Laminated calls are a beautiful art form, that requires the ability of a master craftsman to showcase several different types of wood into one call. Ron has been making some amazing laminated calls the past several years that are highly sought after by collectors. Ron's laminated calls are exquisitely crafted to show how several unique woods can come together into one beautiful design when finished. Job well done Ron and congratulations on being the September call of the month!

In the next CCAA newsletter, you will be able to read about the journey Gary has been on. Let's all pitch in and help Gary on his quest. If you would like to contribute to the efforts, Gary has a GoFundMe campaign launched here:
