I've distilled my two or three years experience (it's not much so take it for what it's worth) to a realization that I'd rather have a good cow call that I am comfortable with than a bugle call... but since I can never resist throwing a few bugles out there I like the flexibility of a mouth reed. I currently use Primos. My favorite is the red Imperial Reed, which fits my mouth nicely and I feel I can be pretty convincing with both bull and cow sounds.

Reed all the way!
Soft cow calling---most effective.

Tl23, you must have drawn one of the expo permits?

There is another UWN member that drew this permit as-well---;-)
I hope she harvest's the biggest FL bull of all...

While there are certainly times a good bugle is worth it, I typically only use them to locate and then try and work a bull after that with cow calls. My typical bugle is a squeal that a young spike or satellite bull would make, and just about any bugle out there will do that. I want the bull i'm talking to to think he can walk right over and kick the living sheesh out of his competitor.

For all elk calls, I am a fan of Primos. Pick up one of their "mastering the art," videos for calling elk and have a wonderful hunt!

For cow calls, I really like the ivory plate single (diaphragm) and the hyper lip single. For a bugle, I really like the new bullet bugle.

+1 about what goofy said about soft cow calling.

I no all those little towns it's got a spot in my heart also I just love the country down there! And that's the plan I'm gonna spend a lot of money this year with going down there every other weekend at least trying to find the biggest baddest bull! It should be a neat experience

I really like the Flextone formerly Abe and Sons "Dominator", and a variety of cow calls. My favorite cow call being Carlton's Figh'n Cow.

Good luck on the Fishlake tag. I had the early season any weapon tag last year. Great unit and lots of bulls.

I really like the Primos mini domes. The small size just makes them so easy to use. I usually have to cut other call down to size. Fantastic bugles and real easy to make sweet cow sounds.
