Tuscaloosa Hyundai owner, Barry Buckner, is truly giving back to Tuscaloosa with some unique items.


Wingbone Turkey Calls.

Yes, that's right..

Tuscaloosa Hyundai owner Barry Buckner has a passion for hand-crafting Wingbone turkey calls.

These aren't just any Wingbone turkey calls either. Wait, there's more. These are truly special, hand-crafted turkey calls with a custom display box PLUS thirteen Majestic Swarovski Crystal Rollerball Pens.

According to Buckner, this started as a hobby of sorts and has now, turned into a business. These calls are in high demand due to the way they are hand-crafted by Mr. Buckner.

Buckner wants to use some of these special items to help The UCP of West Alabama with their "Big Dreams Outdoors" fundraiser on August 31.

Buckner, and Cody Ingram from UCP of West Alabama, visited with Steve & DC on WFFN-FM (95.3 The Bear) to shed light on the venture.
