Wild Turkey -- Book Review - Neil Cost Magic with Wood

Neil Cost - Magic With Wood
A photographic collection of unique and rare turkey calls
Author -- Michael F. Marks
Reviewed on Oct. 25, 2004 by Rob Ramsdale

Neil Cost has been recognized by his callmaking peers and turkey hunters everywhere as one of the finest turkey call makers ever born. His calls are being treated as works-of-art by many people today and are a great investment as collector items. Neil Cost passed away on May 29, 2002 but his calls will live on forever with this limited edition book of 1500 copies. You might not ever lay your hands on one of his calls but you can own this great tribute and photographic treasury of Neil Cost turkey calls.

This book is a photographic history of Neil Cost's callmaking career with 230 pages of professional, full-color photos that fill up the 8 1/2" X 11" pages. The author, Michael Marks, traveled far and wide to meet with many of the top turkey call collectors in the country and had their Cost collections professionally photographed. Each call featured has a large photo and a short history and description of the call with attention to its rarity as well.

The book is divided up into several sections with each section dedicated to one type of turkey call. It starts out with a long section on Cost's famous paddle calls featuring over 100 of the approximately 150 known Neil Cost Paddle Boxes. It then has a short section on his Scratch Boxes, Hen Tricks, Trumpet Yelper and Slate Peg and Pot calls. It ends with another long section on his short boxes of which there were about 5,000 made during Cost's callmaking career.

If you are a turkey call collector, a turkey hunter or if you simply need a gift for a turkey hunting fanatic, I highly recommend this book.
