Foiles???

8 posts in this topic

I am an experienced college age hunter and I was just wondering on info on the different types of Foiles duck calls out there. I have been looking at mostly the Sraight Meat, Dead Meat and Timber Rattler versions. Any help would be great, thanks!

Well I mainly hunt smaller bodies of water with a few hunts on some larger bodies but always from shore. I hunt aroung Valley CitY in ND and Ortonville in MN so finding birds is usually not an issue nor is bringing them down from way up. I think this means that I should be looking at a double reed but I am not sure. I usual just buy the calls on sale but I want to upgrade.

MNwaterfowler,

I used to go to school up at NDSU and did ALOT of hunting in the Valley City area. I used the Foiles Dead Meat and never had a problem with it. It never seemed to freeze up on those cold days and was very loud when trying to pull down ducks over fields and water. The valley City area has alot of hidden gems that can be very productive. I am hoping to take a trip back there very soon.

try the new ph-2 made by zink its a nice little double reed, my brother blows thru a dead meat and he likes it, we both hunt over big water so neither of us use a double reed we need that crack of a single to bring em down.

One of my good hunting buddies is a die hard Foiles equipment guy. He has a strait meat, had a rattler too but sold it. Thing about the Foiles calls is it seems to take a while to break them in. I wouldn't leave your other call at home for a while once you get one. But definitley nice calls.
