Wanted: Knowledgeable hand caller

That's right - MAD howler free free free - you pay the postage.

This precious collector's call is current production priced at $15.95. Described my MAD as,"The most realistic coyote howler on the market."

I believe this is the absolute worst sounding call I've ever tried.

I'd like its new owner to post their own honest review on this website in the hand call forum. That's the deal, you get the call and the site gets the review. No one would believe me if I posted my own criticism of this POS, it being a Flambeau product and all.

Must be used as sold by Flambeau - no disassembly/modifications allowed

Is it the MAD Cherry howler enclosed reed?
Bought one a few years ago and returned it. Not a good call.
Edit: I could get a decent "challenge howl" out of it but other than that it's not worth the money.

My opinion may not be worth much, but every howler they make is a piece of ---- in my opinion, please do not send it anywhere close to me. thank you

Have never bought anything from Flambeau,went to thier website and they dont seem to be much into the predator hunting market.
they have few cheesy decoys and hand calls from Circe outside of that nothing!
I was hoping to get a look at this howler Gary is so proud of. lol

Paul, picture a deer grunt. That's what it is.

This is the one that I bought. That was bad.

Or, this may be the one Gary is talking about. Never tried this one so I have no opinion on it.

Let's hear it then, TA! We all know you can howl in coyotes using a bassoon, so wail away.

Thank you Chris and Tim. Tim, is yours a MAD? When was that style made?

The call I have is the cherry closed reed with the medium plastic horn. Yes, a deer grunt. I tried to get anything else out of it, even by taking it apart.
