Jim Matthews Signature Calls are one-of-a-kind custom quail calls with the best sound of any call available. They are made from figured pieces of walnut and other gunstock woods along with pieces of wood collected locally from our mountains and deserts. Matthews takes a great deal of time selecting and cutting the wood so the calls are eye-pleasing, and he hand sands them and rubs in an oil finish to bring out the grain and color. The valley and Gambel's quail calls are simple rubber band calls, making the "reed" easy to replace. The mountain quail and bobwhite quail calls are whistles that match those birds' calls perfectly. Most are made to order, but he usually has a calls on hand and available for immediate shipment, and there are two lines of semi-production calls.
