Speck Call??????

Postby jcrowder0207 » Tue Oct 08, 2013 11:54 am

Looking for another Specklebelly Call, I have a Riceland Acrylic (great call) but would like to have another call on my lanyard that would compliment it. Suggestions?

Pending the opinion of hard hunted birds, my faithful old re-reeded RNT is likely getting the bump from one of the new/current Lares (NOT the weak sister earlier model). Won't get loud like the Riceland but does neat things effortlessly, and I expect it will prove a great compliment to one of my Ricelands. Is the least back pressure sensitive speck call of the now couple dozen or so I've run and has a Murphy-proof design to maintain tuning when broken down. Can change shop tuning by trimming the reed or altering the toneboard like a J-frame, but once it's set, it's set. Bought it too late to hunt last season, but Spring specks ate it up.

(Was given a micarta Riceland this Summer and am a lot more uncertain of whether it or the hedge one I've been favoring will end up paired with the Lares at season's end.)
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

Rick do you find it's an easy transition between the bigger bore Riceland to the lares? Wood or acrylic?

The Lares is a big gutted call and runs much the same as the Riceland, just even less back pressure critical. Much easier to switch between those two than big and small gutted calls.

In case anyone is following, I bought the Lares. Just as Rick stated a very easy call to get "Speck" Sounds out of. I would Recommend this call to anyone starting out. Riceland is much more versatile, but takes a lot longer to get the hang of in my opinion.

There have been times when I've turned the trick with a LOUD call absolutely banging off the the trees where you hunt, but most of the good I've done there has been with quieter calls with less echo. And I'd be very surprised to learn you can run a Riceland with as much quiet finesse as the Lares. Know I can't.

You are right Rick, I can't. I do find the Riceland is much easier to add Raspy clucks, and murmurs, or maybe just not enough practice with Lares.

Thanks for tip. Slowly but surely getting more info out of you on how to kill Specks back there. Not that you haven't already given us a ton of info.

I value the tone differences as much as those in volume.

I Use Chien Caille they are made in Gueydan very easy call to blow and Easy to get in the conversation with a flock. Easy to make high pitch or deep grunts Ive been useing them for about 10 years and have had great success with them they last a very long time to im on my second one. I have a 13 yaer old blowing one this year and hes picking it up well Very easy to blow

I second the chien caille. I've had one for years and never had an issue with it.

I haven't owned a Chien Caille since Mervis was making them with Olt bodies, but I still enjoy going along for the show when someone wants to go to his place and get fitted with one. Sort of a "must do" cultural experience no speck caller should miss.

Third for Chiene Caille. It was the first and only call I own. Went pick it up in Gueydan and got a quick lesson from one of the Saltsmans. I think it was the son, I forget his name. I've tried other calls but can't them to work. Don't k is why.
