I don't know how to contact him. I was preparing to buy a couple calls when he announced that he was not going to make any more. I heard he made a killer slate.

That’s really depressing was looking to see if he could’ve done a custom glass call for me and my wife I bought my call from in in spring 2017 just before he closed up then that sucks... does anyone know where I can get a custom call like what I want?

Paul Hicks aka Daddy Rat, he just made me a walnut glass over glass with a custom sound board. Also the Walnut glass sounds awesome!

I second Paul Hicks he is a great guy who makes a really great call at a really good price. He goes by Daddy Rat on here send him a PM.

I’m pretty sure he produced an instructional tape I bought as a kid in the late 1980s at the West Virginia Hunting and Fishing Show in Charleston.  It’s how I learned to run a mouth call.  I wish I could find a copy!

Check with Jimmy Schaffer, Oak Ridge Custom Calls. He makes a great call and he is a super guy to talk to.  He has made a couple of calls for me. Here is one of them.
