    I try to include symbolism in my work whenever I can.  It was with this in mind that I included the thin blue line beneath the double M’s as a symbolic tribute to Zach’s law enforcement legacy.  

    On Mike’s advice, I asked a mutual friend of ours to fine-tune the idea. And just like that, my vision was brought to life. I intend for it to be a subsidiary of Gobbler Knob Longrifles. I do not possess the ability to adequately thank those involved in seeing this to fruition…

    Today, June 15, 2023, marks the 7th anniversary of Zach’s death.  I am happy and proud to announce the launch of my new venture on this anniversary. And now, it’s an honor to share the legacy.

    In Zach’s memory, Mountain Music Game Calls will combine craftsmanship with art to showcase the most beautiful features and tonal quality a piece of wood has to offer.

    I’m working on adding this exciting new chapter to my website. In the meantime, I invite you to visit my Etsy page to see some of my work. It can be found at MtMusicGameCalls on www.Etsy.com.

    I’m humbled to be a minuscule part of this story man. And that would still be the case, even if the calls I have and have seen weren’t the world class caliber that they are. Anyone that wants the beat sounds, combined with the best classic looks , NEEDS one of your calls bro.

    What an awesome tribute to your son! You bet I’ll be ordering some calls both Turkey and deer! The box call I purchased for my father last year blew me away on how it sounded as well as the quality! You’re an amazing craftsman and an inspiration to all of us Blue Line guys out here as well as I’m sure making your son proud!

    So this is the announcement I've been from you that I've been patiently waiting for! 😁 Aaawww heck I couldn't wait to see what it was going to be and this totally exceeds what I thought it might be!
    This is the best fitting tribute to Zach. I know he's very proud of you up there in those mountains in the sky.
    I love the name, Mountain Music, perfect name for it. Thats definitely music hearing those Thunder Chickens.
    Thanks for sharing the story behind it, I fervently hope for great success.
    Thank you Rick and Zach 🙏 for you wearing the blue and your service, and to @Mike for your service and your input, small though it may have been, on this great news.

    @David I appreciate your comments and support. It’s been an emotional roller coaster to be sure. Don’t let @Mike fool you. He and Wyatt played a big role in my moving forward with this idea. 😎🥃🥃🥃
