I have been thinking lately that I could hand make some coyote calls and tune them my self. I have a neat idea of what to make them out of but wont share it now since I want it to be original. I figure after people hunt with me instead of just giving them the skull and tail that I could add a coyote call as well.

Like the one that you showed me when we went yoting PCH? You could market those to the Pink Pistols. LOL! :eek:

If you have the tools and the time do what ever you like.

I wonder if it would be profitable or just a hobby.

Sounds more like a hobby unless you can get the supplies cheap & sell a lot of them.

It may be a cool venture...

If you want to turn it into a business (not just a side thing), you need to do an industry analysis, identify other players, identify your own core competencies, learn how to exploit it without being imitated, and start making pro-forma financial statements. If the NPV (Net Present Value) > 0, then you have a green light :12::wheelchair::nuke:

Edit: Oh yea, forgot to add, if you're competing against other makers, try to figure out if you can compete with their economies of scale. If coyote calls are commoditized and easy to make, then competition will be based on efficiency and price. If you can find out a way to convince customers that your call works better and justify having them pay a higher price, you can succeed. Plz disregard this if you're just going to do this on the side, lol.

I love mine from Jawbreaker. It looks cool and sounds better, but since Im a newbie at it, I can only call in my dog Max.

There's not a lot of money to be made in predator calls. if you make production calls you can probably do pretty well but custom calls are alot of work for the money you make. I make and sell calls because I love doing it not because I want to make a killing at it, I make a few bucks on the calls I sell and that goes right back into materials and tools.

Jawbreaker-
Do you have a catalog of pics of the calls you have made? I'm going to pick some up eventually but I'm not sure on the color/style I want.

I'll post up all of the calls I have available tonight, and I can make anything you can think of( for the most part). So if you have a design you like or want to see let me know and I can try and turn it.
