Emu callers are an aboriginal hunting tool. Just like the didgeridoo, the emu callers are made from braches that are hollowed out by termites. When hit against the palm of the hand, emu callers make an unusual sound that arouses the curiosity of the emu. Once in sight, Aboriginal hunters would either hunt down the emu or steal eggs from the nest.
