Introduction to Box Calls

Turkey box calls have been around for almost 125 years, they are one of the easier turkey calls to learn how to use. Will Primos began making turkey calls in 1976, not much more than a decade later, Primos hunting was born. With hundreds of calls and a passion for speaking the language, we put science and passion together in our box calls to give you the best tool possible for harvesting an Ol' Tom this spring. 

We offer 50+ turkey calls, out of those fifty calls 14 of them are premium well engineered box calls. We have spent countless hours behind a router and in the woods fine tuning these turkey calling instruments. 



1. Tall Timber Gabriel Wood Turkey Call

The Tall Timber Gabriel was effectively named after a book written by Charles Whittington. The book gives insight to the heavenly songs a old gobbler sings from a branch in the spring. Likewise, this box call will sing back to him. The way that this call is cut in the cnc mill shop gives you the ability to yelp, cut, and cackle in different tones and pitches.


2. Waterboard Turkey Call

Spring time means rain showers. Don't let the weather keep you from getting that long beard to gobble at you. The Waterboard Box Call is weather proof, it will yelp, cluck, and cut in any condition wet or dry. Having an all purpose box call can be very valuable to keep in your turkey vest. You never know when a spring shower may pop, be ready for it and stay on your bird.


3. Clear Cutter Turkey Call

The Clear Cutter Box Call produces sharp clear cuts and clucks that a gobbler can hear from hundreds of yards away. There is little paddle resistence making it easy to get start of loud and sharp and roll your yelps down to a soft raspy closing note. The box is pre-tuned and ready to hunt, all you have to do is pull the paddle.


I’m Will Primos, we're going to talk about Box Calls. Got its name because it's kind of box of wood, got a lid on top, two parts of it are the box and the lid some boxes are actually glued together. Primos makes there's in one piece, it’s one block of wood that is routed out to precision measurements to give you an instrument so that when you drag this lid across the sideboard it'll make sound. Now our calls, this is a single sided box it's two sides. One side will sound one way and the other side will sound another way and you can rattle it or shake it to do a gobble, I’ll talk more about that. The call was invented and patented in 1897 by a man named Gibson. I have one of the only mint condition box calls that I'm aware of and it was given to me by a school teacher in Jackson Mississippi as a gift. It was her father's and he died in, I believe it was 1911, and she left to call it to him the beautiful old call but it's where it all got started making box calls for all those turkey hunters. So you just going to need to pick the box call that you want, this is called a Double Box Cutter Box Call it's got a thumb groove here and here on it so that you can put your thumb against the call so make clucks, a little bit of pressure test turned upside down(turkey sound). And then you've got another one, this is called Hook Up Magnetic Turkey Call this particular call has a magnet as a hinge rather than a screw so decide which box call you want, decide which one you think is going to work for you double sided or single sided cutter style which as thumb grooves in it which is one of my favorites.And then you'll be ready to try to learn that it's an instrument and how to take that instrument to play the music of the turkey language.
