  • SOLID WALNUT MUZZLE
  • LARGER QUANTITIES ARE AVAILABLE, CONTACT SELLER

Snowcrest claims that it can recreate the common bleats and soulful bawl of a frightened deer with the carefully constructed walnut mouthpiece. It should work with whitetail, blacktail and mule deer. To use it properly, it is best that you learn more on how deer communicate with each other.

This model aims to simulate the exact bleats. To start calling, simply blow into the tube. Practice is required to hit the correct tone. But as you get better at it, you should be able to achieve a whining, bawling bleat, similar to the one made by a lost deer trying to communicate with the others. Ensure that proper care is given to the device for longer wear; try not overuse it or be too aggressive when making the call. A lanyard will be included.
