At Severen & Severen Ltd., game calls are our calling. If you’re a hunter, collector, or both, we hope to serve your interest, as the products we make have been designed and created by hunters and collectors alike.
Every call produced today at Severen & Severen Ltd. is individually hand turned and finished to create unique one-of-a-kind masterpieces. The polycarbonate call inserts (toneboard and wedge) found in our duck and goose calls are fabricated in-house and have been tuned to produce the greatest range of octave tones for each species. Depending on wood grain, each call may receive up to 6 coats of a specially blended marine grade spar varnish to bring out the true luster of the wood grain while also providing a “completely” waterproof and UV protected call. Our special attention to complete interior and exterior finishing virtually eliminates expansion and contraction of the wood in adverse weather conditions, resulting in little-to-no change in tonal quality of our calls. Such attention to detail also prohibits the possibility of air seepage at the seal ring level (thus making a call more difficult to blow) as well as avoidance of moisture impregnation of the wood grain, which could ultimately result in fracturing and/or cracking of a call body in cold weather conditions.
Below you will find a list of what we currently have in production.
Our selection changes daily, so if you’re interested in having a custom crafted call, we kindly request that you contact us first to confirm availability of desired spices.

Our selection changes daily, so if you’re interested in having a custom crafted call, we kindly request that you contact us first to confirm what woods are available.
Please note that due to allergic reactions, we do not create calls from the Rosewood family (Brazilian, Bolivian, Honduran, East Indian & Cocobolo) or Satinwoods.

Our current selection of goose calls include, short reed Canadian calls and specklebelly goose calls. The unique design of the insert found in our short reed Canadian goose calls allows our customer’s to reverse the position of the reed to raise the octave of the tone from Greater to Lesser Canadian goose. Our Specklebelly goose calls are equally effective on Ross and Snow Geese.

One of our most popular calls, the Gamebird whistle, is a must on any duck hunter's lanyard. It can reproduce the calls of the Green Winged Teal, Pintail, Widgeon, Wood Duck and Drake Mallard, which cannot be done with a standard "quacking" call. In addition, the Gamebird Whistle can accurately produce a Bobwhite Quail call to locate those hard-to-find coveys.

COW ELK CALLS
Come fall, the bulls break from the bachelor herds and begin the gathering phase of their harems...
It's during this construction phase that the dominate cow elk of each herd initiate inductees into their harems, with some cows lost during hunting season leaving yearlings left behind looking for a home, and some joining from other herds with the loss of a senior bull. It's the sounds these cows make during the harem gathering phase that can pull a bull away from the herd to see if an outcast is welcome.
TURKEY YELPERS (a.k.a. Trumpets)
With a history that dates back nearly 4000 B.C., the yelper (also know as a turkey trumpet) can be one of most effective calls to use during spring turkey season for bringing in the mature long-bearded Toms. Our unique design is highly regarded as the best currently available on the market and with having been equally compared in tone to the Holy Grail of yelpers, the Cox “Green Hornet”. There is little reason to wonder why we cannot make these calls fast enough! The standard mouthpiece found in our yelpers are hand crafted from Sterling Silver.
