Carving duck calls and other game calls is truly a unique form of American folk art and LaSalle Parish has birthed more than a few outstanding artisans when it comes to ‘call making’. From the late James ‘Ed’ Yule, a master game call craftsman who created both works of art and function and who apprenticed many of the locals who carve today, to a host of present carvers, the guild of talent is impressive. There’s a high demand for handmade calls for both hunters and collectors and Louisiana is notorious for having some of the best in the world. LaSalle Parish carvers are right up there with the elite.
