Full Version: Owl Locator Calls

For those that can't replicate the barred owl with their mouths, which calls sound the most realistic. I tried the Primos single reed call and it was not very good. Sounded more like a duck on steriods. I would like to hear about the HS Strut Hoot Owl or the Southland Hoot locator if anyone knows.
Thanks.

It would be hard to beat the H.S. Owl. It's a whole lot better than the Primos Owl Hooter. I like the Knight &Hale Owl Hooter as well. I have never used a Southland Owl Hooter.

sorry primos....

this is one area in which primos does not really have a call that stacks up....

We discussed this last year, here is the thread:

http://cabinchat.primos.com/index.php?showtopic=44623

my vote still goes to the Palmers hoot tube... cheap to buy, easy to use, and it works!!

before i learned how to use my voice i used the palmers hoot tube myself. same as hunt365.

i think its the easiest and best sounding owl call out there..

I completely agree with 365.

Primos does not make a good Owl locator. I love my Palmer's Hoot Tube by H.S. Strut. Sounds extremely realistic.

Man they may not sound right but they rip a gooble out of a turkey. I have a pro mag owl, and a Hoot flute, the pro Mag really doesn't sound that bad, but my go to is still the hoot flute. It sounds awful but it works.

i use my mouth to but have also used HS strauts hoot tube and works well but the primos one may not sound like much but there has been times where i couldn't get the birds to gobble until i used it so i wouldn't give up on it.

Funny that you should say that because I was shown by Big Sean Hammock how to do a owl locator call on a duck call. The Primos Owl call is basically a duck call with a really small insert that is confined. I just use my duck call and use a little bit of hand work! It sounds great! biggrin.gif

My owl hoot is by HS Strutt,but the one I have is about 10 years old and last year I went to check out a new one ,looking for the same call,and the one I found by them now has two holes in it now instead of one and it doesn't sound like the old one ,but I bought it and found this out,so needless to say I still use my old one!It is a brown colored barrel call with a stem coming off it,the new one os the same shape but black,with a hole in the bottom that you have to cover with a finger ,but I do not know why it is there,or what the purpose is for it!

I agree on the palmer hoot tube it is the best one Ive used or heard.

Couldn't agree more. I use both the HS Strut hoot flute (old one with only one hole) and the Palmer's Hoot Tube.

I do think that the Primos power crow is the best crow call.

I do most of my owling with mouth but the barred owl call I have from Knight & Hale is a great call!

So do all of you guys agree that the HS Strut Palmers Hoot Tube in Maple is the best Owl locator call?
