HIGH PRICE OF DIAPHRAGM CALLS

Postby Steve_In » March 31st, 2014, 8:40 am

About 5 or 6 years ago I scored a big lot of calls off eBay. Now I am down to my last few and I need to get some more. Seems like the same guys selling ammo got into the mouth call business. :( Man I am having sticker shock.

yea, it's getting a little ridiculous. I have a local call maker that's still pretty reasonable. I can get a couple years out of my calls so for a $12.00 call for two or three years don't seem too bad.

Im with Hook's and I am very happy that Scott has chosen to keep our calls affordable.. Seems to me anymore the average price is around 10 dollars with some calls ranging up to 15-16 dollars.. If you knew how much material cost was in a call you would shake your head at these prices.

As personal as mouth calls are the thought of spending 10-15 bucks to "try" something that most likely not pass the test gets old.

I'm not with hooks but they work for me and Scott Hook gives great service.

I know mouth calls can be a touchy thing to get right, but I would not hesitate to recommend Hooks calls.

Didn't buy any this spring but.I looked and.they are $5.75 a call. Not bad IMO.
Give him a call.

Thanks guys I ordered the propack from hooks. $25 OTD for 4 calls, not too bad. I also ordered from Brookside Game Calls, 6 calls for $19 OTD a little better. :D I have been using HS and liked them, just don't want to give Gander Mt any of my money if I don't have too.

Mouth calls aren't the only thing they sell that's expensive. Their prices are about ridiculous on almost everything
