This call comes in 3 sizes, small, medium and large. The small horn is great to carry around your neck and is good at short range. The medium horn could be carry on a lanyard but it is a little more difficult. The large horn is for long range calling or in windy conditions. I have the medium horn and it is a well made call with a different tone than other howlers made out of plastic, wood or metal. I think that this call sound great with little effort. It can also make the hurt coyote sound very well and with considerable volume. I had a chance to talk with the owner/maker of Silver dog howlers and he is extremely helpful if you want some help learning how to blow your call. I couldn't have asked for better customer service.
