that wood is good and dry now just waiting be made into calls. Patience has prevailed.

Beautiful !! When I first saw that I thought it was Pete's perfume bottle. After thinking about that I DO believe there would be a high-end market for exactly that............if you could get a glass or plastic liner inside it.

I have been around Pete and absolutely wears no perfume, maybe some long call lure though!


I love the smell of burning spruce---I love the sound of a spring time goose---I love the feel of 40 below---from my trapline I will never go!

Of course...That's why I set it up that way Pete. I knew the other guys wouldn't disappoint with some punchlines... smile
