New Marlin call
« on: June 24, 2019, 09:06:51 PM »
I'm looking to get on Marlins list for a box call and just had a few questions.
Is email a good way to get a hold of him?
Does he use exotic woods or more of a traditionalist that use mostly domestic woods?
If he's not big into emails what is his phone #?
Thanks

uhh, I hope I don't have to join face book just to have access to certain turkey calls. I appreciate the replies and probably should have stated that I'm not set up for face book. That's why i'm asking if he responds to e-mail. Thanks again anyways.

Most all your call makers are on facebook ... you don't know what your messing not seeing these call builders on facebook , they post pictures and sound files of lot of calls ...  during the off season some of them run little specials on boxes and pot calls ....

I agree I haven’t been on Facebook that long and this was one of the main reasons I joined and have enjoyed it ever since.

Someone should be able to get you a phone number or something as I know he sends sound file via text.  There should be a way to contact outside FaceBook.

Yep I heard the same from a friend that he is not taking new orders now. 

Glad you got a hold of him though!

Do you know if he sets up under his own name at events or does he have a business name as well he may set up under?

While your waiting to get on Marlins list I would also recommend getting on TJ Johnson’s list as well, he is making some awesome calls and has mentored under Marlin.
