A Awesome Goose Call Between $0-$40?

Postby Greekmetallican » Mon Sep 05, 2005 12:30 am

Can you please share which goose call you think would be good for me to go out and spend money on?

I already have the HS Slammer, which in my opinion is garbage.

I have the Big River LOng Honker which is the greatest.

And 2 other Lohman ones.

Thanks

Theres not an "awesome" call within $40. There are some "good" ones tho.

Canada Hammer II
Any of the Zink Polys
A little bit over the budget you could get a nice Grounds poly

The best goose call between $0-$40 is..................the one that you can blow and make sound like a goose. You're gonna get all kinds of replies from us and no two will be the same. You're best bet is to find somewhere you can try them out yourself, then you'll know what the best one is for you. I may love a call, but when you blow it, you might hate it. No two people blow a call the same, so it's up to you to find out what's best.

But since you asked, the calls I've blown in that price range that I've liked are the BG Canada Hammer II, Zink polys, Quackhead Goozilla.

I agree for the price Winglock is hard to beat and it is an easy blowing call.

Keep in mind there is big difference between blowing a flute and a short reed call I myself use to blow a big river and had a lot of difficulty transitiong to a short reed. I used a Scobey 400 as a transition call and knocked down that call rather quickly they retail at Cabelas for between 29.99 and 39.99 I think.

I picked up a goozilla quackhead the other day just cause for a cheap call to have around and for backup. sounds pretty good, quite but good. I like it better then the hammer II but not as much as the zinks. It was $22 at wall-mart. The only bad thing is that is pretty ugly imo. Blue insert with neon green guts... kind of cheapish lookin. But if it works, go with it!

Only thing about a canada hammer II is that if your a spitter (like me :oops:) it will go high and scare the geese aways.

Sorry LIL buddy....that is totally false. If you don't have one ouce of calling ability, it may.....but geese come in and call in a 100 tones, pitches, & levels of volumes. Just because you have a higher pitched call, by moisture being in it......it won't scare them away......competence does.......errr sorry lack of skill. :toofunny:

A cometent caller can recover and still bring them in. If you think that this happens for you....and you believe that.....bring more than one call into the field.
