Down-N-Dirty Releases Mayhem And Mayhem XT

LEWISBURG, Ky. (July 25, 2011) – Down-N-Dirty Outdoors, the maker of high-quality handcrafted turkey and waterfowl calls, is proud to introduce its two new goose calls: the Mayhem and the Mayhem XT. Designed and made from the finest materials by DND champion callers and craftsman, these two new goose calls produce the widest range of natural sounds imaginable.

The Mayhem is a short-reed call that was developed from years of hunting public land and heavily pressured private clubs. Designed with an aggressive open bore and “worn-in guts,” the Mayhem is able to reach out and get geese’s attention and then coax them in for the final approach. The open-bore design of the Mayhem allows the hunter to use less backpressure to achieve the necessary sounds, from the top-end all the way to the bottom. The Mayhem is so versatile, when the birds get close, you can easily manage the call with just one hand.

The Mayhem XT is the Mayhem on steroids. If you are looking for that “old school” sound, this is your call. With a bigger bore and longer keg design, the Mayhem XT offers the caller the deep, low-end sound of the calls of yesterday. This call is designed with the same “worn-in” guts used on all DND goose calls, giving the hunter the ability to keep up with high-gliding migrators as well as finishing the job all the way down to the spread.

These goose calls use guts molded from a call that has been worn-in from more than five years of extensive use in the field. As the reed of that original call slapped the tone board, over time, it actually cut grooves in the edges of the board. This constant wear on the tone board produced an easier running call because the reed was able to flex much more easily. Using those worn-in guts as the mold for the Mayhem and the Mayhem XT, DND created a pair of calls that run smoother, take less air and allow the user to get the full range of sound from top end all the way down to the low moans and growls. Both calls have been field tested by the DND Pro Staff team for two years. From the Northwest to the Mississippi River bottoms, they have proven that they won’t let you down.

“Goose calling can be difficult because geese are smart birds, and if they hear one sound they don’t like, they’re gone,” said DND president Mark Coin. “Fortunately, with the new Mayhem and Mayhem XT calls, even if you are new to goose calling, you can quickly learn to accurately mimic the sounds of the goose with surprisingly little practice.

“We have exhaustively tested preproduction versions of the Mayhem and the Mayhem XT for thousands of hours of working birds, and we’re convinced that they can truly talk to the geese,” Coin added. “Our body counts have confirmed it. We would not put our name on these calls and launch them unless we thought they were perfect. I believe that you would’ve had to have been hatched from a Canada goose egg to create a sound as convincing. We’re very excited to bring them to the marketplace now.”

The Mayhem and the Mayhem XT will be available in September with retail prices of $131.99, each. Specially selected translucent colors will also be available. With either of the new Mayhem calls, DND can bring the geese in for you. Getting them on the ground-well, that part’s up to you.

Flextone® Game Calls Bone Collector™ Buck Crusher

New Roads, LA (June 2011) – Flextone Game Calls, the industry leader in natural game sounds announces the Bone Collector Series, Buck Crusher.

Flextone teamed up with Michael Waddell to develop an all-in-one call, with INSANE volume and natural sounds, which straps conveniently to your wrist for minimal movement and hands-free operation. The Buck Crusher has 3 different ports allowing the hunter to create buck grunts, snort wheezes, doe estrus bleats and doe grunts to help draw in that buck of a lifetime. The Buck Crusher was designed allowing a bowhunter to use the call at full draw and is loud enough to be heard at long distances while gun hunting.

MSRP is $17.99.

About Flextone: In late 1997, Tom Wiley, an avid duck hunter, decided to test some leftover surgical tubing that he used while working as a nurse to create a duck call. Everyone that heard this call were impressed at how the flexible tubing gave a truer, more natural sound by more accurately mimicking the soft, flexible tissue of an animal’s neck and tongue. From there, Flextone Game Calls was born and today the products have grown from a spare room in Wiley’s home to being distributed nationally from a warehouse in New Roads, Louisiana. The Flextone line has grown from just a few duck calls to over 100 products and gear for all types of hunting. These products can be found in nearly 1,000 stores across the country.

For Fall Turkey Hunting Success, Get Down-N-Dirty

Lewisburg, KY—Fall turkey hunting can be as exciting as spring turkey season, but it certainly takes different technique and a lot of patience. Gobblers are not gobbling to mate at this time of year, but with some scouting and persistence, the birds can be put into a pattern, and your pay off can be great.

According to champion caller and co-owner of Down-N-Dirty Outdoors game calls, Jason Kidd, “By far, one of my favorite and one of the most effective ways to hunt turkeys in the fall is by scattering a flock and calling them back.

First, you locate a flock, and get into a position where you can effectively scatter it,” Kidd continued. “Keep in mind, that for this tactic to work, you have to scatter the birds in all different directions. This means you have to get relatively close to the flock before you scare them off. Within about 20 minutes of scattering the flock, the woods will come alive with turkey sounds-yelps, kee-kees, cutting and cackles. This is when the stage is yours to put on a show.

I like to yelp and kee-kee on a mouth call, and I even do some yelping and clucks at the same time on a friction call. Keep in mind that you want to command your presence and lead this show. The DND Arsenic three-reed mouth call from the Poison Series has long been my go-to for fall turkey hunting. It has the traditional cutter style cut with a small slash in the back that gives it a pitch that is pure turkey. It gives me a nice clear kee-kee followed up with some high-pitched raspy yelps.

Simultaneously, I will be yelping, clucking or cutting on the DND Soul Crusher Slate call. Personally, I like the slate call because it is more forgiving.”

Fall turkey hunting is not only an opportunity to harvest a great bird, but also a time to really listen and learn from the turkey. Not as many hunters flock to the woods for turkey this time of year, so the competition from fellow hunters is less. Enjoy this time-get out there, and get Down-N-Dirty with some birds this fall.

Through their experience and determination, Down-N-Dirty Outdoors has come to offer hunters the most advanced line of game calls available today. From the unique-looking diaphragms to the exceptionally designed pot calls, the entire line is built by hand with one goal in mind: to create the finest quality, affordable game calls that absolutely mimic your prey.

There are no gimmicks; no pretty faces; no bull. The calls from Down-N-Dirty Outdoors are just the finest calls available on the market today, and they will make you a more successful hunter now and in the years to come.

Knight and Hale’s The Shaft Predator Call: Small but Deadly!

Decatur, AL- Nearly every deer hunter, particularly bow hunters, has had a coyote ruin a day’s hunt while in the stand. If they only had a small predator call to bring the villain within bow range, they could end the mischief. Knight and Hale predator pro, Bob Severe, created the answer…The Shaft.

The Shaft predator call was designed to fill the need of a small predator call to carry while deer hunting, but also works as a coaxer call for the serious predator caller. Bob took several ideas that he has seen in this 30+ years of predator calling to create The Shaft. It is made from an arrow shaft, arrow nock and cottontail reed. With the total overall length of just under 5″, this call fits nicely into your shirt or jacket pocket with ease. We even include a metal shirt clip, so you won’t lose this little gem out in the woods!

Bob Says, “The Shaft was designed for close distance calling, but it is the best coaxer call on the market. When a coyote is coming in from long distance, The Shaft helps close the deal! The last 400 yards is where this call performs the best.” Knight and Hale sell The Shaft alone (suggested retail $9.99) or in a deer combo pack with the ever popular EZ Grunter Plus WIP deer call (suggested retail $19.99).

On your next trip to the woods, give a predator The Shaft! For more information, go to www.knightandhale.com or call 1-800-500-yelp.
