i have been hunting with a homemade call for 2 years now but i have blow some on the market and my take is if you are looking for a call at a good price (cheaper) glynn scobey goose call(not the short reed) sounds nice if you have any experiance calling or tim grounds clearly call is easy to blow and sounds nice if you want to go the next step (i would it is worth it) zink and rnt are the stuff .... if you want to spend the money go with zink; cheaper and sounds awsome

Favorite goose call??

Postby Guest » Sat Oct 16, 2004 8:02 am

By far my favorite goose calls are Hammerdown calls. I have all three of their calls-Fatty, Havoc and T-Bone. I use the Havoc more than the other two because you can tune it for a higher pitch or get it down low. It is also a very fast call. It can do some of the best comeback calls I have ever heard. Hammerdown calls are also some of the best looking calls on the market. Great customer service and prices. :thumbsup:

Foiles Canadian Classic is the best call I have ever blown. Rainman and B&W calls are great too.

i use the Primos flute and mallard tone for easy/quick chuckles and Faulks flute for low long greeting call. i have varaties of goose calls but dont use them all, i basically like to buy them and practice before the season and pick the one i feel the best and comfortable with but need to practice more on the tim grounds and illusion short reed call. am looking to buy a Zink or RNT call. Good Huntin' :thumbsup:

i was wondering what anybody thinks about the poly acrylic sentinel goose call by southern game calls... are they good, bad, ok, is it a good call for beginers?

Postby quackkiller » Sat Oct 23, 2004 9:33 pm

ZINK! I just got a SR-1 Paralyzer about a week ago and I can honestly say I think that it was the best $140 I have ever spent in my life. It sounds so awesome and is very easy to blow. From now on the only goose calls I will be buyin are Zink! Can't wait to try out the Little Man! :salude:

Long honker and terminator made by Big River Game Calls. Cheap and easy to learn. However i am a fan of Zink also.

goose call

Postby Guest » Sun Oct 24, 2004 11:07 am

I currently blow a scobey and love it I cant seem to get desireable tones thru a short and have tried a couple different ones such as sean man express, tru tone, southern sentianal and hs slammer. The slammer I gan get some goose sounds but lacks the realism of the scobey. Any sugguestions

This is my 1st year of waterfowling over my own decoys so i got a Primos Honky Tonk, and it works alright for me (as i have practiced with it) i think its a decent call for a cool $20, but i dont know anything about it. Anyone here know something bout this call? Is it worth the $20? Thx for any help.

I turn my own short reed goose calls out of various woods and acrylics. On my lanyard I have a cedar, maple and acrylic, blackwood, walnut and cocobolo. I tune them all different as well as being different designs. I have blown allot of the cheaper calls and would recommend that if someone is looking for a call to blow several before deciding on one. Not saying that some of the cheaper calls (Wal-Mart) are not good calls but to look around and you can find better calls at not much more $$.

I don't know if any of you want to spend the money or what but In my book The acrylic supermag is the best call ever made but i will hand to zink he makes a nice call but if your killing geese over it then stick with it.

in my opinion are the best calls on the market. They are made in Illinios and are hands down the easiest call to master. winglock.com
