95% of my hunting is done with a flute. Not the regular flute like a Big River though, more like a Shoreman.

The sounds of a good flute blower are hard to beat in a goose blind.Def tried and true! I have a couple,seating on the shelf.... but for me..... I find it hard to switch off,while goose hunting. I love the sounds of both..... Guess I perfer the short reed to the flute but do think if I layed the short reed down/left it at home and only used the flute, would/could be deadly :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
Anyone else have a hard time making the switch or is it just me????

Same Big River Long Honker since 1989. Why quit using a call that has killed 1000's of birds?

I heard you running one of your flutes at the waterfowlers bootcamp Trevor. Sounded amazing! If I ever went back to one, yours or the Shoreman would definetely be my first choices. :beer:
