Recommend a Grunt Call
Please recommend a grunt call for me. I am 100% inexperienced and have never used one before so the simpler the better! I also need to find something that's reasonable to cheap in price.

There are alot of choices out there but i use the H.S. True Talker and the Primos Rubber Neck.They both sound good and are really easy to use.

Tru-talker, I like this call. I also have the easy grunter plus by Knight and Hale it works well also.
I have found for the vast majority of my deer hunting an immature buck grunt is goingto get you more overall action than one that sounds like a monster buck. Also bleats will get you alot of action. Get yourself some ratlin' atlers real or a bag for the times in the pre-rut when its windy and you can't get that buck to turn because he can't hear the grunt tube. They always hear the antlers.
As with all calling don't over due it. Use what you need but no more once they start coming let them come no more calling.
The can by Primos has also worked well for me.
Opener was thursday - have an Eight pt. and a seven point tagged out already. Eight is at the taxidermist.

I like the one by Hunter specialties also(True Talker),It is very easy to blow and sounds realistic.I am sure there are alot of calls that work but this one works for me.I used it to bring this buck from 100 yds to 30 yds last Friday.

i dont have a lot of experience with grunt calls, BUT while i the stand with one i have realized i HATE it. it makes a bunch of noise when you touch it or rub against it, i will be buying a rubber grunt call this season...
oh yea, currently i use a primos(not sure which one) with the plastic extension tube deal, thats what makes all of the noise.

Couple light grunts and turn the can over a couple times.
Also when you buy the Primos Can try a few of the cans,and pick out the loudest sounding can.They do vary.

The True Talker is the best I have used bar none. You can go REALLY quiet or as loud as you want with little effort, and I believe it is either under or right at $10. Easton94

I agree, the true talker is the way to go

Here's another vote for the H.S. True Talker
September 19th, 2005, 09:23 PM
another for the true talker. Great call. Hard to get a good fawn out of though. Have to push almost to the tip to get it high enough.....
September 19th, 2005, 09:27 PM
Thanks everyone. I do have a primos lil can I picked up earlier.
I will look for the H.S. Tru Talker.

I don't have any personal experience with the True Talker so I can't make a comment but I have used a bunch and the best of the best for me is the Quaker Boy Ridge Runner. It is guaranteed not to freeze up in cold conditions and it doesn't. You can adjust an o-ring and make every sound from fawn bleat to dominant buck. I have used this call in Canada in the winter and in the heat of summer in Delaware and it always performs. I also use it in conjunction with the big can by Primos and of course a rattle bag once mid October is here.
There are lots of choices, buy one of each!!

I lost my first one and went almost finatical...
Of course out of all of them I bought another one.
I wouldn't say to buy another,but atleast have this one with you for one because it does work.
I have a call by remington called a true tone that is a handsfree and got it because I heard it going off by a freind when hunting,I thought it was the real deal coming....so I got one of them to say for the sake of having a more smaller raspy bucktone to maybe get daddys attention,I am sure that any of them will do,but.
Ya just goota know when to talk,truly.

Great call! Used it last year and brought a buck back from 100yds. It has a sliding mech. that allows you to go from deep grunt to bleat. At least give it a look!!

Another vote for the True Talker. I believe you can buy one that comes with an instructional/short hunting video too.
