i carry the pack bugle, imakadabullcrazy and the cow girl that way i can sound like a small herd. and since you can change the sound on the imakada... by squeezing the rubber part it makes the "herd" even more realistic
I have a Wayne Carlton mouth call and bugler, hoochie mama and one other bugle call that I can't remember the name. I've only used the cow calls b/c I haven't hunted during the rut yet. I just use the cow calls sparingly.
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
