    I need to get a coyote/predator call and recall someone talking about some sort of rabbit howler or something that brought them in from a decent distance. I'm not looking for something pricey here, just a good mouth-driven call that comes highly recommended?

    Just go to AllPredatorCalls.com and get a closed reed jackrabbit call. It doesn't matter whether or not you have jackrabbits where you hunt. I would recommend Ed Sceery's AP-3 as a great first call.

    Good Hunting,

    Bob

    If your hunting where its well below freezing get an open reed call. Nothing worse than walking a mile and in the first 1 minute of calling you have a freeze up on a closed reed call.

    id go with the primos KI-YI. its one of my favorites. and its only 14 bucks. you can do everything from rabbit distress ( jack or cotton ) , woodpecker, and if you play with it a little you can get a pup distress out of it by removing the mout peice and applying pressure to the reed with ur top lip.

    Heck, I have about 15 of 'em and none of them work.

    I have a neighbor that is successful with any of mine.

    Therefore, he call, I just watch and share the shooting.

    I don't think is as much the call as the caller......

    I like the Critt'r calls, like the song dog jr., also like the Carver calls, Kerry is a very talented guy and the ELK power howler.
    Product Listing Predator Call - Single Open Reed
    The song dog can do all calls from howling to bunny calls.

    Having predator hunted in many states -i'm originally from ohio- the best all-around call i've used/heard is the burnham brothers mini-blaster.It's a semi open reed caller that you can howl with or make most any type of prey sound with.
    I've got -critter calls -johnny stewart -circe -and many more -the mini-blaster calls in coyotes and is very easy to learn to use.
    About $11 -worth twice that..-Mike

    Thanks for the tip, I just ordered a mini-blaster and the cassette "Mini Blaster, Gary Roberson on the Mini-Blaster." I've only yote hunted once and never used a yote call, so I should be able to give it a thorough review from a newbies stand point.

    I have been a big fan of Randy Anderson's line I own most of them. The Lil Dog comes in a combo set that comes with 2 open reed calls and a detachable horn. The larger of the too is a decent howler and the smaller green one is a great rabbit distress all the way from a Jack to a Baby Cotton. If your looking for a Howler I love the Red Desert and the Hot Dog, Yotes love the sound for some reason and normally talk back. As the other guy mention the Ki Yi is one of Randy's also its a good Yiper and rabbit distress. I normally pick up his calls off of e-bay pretty cheap just have to hunt for them. Good luck Man its Mainly your preference and personal skill that will dictate what kind of call you use.

    It's hard to beat Primos, especially for the price. I've bought three of them and gave one to my son-in-law. He loves his. Mine has worked every time I've tried it. The first time, I actually called in a pack of feral dogs that were looking for a meal. I normally use the cottontail in distress or jackrabbit in distress calls. To me, I don't think it sound like a rabbit in distress, especially when I blow it loudly, but it sure brings the coyotes in. Whatever it sounds like, to a predator, it must definitely sound like the dinner table is set. I've tried all of their calls. They work.
