Specklebelly Call

Postby bandedbrant » Mon Jan 06, 2014 11:25 pm

Hey guys looking to get a new speck call by next season and possibly before the end of season goose hunt. I have a couple in mind such as a redbone, chien chille and possibly a basin call. I currently have a Hayes speck call and am wanting to add another to the lanyard. Would love to hear what you guys out there use and what you have found to be the most effective for specks. Thanks in advance.

I picked up a Riceland Poly this season
Nice sound/nice value compared to Acrylic
I'm a novice spec caller, but I like my choice.

I like the Basin Ricer as well as the Anatra Maverick. Not sure how far you are from Sac, but the ISE Show is this Thursday-Sunday and lots of call vendors will have booths (Foiles, Basin, JJ Lares, Tru Edge). Always great to be able to try all the calls and have the reps tune them to your liking.

I suggest the buck gardener speck hammer. Better than the redbone.

buy em all and blow them all. Blow them at anything that flys in the air!! blow em at pelicans comorants irbis and anything else thats large in size. oh yea and if there is nothing flying....well just keep blowing it! Shoot the gun in the air 3 times then get back on the call asap! You should do well. then you could join the club at mendota!!

No no. First buy the most expensive call out there. Then hang it on the lanyard.

Age it for a year like fine wine. Then, when it's time to use it... Make sounds. Don't worry about your calling because that's not why you bought the call.

If you really want to impress people. Wear it to the check station window.

You will be considered a God among men. :lol3:

Of the calls you mentioned I'd go with the Basin, especially if you plan to use it this season. The redbone is a tough call to learn and I,ve heard the same of the Chien calls. Like mentioned above riceland makes a really good call as well

norcal pretty much any parking lot. got out to lot 2 theres a guy that hunts out there everyday and thats all he does. Lot 19 seems to be good for all the "pro" speck callers. even though theres no geese in the air. just one of my pet peaves! cant stand hearing those damn things when nothing is flying lol

I blow an Anatra Maverick Speck call and a Sean Mann Speck call. Both very easy to blow, the anatra is my go to. Blew a lot of different speck calls, these are my two favorite.

Works ok but sticks a bunch but that might be the chew having an effect on it.

I just picked up a JJ Lares. It is an easy blowing call. A lot easier than a Red Bone I was trying.
