Lewisburg, Ky. October 20, 2011 – For decades, hunters have been attempting to outsmart the wily long-beard wild turkey by mimicking the sounds of his hen. Through slates, diaphragms and boxes, hunters across North America have mastered the imitation of the various voices of the hen with clucks, putts, purrs, yelps, cutts, cackles and kee-kees. And in doing so, countless numbers of turkeys have been harvested. However, it is the sound of the long-beard himself that has eluded realistic vocal imitation.
That is, until now.
With today’s official introduction of Down-N-Dirty’s Haintägobble call, the folks at DND have achieved that which has been previously thought impossible—the Holy Grail of wild turkey calling—a hand-held call that challenges Toms. The DND Haint gobble call absolutely reproduces a loud, resounding gobble of a dominant long-beard. With very little practice, the Haint produces the identical sound, pressure, volume and force that naturally resonates from old Tom, and it’s that sound that brings him in with ferocity to defend a challenge to his territory. With the Haint in hand, that challenger for dominance is you.
Made from a one-piece walnut barrel with a hand-tuned and patented reed assembly, the Haint gobbler call has changed turkey hunting, now and forever. If you can’t believe such a thing is possible, visit www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGi8dI_h58M to see the teaser video. Turkey hunting really will never be the same.
“As successful as hen calling has been in the past, we have to remember that each time a gobbler has been called into range using hen vocalizations, the gobbler has been going against his nature to display and attract hens,” said Mark Coin, DND president. “The Haint has proven to not only entice ‘unkillable’ over-called long beards into close range, but more importantly, the Haint has shown itself to be very forgiving and easy to learn how to use properly. With minimal practice, even a novice hunter can be using the Haint call to produce unbelievable gobbles in a very short amount of time.
“We field tested the Haint call this spring and the results were absolutely incredible,” Coin continued. “This call will make even the weariest of old gobblers give their location away.”
No matter how long you have been hunting the cunning wild turkey, the Haint will certainly become the revolutionary turning point in the harvesting of the dominant male bird of the species. There simply “Haint” been anything like it in the past.
DND’s Haint gobble call will be available at retailers nationwide and conveniently online at www.downndirtyoutdoors.com (preorders will be accepted) beginning in January 2012. Suggested retail price of the Haint is $49.99.
