Elk hunting is arguable the biggest allure in the West. Thousands of big game hunters from across the world travel to hunt the great Wapiti each fall and winter. There are many icons who’ve established themselves as experts in the field, but few hold the status that Wayne Carlton’s Calls possesses.
This year, there are numerous great products available to the public. However, the Wayne Carlton Mac Daddy and Rowdy Bull are two of the best. Check them out below and tell us what you think about them.
Wayne Carlton’s Calls Mac Daddy Calling Kit
The Mac Daddy is a solid option for the 2019-20 elk season. This kit comes with a removable grunt tube and baffle. It also comes with a DVD that’s packed with great content. The call is made from infinity latex and offers incredible versatility and control. It produces a superior sound that elk will surely deem as a natural source, so long as the caller knows what he or she is doing, eh?
All said, this call produces authentic bugles and nasal cow calls. This particular grunt tube is great for getting that volume we all want when calling over vast distances. It utilizes a rubber membrane that’s flexible and makes it possible to introduce inflection in your calling. The design conceals the diaphragm for maximum protection. It’s very easy to replace, though. It comes with a carrying lanyard and Realtree camo.
Wayne Carlton’s Calls Rowdy Bull Elk Call
The Rowdy Bull from Wayne Carlton’s Calls is another prime pick for your 2019 elk pack. This model is very easy to use and has interchangeable reed capabilities. It’s a unique bugle tube that offers the flexibility you want in a call. It comes with a single reed tone trough diaphragm. That said, you can use the double-, 2 ½- or triple-reed diaphragms, too. You can get those in the Rowdy Bunch Replacement Reed Kit.
The single reed is great for producing young bull vocalizations. The triple reed is great for mimicking the sounds of an older, more mature bull. And the 2 ½-reed call is perfect for covering the distance between each end of the spectrum. The best part though? It’s a small, compact call, yet it still gets the volume you want and need it to have. Like the Mac Daddy, it comes with a lanyard and in Realtree camo.
