Need new call

Postby Giv'em3 » Sun Dec 12, 2004 9:34 pm

Hey guys can anyone tell me what a good snow goose call is? I have a haydel but I don't like it very much. Any ideas are welcome, thanks a head of time. :help:

I have one thing to tell you don't get a Lohman Snow Goose Flute. I have one and it doesn't sound anything like a snow goose. :thumbsdown: It is also way too loud. I have another lohman snow goose call and it sounds great. It only cost $8. I don't think you need to spend over $40 to get a good snow goose call, but that is just me.

I bought a Primos Shaved Read. less than 20$ and I am told it is what the guides use in Canada.

If I can just get a tape and learn to blow it now...

Primos shaved reed for me too. I learned to use it by listening to the geese, and then trying to mimic it. When they get in close, I don't even use the call, cause when you have a big bunch of snows, I don't think they can really hear you anyway.

Go with a good custom short reed and you won't have to keep rebuying the manufactured ones. I got this one from nodak outdoors and its a very clean call.

My Choice

I put together a lanyard of snow goose calls for my best friends son for high school graduation gift. I purchased a Foiles Tundra Saver, Tim Grounds Acrylic snow goose call, Sean Mann Acrylic Snow goose call and a RNT Quackhead snow goose call. The RNT was only $26.

I had a posting on another hunting website and they recommended a Basin Abdominator highly
