Box calls have been with us for many years, they are simply a wooden box with a hinged lid that can be slid across the top to produce sounds via friction. Box calls are used to produce: Clucks - short quick bursts of sound, made by sliding the top quickly. Yelps - a slow methodic, repetitive call produced by repeatedly sliding the cover in a sequence. Purrs - gentle soft call made by slowly sliding the top.
Box calls are made on an individual basis and each produces a unique sound, depending on wood material and wall thickness. Chalk is usually placed on the underside of the top to increase the friction between it and the base and to increase volume.
Due to the fact that most box calls are made of wood, box calls are very susceptible to inclement weather and rapidly absorb moisture, at best changing the sound of the call of worse making the call inoperative.
