Yea, you were right. I started listening closer to what the geese flying over my place were doing and they were higher pitched than what I was remembering a "goose" would do.
I can run my apostle well enough. I can get honks, clucks, moans, murmers, donkeys... basically everything from disk 1 on the bad grammar cd (how they would sound to someone else besides me sitting in my truck, I don't know). It's just a lot more difficult to run than pretty much every other call I've tried. Maybe it is how I have the guts setup. I did monkey with them to try and get them to be the sound that I like. I can hit multiple notes with it too (higher and lower). I think I can hit 3, maybe 4 if I'm lucky, lol. I can run a long series of clucks, so it's not like I'm ever all that short on air, but it takes a harder push and pop to run a long sequence. I do know that it's tough for me to honk it quiet though because of the amount of air required, which while hunting over water echo's like a ****.
This is my second die hard. The first one the barrel and insert were pretty loose fitting, so I stopped by game fair the year before to talk to Mike about it and he just says "pick another one" because his mold was a little off on his first run, so I got to trade in for brand new. Thought that was pretty good of him. Actually, come to think of it I'm not sure if I've changed around the guts in this one since I swapped the call. I may have restrained myself from doing so...
I would love to get a wood call. Just the way they feel reminds me of using my dad's calls way back when. I wish there were more places to try calls around here. Game fair is the best chance I have, and there were only a couple of call makers with wood calls. Course if they are cheap enough, I could care less what it's made out of if I can make it sound good.
I'm also a huge fan of a good wood call. I own an old TG Super Mag in maple that will be burried with me when I die.
