Game call makers in legal battle over realistic turkey call

Down-N-Dirty Outdoors accuses Knight & Hale Game Calls of copying its air-blown turkey gobble call

Two game call makers are embroiled in a legal dispute over highly realistic turkey calls that are popular with hunters.

Down-N-Dirty Outdoors says it created its new air-blown turkey gobble call in 2010, and applied for a patent on it in 2011. The air-blown call is said to be more realistic than other types of calls on the market, such as shake calls. Down-N-Dirty met with many competitors to discuss joint ventures, including Knight & Hale Game Calls, which Down-N-Dirty claims it met with three times in the fall of 2011.
