Out of all the calls in my arsenal, this is by far the one that I reach for first. I purchased this call 2 years ago and have never had a problem with it. I have used it bow hunting in September, but also in 0 degree weather in December and its never caused me any problems. I've called in numerous deer with the grunt part of the call, and the buck that I harvested this past fall I called in with the snort-wheeze. This is a very easy call to blow right out of the package and I was very happy with my investment. I would recommend this call to anybody looking for a good, affordable grunt call.
