Title: Game call reliably adjustable for different sounds

Abstract: A box type game call wherein a striking member is attached at one end by a screw to one end wall of a box. The striking member has one or more slots for receiving the screw shank for movement of the screw shank along the slot or slots to different positions for varying the orientation of the striking member relative to the box for adjusting the sound quality. In one embodiment, a pair of slots cross each other. The striking member has a plurality of recesses along a slot for receiving the screw head whereby the striking member may be adjusted reliably to different positions by selecting the recess in which the screw head is received. In accordance with an alternative embodiment, a disc is fastened to the box so that it is rotatable, and the screw is eccentrically mounted to the disc so that striking member orientation is adjustable by rotating the disc to a different positiion.
