Default An INJUSTICE

Talking about custom box calls got me to thinking about a couple boxes I've had sitting on the shelf for 6 years now.. A couple boxes hand made just for myself and one for my daughter as friendly gifts from a very special man. These boxes have never had the pleasure of that first thunderous gobble in the early morning dawn. They've never taken that stroll down through the creek bottom attempting to strike up a conversation with a mid morning Tom. These boxes have been imprisoned in a concrete and drywall tomb to sit quietly on a shelf, deprived of their true purpose. The shame is all mine and I aim to rectify this injustice this coming weekend.
I'll only take the box with my name on it, the other will have to wait for that special lady to make it talk.

Mine is a Purple Heart lid on a Mahogany box

Hers is a Poplar lid and Red Oak box

CAL makes a good box. IMO, you don't need to spend any money as those will serve the purpose as well as any.
