The first time I heard one of these moose calls I thought someone was using a duck call. Seriously... it was a terrible sound.
I thought to myself, "How is it possible that this thing will call in a moose?"
This type of call is suited for those hunters who are unwilling or unable to use their own voice. I can tell you now, that using a reed style call will take a little practice.
Don't buy one of these types of calls and expect to run out into the woods and have moose running towards you. You might say these calls are a little like a musical instrument... practice makes perfect.
Of course not all calls will make exactly the same sounds, but that is OK. Just like you and I, our voices are not the same and neither is that of a cow moose.
We will be testing one of the brand new models from Muskie Moose out this season... we'll be reporting back to let you know how we did.
Well I can say I tried it and didn't like it. I went back to the more traditional style horn. Which in my case is our fiberglass call.
I would like to hear from you, my readers; do you have any experience using this style of game call? How well do they work for you?
Hint: Buy yourself a CD with recorded moose sounds and try to imitate them. Once you know what moose sound like in the wild you should be able to duplicate the sound using the call of your choice. If you are unable to mimic the sounds, try a different call. Keep trying different ones until you achieve the results you want.
Well, I can't really say that I have found even one reed style moose call that I can recommend.
