9 posts in this topic

I am gonna be purchasing a foiles goose call in the next couple of weeks but dont know which one to buy. i want to get a nice foiles goose call for me and was wonderin what call you guys would recomend. i will mostly be hunting water but will sometimes hunt feilds. any help would be great! i was thinkin about gettin the strait meat honker but ive heard the showtime is better and just wanted to get some input from you guys before i made any desicions!

Thanks! Ben

I have a SMH and I like the call a lot. I have never used the showtime though. If you don't mind a used call I think that is the way to go. You can normally find a SMH for 80-90 dollars shipped used but good condition.

They are not bad calls. I have a SMH and have blown allot of his calls. I didn't care much for the showtime. But foiles calls don't fit my style of calling. I like Tim Grounds calls. The only thing i can tell you is go out and try a bunch of different calls and see what one fits you best.

This coming sat and sun if you have time Foiles and Zink and the Duck Commander are all going to be at scheels in mankato then you will have vareities of calls to try . make sure you blow them yourself because these guys are professionals and makes their calls sound great. i also blow a SMH .

if i were you i would go to a gander mountain or cabelas and try out all the calls before you even think of buying a call. Just listing to sound bits on the internet will not really help you in choosing a goose call that fits your style.

Good advice from everyone. Not all manufacturers calls fit an individual caller's style. Blow as many as you can. I have seen many geese fall in front of a SMH. I personally blow zink calls because they seem to work best for me.

Foiles makes a great calling video as well...one for goose and another for ducks. I've used a lot of different calls but like the Foiles SMH the best. I've seen more geese turn from long distances and key in from other fields responding to the SMH.
