    I'm very interested in trying one of Gary or Allen McCree's goose calls. I have a couple A50 Olts that I'd like to have one of them tuned and signed by one of them. Are either of these guys still making calls or would they even be interested in tuning an old Olt? I'm not on Facebook or anything and was told he has Facebook. Does anybody have Gary's or Allen's phone number or a place of business number?

    I am a member of Gary's hunting group. He no longer makes calls, but if you have a call he would tune it up for you. Try to contact him at (618) 727-0270.

    In your opinion just how much better can he make an A50 sound? I've heard nothing but positive information about him and his brother. Their calling and tuning abilities were second to none when it came to the A50's and A50 cut down. Since I was a kid in the late 80's growing up on a farm west of Jackson Mo., I started hunting geese with a single shot 20 gauge, A50 olt and a dozen worn out shell decoys that came from Davis Hunting Club at McClure Ill., I have respected the guys across the river. I had heard the names of McCree, Weller, and Grounds from back then.

    I have not blown a standard A50 so nothing to compare to. But I also know that he now blows a short reed call. He uses the old call for snow geese.

    Thanks. I got in touch with him a few weeks ago and sent him an A50 to modify.
