Hunter's Specialties Offers New Turkey Call

Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

Hunter's Specialties® new Limb Shaker Owl Hooter is an easy-to-use call that helps hunters locate gobblers early and late in the day.

The reed style call has a realistic raspy sound with three holes in the end of the call to funnel sound. It allows hunters to not only call softly when gobblers may be near, but also to call loud for birds farther away while still sounding like a real owl.

The call is molded of tough heavy duty plastic and is weather resistant for hunting in the wet conditions that are usually encountered in spring.

The Limb Shaker Owl Hooter sells for a suggested retail price of $16.99

You tube turkey calls. Maybe worth a try.

It is the night before our turkey opener in the fall here in New York State.  Just for the heck of it got on Youtube and searched turkey calling tips.  There are a lot of videos out there with sound.  You tube turkey calling lessons - Maybe worth a try?

Good luck out there guys - go get them!

This is one of those times when I learn more from YOUR replies !

This is one of those times when I learn more from the replies that you guys have made than from the original post.  When I read the original post describing the new Limb Shaker Owl Hooter call I thought hmmm…maybe I should get one of those.  I mean gee – if it really helps hunters locate gobblers, that has got to be a good thing, right?  As you guys have made note Hunter’s Specialties makes some good calls so maybe I need another?  But then as I read your replies it prompted me to think about my limited turkey hunting experience.  I seem to hear plenty of gobblers in the mornings (there is no evening hunting of turkeys legally in New York State – we can only hunt until noon – yeah I know – its stupid, but its the law here.) Anyway – I hear gobbles in the morning and the gobblers answer back to my slate call.  So I guess I really don’t need a new call to help locate the turkey toms.  I need some way to lure them to come within shotgun range.  That’s something I have not yet figured out.  By the way – the latest Dick’s Sports flier advertised 25% off all remaining turkey calls in stock.  Just maybe I ought to go take a look at what they have…just in case I really do need a new call……

great products

Hunter's Specialties does make some great calls.  If I were to invest in more turkey calls, I'd try to find calls that imitated more hen noises.  I haven't had any trouble locating a tom in the early morning or late evening hours.  They seem all too eager to sound off, but not nearly as eager to come running in.

I've always wondered what affect it has on a Tom when you make all that noise.  Does he now know where something "you" are?  I had an old coyote call lying around and I took it turkey hunting.  Boy, did it get some attention.  I had toms gobbling all around me.  But I sure didn't have any of them come sashaying in. 

In no way am I trying to say that the Hunter's Specialties locator call isn't good... I just have learned that I do much better being quiet.  Even my late afternoon calling is quiet and subdued.  And it has been quite successful.  Last year I called a longbeard in for my brother-in-law in the middle of the afternoon with nothing but my box call and a little mouth chirping.

I never seem to need that

I never seem to need that many locator calls.

I just let out a call with my mouth, and usually get a reply. 

I hear about crow calls, owl calls, and who knows what kind of calls.

If I could just figure out what to do AFTER I locate them, I'd be happy... lol

Well, there's one more gadget

Well, there's one more gadget for the turkey hunter's vest. There seems to be no end to the line of mouth calls, box calls, slate calls, shaker calls, etc. that are brought out for purpose of fooling old tom turkey. I see that someone came out with a "squealing hen" call that's supposed to imitate the sound a hen make when she's being bred. I guess that's supposed to make other gobblers come running - sort of like a love sick cow moose call and thrashing the willows with a canoe paddle will bring in the bulls.

 When it comes to making a tom gobble, I've seen that just about any noise will do it. Slamming a car door, honking a horn, shooting a gun - or an owl hoot. The best one I ever saw was a guy who did an owl hoot with his mouth - no call needed. It worked every time.

I know that some calls do work. Some work very well sometimes, and others work well at other times. So I guess the wise hunter will have one of everything every time he goes hunting.

Hey - I think that's the manufacturer's main idea, don't you? The only problem is, now they have to make the vests with more and more pockets, compartments and pouches to carry all these gadgets. Hey - I think I need to go out and buy a new vest.

Just to follow up my previous post:

Hunters Specialties puts out some very good products. I have some of them and have used them with success. I didn't intend to imply that they don't work or that there are too many on the market. There are a lot of calls out there, for turkey as well as every other game animal. On the whole, that's a good thing, because it gives hunters more options for their particular hunting style and territory.

I'm sure this new owl hooter call will be just the ticket for many turkey hunters. I'll be looking for reports and stories of those who use it.
