SS Custom Calls is a family run business located in
Moccasin Valley near Lebanon, Va.
My name is Al Shoemaker, and I've been an avid turkey
hunter for nearly 25 years. The passion for the sport is
what led me into experimenting with building my own
calls. In the late 80's I decided to try my hand at building
a box call. It wasn't the best looking call, but it helped
me harvest several gobblers before I sat on it and broke
the soundboard. I only built calls for close friends and
fellow turkey hunters in the beginning. Farming took
most of my time back then. I was a farmer for 27 years.
After I quit farming, I started to get interested in building
box calls again. I really didn't plan to do this for a living.
It just sort of happened.  
In 2007, Josh and I started building calls together.  Not
really knowing what to expect, we offered some calls for
sale. One thing led to another and soon SS Custom calls
was born. We've been truly blessed to be able to make a
living doing something we both really love!
We've made many great friends that enjoy the same
passion for turkey calls and turkey hunting as we do.
