THIS IS US
Our little call making business is family ran by dad Eddie Wheat, mom Missie Wheat, son James Wheat & daughter, Cheyenne (Pickle) Wheat.
I guess you can say the game call idea was planted years ago by Pop, Eddie Wheat's dad. In the early 1970's Pop would find pieces of slate from an old abandoned fort in Shell Beach, Louisiana, cut them into squares, plane them to a certain thickness, add a hand carved striker & voila', he was talking turkey. Along with his Belgium Browning he was a force to be reckoned with. Although our sound and construction have come a long way, we sometimes take that call into the fields and give it a yelp or two.
Our heritage also plays a role in our company. Descended from the early Isleño settlers, we come from a long line of trappers, decoy carvers, pirogue builders and early duck call makers. Our family has always made many of our own hunting products but we never considered selling anything. Then one day someone walked into our tiny little wood shop and bought a duck call. We decided to do a local show at the Los Isleños Museum and the response was overwhelming.
It's an honor that we are getting to share our family's passion & heritage with others.
