It’s the call that will put him in your lap. Knight & Hale’s Outlaw was designed in collaboration with Michael Waddell and the Bone Collector team to be a no-frills call that functions flawlessly at producing a range of buck sounds.
In my mind, I’ve always imagined that it is the sexiest-, hottest- and loosest-sounding hens that attract the gobbler. So, when Chris Parrish and I teamed up to design the new diaphragm calls, we decided to give them all racy-sounding names. We had a blast coming up with those names, but we had even more fun working on the calls’ designs.
The acrylic call has become a fixture of the duck hunting community. Valued for its higher pitch and volume, hunters have accepted the greater cost associated with acrylic because they can hear its distinct advantages. They also know that the quality of the sound is consistent year after year.
Ask a group of turkey hunters to name their favorite type of call, and you’ll likely get a bunch of different answers. But the one thing they will all probably agree on is that the box call is the easiest of all turkey calls to master. The learning curve for a box call is much shorter than a diaphragm call or even a pot call.
Turkey hunting has a great heritage, yet it continues to evolve as a sport. For proof of its evolution all you need to do is look at the increasing popularity of run & gun type tactics. While the traditional image of the turkey hunter remains one of motionless patience, we are all more likely to bag that next gobbler using walking and calling techniques. As our tactics change our gear also needs to change also.
