You are right....lots of brands work. But I know on some of the friction (pan) calls I've bought, didn't sound good at all. Did any of ya'll get that 4x4 thing with the 4 different matierials on one call back a few years ago? I bought one of those when they came out and it sounds horrible!!! I never took it to the woods. For the most part though, they sound good...but every once in a while, there will be one that souds terrible. Anyway, ya'll keep em coming!I like a natural slate or a good box call. Lot's of brands work.
I cain't help but tell the truth....I saw a group of turkeys across a mans field...couldnt tell what they were it was so far off, but just a few scratches on your caller had two gobblers and a hen within good shooting range...but it wasn't part of my hunting allowance:wink: One old hen with a beard kept me real busy on our place...ever time I called...here she come just yelpin like crazy!:up:Dang John! Think my face is turnin redder that a better boy t'mater
Thanks for the compliment:thumb:
+1 on that. I love Ol' Yeller. I called in my first bird with it. He had a 12.75" beard and won my a Beretta shotgun, so I have some serious emotional attachment to that call.The old yeller was also a good and inexpensive call, but not sure if they make them anymore.
Thanks John! :up:Double M Custom Calls: [email protected] or PM him. He's on this site as DoubleM With just the lightest pressure, my Doble M Custom call emits a loud yelp, soft purrs and clucks, squeals etc. You won't be disappointed. There was some pictures in the contest where I won the caller, but they were deleted.
Some of yall might laugh but one of the best sounding slates that I have, even though it technically isnt slate, is The Freak by Primos.
I have the Feak and Crystal Freak and have actually had the most luck with these calls the past few years. Killed 5 birds the first year I had one (AR and Mississippi) and a couple in 06 and 2 in 07 with the Freak and 1 so far this year. I've also killed several birds with the Ol' Yeller and it is a good sounding call too. I like the Primos Freak calls b/c of the leg strap, it makes it really convenient to use while sitting waiting on a bird...The old yeller was also a good and inexpensive call, but not sure if they make them anymore.
