    Default Which hand calls to get

    What hand calls do you have the best luck with for coyotes? And which call would be effective for wolves?
    I have a foxpro wildfire 2 that called out a few coyotes, but I think hand calls would work better.

    What I understand is people up here like the open read calls better. mostly because the internal reads calls freeze, I've never called anything in with my hand call but that more has to do with my lack of trying ( I've got a fox pro that I use a bunch I have the hand call as back up).

    I like to use 2 different Screery calls, one Snow Shoe hare and the other is a adult Jack Rabbit I think. Be careful with them, the bears like them too. One of the best calls I have seen in action is a howler call, many makes and models, but they work very well. Wolves will come to this to beat up the coyotes. Coyotes like to check out the new guy in their territory. Good luck.

    Mouse squeaker as well. Once they start getting close, or if you see signs of fox, use the squeaker.

    One thing I've done for a mouse squeaker is removed some of the little plastic squeakers from some pets squeaker toys. While in the field calling I put one of them in my mouth so that if something comes in close there is no movement on my part to give me away like my hand caller would. I've noted that some toys have better sounding 'squeaks' than others. If u have a pet around, try one out on them. They really get their attention. (Yeah, I know, there is that small chance that a guy could swallow it but I figure it would all work out in the end anyhow.)

    The big question would be: would you put it in your mouth again?

    There is a guy in Kenai or Slowdotna that makes hand predator calls for Alaska........the are very fairly priced. He calls a lot of wolves. He works with them when he builds them so they are properly tuned.

    If you're trying for coyotes, start out every stand with a howl (too many makes and models to choose from) Diaphragm ones sound best (check out MFK calls) if you can get the hang of a diaphragm.

    As for the rest, I have had great luck with the Predator quest calls from Les Johnson, they are open reed, easy to call and can make a slew of sounds. This is what is on my lanyard when I get bored with the shockwave, or need something just a little different for a call shy coyote or cat.
