The Story Behind Slayer Calls Begins with CEO’s Grandfather, a Carpenter
Bill bought a lathe for turning and shaping the wood and started working with his hands. Creating high-quality handcrafted masterpieces was a family tradition. Bill’s grandfather was a Sicilian immigrant whose custom furniture business produced pieces still in use at Bill’s house today. His father worked steel after serving in the Marines. And his uncle, a cobbler, was so talented in working leather that he fixed up the gloves and shoes for the Bay area’s professional baseball teams. Using the lessons he’d learned from the men in his family, Bill turned call after call. Each hunting call that didn’t meet his standards taught him what causes a call to work, what makes it fail and how to create a variety of sounds. Working toward the perfect duck call started as a hobby. But over 10 years, Bill became relentlessly obsessed with building a quality call for the everyday hunter that could do everything really well.
