I'd say 'water resistant' not water proof. I don't like the sound of that call personally.

I've found that the quick easy way to waterproof a box call is to carry it in a gallon zip lock bag.

I'd try out some friend's calls and see what sounds good. That little bit of coating on that call is not worth buying....IMO

Just my .02

I agree with Parker. My favorite box call maker is M L Lynch. A lot of lumber has been wasted on box calls over the years. If at all possible try to play the particular call you intend to buy.

At this point, I carry an H.S. Strut Field Champion "Natural". The reason I like this call is because it has a 'stopper' on it that keeps it from making any noise when not in use.

I only use box calls for locator cutting though. I prefer a slate and a mouth call for regular calling.

Get you a call that you like, and get after 'em! :cheers:

No wooden box call is waterproof, period. If the call absorbs any moisture at all it isn't gonna sound worth a hoot. I've tried these waterproof calls and they just don't have a good two note yelp to me. If you want something waterproof go for a glass or aluminum friction call with an acryllic or carbon striker. Or the ole standby a mouth yelper.
