This one screams. That blonde howler isn't the loudest but sounds really good. I can tweek it a little and get it louder, just give me a call.

Nope, just that in January, the winds where I hunt are usually blowing and I want to be able to get out and make them hear me when the winds are in my face. It's a little hard for them to know where I'm at if they only hear the wind. I've called them in from 800-900yds blasting an FX3 directly into the wind. Why change from electronics you say? It's just more challenging, exciting and rewarding to do it with hand/mouth calls.

I went up and saw jawbreaker on Saturday evening and picked up a new cow horn howler plus we changed out the reed on my blonde howler. What a difference in volume the reed change made for my blondie! Anyway, I took them out last night to an area where I've heard and seen coyotes before but no shooting is allowed due to all the new track houses. I first used blondie and did one of those long greeting howls. Blondie makes a high pitched type of howl like a female coyote makes. I could hear the pack react with yips and barks. I immediately switched to my new howler and found out it makes very nice male vocal howls. I blew several challenge howls and barks then listened for them. After about 2-3 minutes, I could hear them running up the hill and before you knew it, the lighting from the surrounding houses put them in plain sight. I counted 9 as they ran past me and into the track housing area then disappeared like ghosts. I was sure they would've winded me but they were hell bent on kickin' some other coyotes butt. I got up slowly (thought I soiled myself) and left the area wishing I could hunt this place. May have to come back with a crossbow :good: ...someday. Jawbreaker sure makes some fine howlers!!!
