This call is a best seller and one of my personal favorite combinations. This checkered short box has a purple heart lid paired with a cedar box. This call can do it all, from loud locating to close range purrs. The cedar box is makes it easy to use with a lot of great rasp.

    The call sounds great, and very easy to make runs. Can’t wait to use it this year during turkey season in Alabama. Thanks.

    Purple Heart and cedar box call

    Published by Andre Lobo on Dec 24th 2023

    First off customer service was top notch. My mom bought this for me as a Christmas present, and there was some kind of problem with her PO Box. Don’t know the whole story, I just know David Halloran worked with her to make things right. I appreciate that very much, thank you!! As for the call, this is the nicest best sounding call I have now. Better than the Zink, wood haven, bone collector, and of course the $10 Primos one I bought to start with. The quality of materials, craftsmanship, customer service, and sound are all the best of the best. Thank you again

    Another work of art ... already had the purple heart and sapele box call... the purple heart and cedar appears to offer a slightly softer range ... but I have not used it in the woods yet. But I am sure it will sound as beautiful it looks..

    Two more box calls and I think I will have purchased the Halloran website's entire box call collection.

    Shouldn't have waited so long

    Published by Scott on Jun 30th 2023

    I had been eyeing David's boxes for nearly seven years and finally pulled the trigger on a cedar/purpleheart short paddle. First let me tell you, if you're looking for a barky-raspy call with phenomenal rollover, this is the one. I love that it's so clear and loud, yet has so much rasp and bark on the back end. The cuts on it are so distinct and aggressive, makes my other box call sound like I'm smacking two pieces of wood together. I can already tell this one is going to drive them nuts. The clucks and purrs are incredibly soft given how lound the call is on the yelps and cuts. I imagine you could bring them in on this call alone. If you're on the fence about one of these calls just pull the trigger, you'll be glad you did!

    This is the best sounding, feeling, and looking call I’ve ever used. The action is also the best. So much control and versatility.

    I really like the sound of this call. I was on my back deck the other evening practicing with it when a Gobbler start answering me in the distance and came right on in to the call. Definetly going to be in the vest on opening day. The craftsmanship is beautiful and second to none as always. I find it really easy o use as well.
