    What are the best hand/mouth coyote calls?
    FWIW, I've decided to delay getting an electronic call B/C I need a chronograph for load development. This fall I plan to get a good electronic call.

    I'm pretty good at calling ducks, geese and turkeys. For turkeys I have several mouth and slate calls and one box call. I'm pretty good with mouth calls and have called in several turkeys with them. Slate calls are for "mixing it up" with the box or mouth calls to make it sound like there is a small flock with one or two horny jakes.

    All this is to say I can use manual calls fairly well, including a grunt call for deer.
    So I think I can learn manual coyote calls as well.

    I like open reed calls. More versatile and don't freeze up.... But heck, they all work.

    You know I used Burnhan Brother calls for years and called in a lot of Coyotes and Bobcats. With all the calls on the market I still use them and still call in a lot of animals.

    I have called more coyotes with the Tally ho than any other. Burnham Bro.was my first call, a rubber band call, Killed my first yote with it back in the 70s. had several other Burnham bro. too. I have used Johnny Stewart, critter calls, Primos and I have made my own calls. I to, like open reed calls. they all work.
