People Vetrepreneurs: Unguided Custom Calls David Reeder November 11, 2015 Join the Conversation “Getting wounded changed my life forever and helped shape me into the man I am today. I may have been wounded but I no longer consider myself a wounded warrior.” So sayeth the HMFIC of Unguided Custom Calls, Brian Knapp. Knapp is a former Marine and Purple Heart recipient who turns all his waterfall calls by hand so no two is exactly alike. Duck calls, goose calls – if you need a call that looks and sounds good, here’s a vetrepreneur artisan you might want to check out. Be the talk of the blind is the Auburn, New York based company’s motto, and given what we see as we go through their pictures we think it’s apt. Some are wet sanded, some are polished, some have silver bands, other black nickel; they come in black pearl, assorted acrylics…in short, he can build just about anything you could possibly want. Knapp spent 5 years in the Marine Corps with a deployment to Afghanistan, where he was wounded by an IED. He has been making calls for approximately a year now (and apparently also makes tap handles – as you’ll see if you visit Turning Stone Casino at the Upstate Tavern). “When you purchase a call from Unguided Custom Calls you will not find a burn line, chip, knick or blemish on the polish. As you can see from the close up photo, lines are smooth, the polish shows a reflection and it looks aesthetically pleasing.” Brian Knapp #bethetalkoftheblind Company: Unguided Custom Calls (@unguidedcustomcalls) Primary focus: Hunting and outdoor (Custom waterfowl calls for hunters) More information: Home page: http://www.unguidedcustomcalls.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/UnguidedCustomCalls Instagram: https://instagram.com/unguidedcustomcalls/ [email protected] Explore RECOILweb:Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and MuseumRE Ranger Launches New Eye Pro at SHOTGlockStore - new G43 Mag Extensions AvailableAA-12 Semi-Auto Shotgun Now Available For Pre-Order NEXT STEP: Download Your Free Target Pack from RECOILFor years, RECOIL magazine has treated its readers to a full-size (sometimes full color!) shooting target tucked into each big issue.
