my brother...he uses his own voice and brings them in every time....if I am not going to be with him than I use the "old raspy hen" or will make a few very light calls on my slate and just be silent after that.

Phil,

I think I own every call known to man.......... smiley-shakehead-blue.gif

When it comes right down to it tho, I use a mouth call (Quaker Boy), Primos Crystal "Freak", and a Primos Single-sided Box Cutter........... smiley-thumbs-up-aqua.gif

Here's a pic of my back-up drawer.................... laugh.gif

I bought some Primos mouth calls at the Tune-up. Gonna try them this year, will practice on my commutes to/fro work. I was always intimidated by the mouth calls (I have that gag-reflex thing), but it was much easier than I thought, don't sound too bad IMO. It will be nice to be hands-free versus using the box or slate.

I picked up a HS Strut Squealing hen call but it sounds so much like a dying rabbit call. I wouldn't be surprised if you could call coyotes with it. Maybe I'll take it out with me while I'm scouting and see what happens.

My top calls:

Locater: Primos sound dog coyote call or a Red wolf gobble tube
Mouth call: woodhaven grey ghost or Sadler McGraw signature call (super realistic)
Box call: Dad's Neil Cost replica (cant afford the real one)
Pot style: woodhaven cherry classic crystal or 2008 NWTF call maker award winning aluminum face with cherry pot.
Other: Home made turkey wing for fly downs.

I did by a HS squealer so I might give that a try but I dont want any more yotes this year. I shot 5 last year and no turkeys.

Woodhaven makes some nice calls and they sound great. I have their slate call.
