5 posts in this topic

i heard alot about the foiles strait meat honker but i was wondering how the strait meat mallard is? good call? or what's your guys prospective on any of your favorite duck calls.

i know the seasons just about over but i still practice year round and i have a little extra cash layin around. the old lady thinks i have enough calls but i believe you never have enough.

That is the call I use and all I can say is I like it... I'm sure some others can give you there comparison to other calls they've used.

I have the Strait Meat Mallard and the Foiles Timber Rattler(along with about 50 other duck calls) I use the Timber Rattler a lot more than the SMM. The SMM is a loud call and is great for comps or open field hunting. The Timber Rattler is more of a realistic or "meat" call. Foiles came out with the Dead Meat Mallard this year that is supposed to be a hybrid of the SMM and the TR. If you are going to use the call for hunting, the DMM is the one I would recommend if you are going with a Foiles. All three of them are nice calls, but the DMM is probably the most versatile.

Check out the echo line of calls also. You can actually get great souunding call for cheap out of them. RNT has a bunch of good ones to. I would check on the daisy cutter.

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...
