What calls to get on a budget?

I am new to Predator hunting. I have just purchased a .308 for long range shooting and what to try it out on some of these New Mexico Coyotes.

What calls do you experienced hunters suggest?

I am on a budget, Digital calls most likely are going to be out of my price range.

I am looking to stay under $30-40 bucks to get me started.

Thanks

Brandon

Try a Crit'R-Call. Comes with a great set of instructions and like 4 extra reeds to customize the sound. It is loud as hell and works great. I think I got it for like 12.00 at Wholesale Sports.

Also, I would recommend you stick with open reed calls. I have called in very few with closed reed calls, and that's only when I was doing some real trickery with my hands and diaphragm. Learn the open reed calls, they are way more versatile. You can also put a rubber band on it and it's just as easy to use as a closed reed.

Good luck!

Thank you.

Will try both ideas.

Al's has some good stuff on that site.

Open or Closed reed was going to be my next question. You just beat me to it.


Thanks

+1 on the Crit'R-Call. Very good calls for beginners and experts. And for $30-$40 you could get 3, maybe 4, of the different models.

Electronic or Digital calls don't have to be expensive. I use the Cass Creek Big Horn speaker (got it $30 locally). Use a $25 MP3 player from Wal-Mart (make sure it has a "repeat" function). And downloaded all my calls for FREE from www.varmintal.com and www.mscustomcalls.com . Here is the link for the speaker. It works great, has a 75 ft. cord, built in amplifier, and is completely controled from the sending unit (MP3 player, iPod, etc.)

- Big Horn Remote Speaker #099

I have calls for everything from small varmints, coyotes, to hogs.

I gotta put in the word for Sceery calls here. I have used them since I got in the game and they work well. The AP-6 is a bit call that really produces some great sounds. High and low pitched sounds. I have called in ALOT of critters with it. The AP-7 would be my next favorite Sceery call.
