I believe Tim Bullock of No Bull Custom Calls makes or can make a cedar one.

  He told me he wasn't taking special orders at the moment on his push pins he was doing all he could do in just building calls in general.

Winky Hicks does in fact make a Cedar Push pin. The top 2 from my collection below are made of Cedar. One is an early call made by Lynch, the Wild Turkey Model. The other Cedar push pin is made by Mountain Hollow Game Calls. Both sound real good. Cedar is softer wood, more of a Hollow sound. The 3rd call (bottom) is made from Teak wood. This was from Dick Kirby’s collection.  Teak is very similar to cedar, in fact the sound is basically the same. These are lighter, less dense woods. As you know, Shannon’s calls sound so real because he uses all denser, very hard exotic woods (Snakewood, Macassar, Gaboon Ebony, Blackwood to name a few). Shannon also has a very unique sounding board that gives his calls that “Real Hen” sound. The lighter woods do have a different sound, which as we all know may get that Tom to sound off when other calls won’t. I will switch up using different wood combo push pins if I hunt the same bird on successive days, hopefully preventing him from patterning me using the same calls. I will always have at least one of “Old Gobblers” with me no matter what……

Be well, be safe…

Winky Hicks has the cedar push pin down pat. Even has a little slate on top for some real soft stuff.

I've got a Winky Hicks push pin, it sounds good and I've quite a few turkeys with it.
