try 200+ for the redbone... they are sweet calls though I wont deny that

Get a chein caille learn how to call with it, for a year a 2 they are durable and under 100 dollars. Plus if you can call with a chein caillie you will pretty much be able to call with any of the upgrades. That's my thoughts, granted I am not a champion speck caller or nothen.

If you're anywhere close to Holmwood, get with Bill once you get it. He'll make it right for you and point you in the right direction. No point in being frustrated with a new call when you can go spend a few minutes with the guy who builds em and have him tune it for you just right.

I have both the poly & acrylic RCC. Spend the extra $$ & get the acrylic call....well worth an extra 100 $$... big sound difference between the two calls.

I don't doubt they will help. I think the rcc acrylic are nice calls. I've blown several polys and personally the tone of a poly just isn't what a chien is. I've been around the speck game a long time. The popular call is the rcc poly. But i'ma for under 100 bones a chien has the better tone. And high end redbone has them all beat hands down no contest.

I agree 100%, however the rcc poly is a way easier to blow than the chien caille. So to me, for a beginner, the rcc poly is a better option under $100

Would you all like to know what the best call is? It's the one the caller can work the best and the one he can say he has the most confidence in.

So how how about take these opinions and go from here and start blowing some calls then decide for your self.

Personally I got into RCC because I know the guys and hunt with some of them and they have shown me a thing or 2 along the way. I also have an old James Myers that i still use. I'm not the best but I can manipulate the call well enough to trick some birdies.

In the end I did it because that's what they taught me with so that's where I am with it. IMO they are the best. But that's all I know really.

Good luck and I hope you smack down some generals this yr. Nothing like working them birds and making them do the "Death Turn" as my cousin likes to say right into the decoys.

Confidence in your call is a major factor. I like a call that allows the caller to grow and the call still support what he or she can execute

From my experience there is a wall I have hit in the past with lower end calls that forces me as a caller to have to run according to what the call can handle

If a caller is having success on whatever brand,great,keep on keeping on

I wanted more,thus my switch from chien caille,faulk,haydel's,primos ---to redbone years ago

everyone blows different. same call may be different in two peoples hands. the one you are comfortable with and sounds the best when you blow it is the winner. Never find a winner on the first try.

PS Olt with modified guts and a blue Haydels (not sure if it hit the market) hang on my lanyard

Chien Caille, my buddy blows one and hunts out of a normal "duck" blind with open water on both sides and kills over 200 specks each year. He blows only ONE note. the cluck. its gets aggravating as crap, but he constantly clucks and they pour in.

You buddy has a blind in a good spot. Its not the call and its definitely not a "normal" blind.

I will swap blinds with him.... Blind swap... I will bring a check if I need that too...

Just my 2 cents. No call or brand of call will work just by hanging the call on the corner of the blind hoping the geese will see it and come in. It takes lots of constructive practice to learn how to properly run the call and make the full range of sounds. In addition it takes a knowledge of the birds and how and when to call to be a good speck hunter.

I started out on a Chien Caille and killed lots of specks with it. The first year that Bill and James formed Riceland I bought one and I am glad I did. I have tried the other premium speck call but I prefer the sound and performance of my Riceland. Through all of this time I have become friends with Bill and some of the Riceland staff. I am a satisfied customer and more importantly the specks really like them. The specks in SW LA are the most pressured specks in the U. S. If a call is effective here there is a reason for the loyalty of the users.
