How many should you own and how many should you bring in the field are totally different questions.

How many should you bring in the field?

I usually have 2 on the lanyard and one in my blind bag.

How many should you own?

MORE!

I can never have enough calls. I want one of every kind.

If your talking the field, I would say three.
Low, med, and hi pitched calls, for them days when they have no idea, what they want to hear.
But, the best call at times is the 4th kind......no callling at all. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

You nailed it. I always take 3 to the field and it does pay off. The high pitched call brings in the majority of birds, but there have been days when the med. and deep pitch were the only thing they wanted to hear.
