Just got my high voltage g overhauler in the mail and I'm speechless. Not only is it a great looking call but sound/functionality is second to none. I would like to sincerely thank you for making a outstanding call and thanks to hunter for recommending it. I'm fairly new to goose calling and hope one day I sound half as good as you guys , but with a product like this I'm sure my goal is obtainable. Please continue making great calls.

EQUIPMENT FOR SUCCESS
Many have asked what Hunter and I use to repeat successful hunts year after year. We shoot the BENELLI Black Eagle; use KICKS High Flyer Modified Chokes; use FEDERAL AMMO. The only clothing Hunter and I wear is NAT GEAR and DRAKE; comfortable and good looking! When it comes to decoys: our field is full of HIGDON, MOJO, AND SILLOSOCKS. For the Snow Geese hunts we use the e-caller: FOXPRO Prairie Blaster. You want a good hunt? Buy good tools. Have a great season!
Come On, Getcha Some!!
Friends of Tim

This Email is to say thank you. I received my DVD Conquer The Call shortly after Hunter emailed me in late July. I have been trying to fine a DVD to help me for years and I finely have, Thank You. I am very happy and pleased with this DVD. I love the options you give with the placement of your fingers and mouth. This gives you the options to make the calls the proper way. Thank you,

Hi Friends: I want to let everyone know about a new Canada Goose instruction Tutorial that I received yesterday from Tim Grounds. The name is "CONQUER THE CALL". The Goose Calling instruction features the ONE AND ONLY WORLD Champion goose caller, Tim Grounds.
This new 'state of the art' calling instruction will revolutionize the calling instructional video industry.
The CONQUER THE CALL is programmed into your computer, and saved for future practice, review, and reference.
This unique calling instruction tutorial allows one to watch, and listen to Tm Grounds present all of the proper goose calling techniques including the IMPORTANT and proper way to hold the goose call using 2 hands.
Then you blow your goose call into the microphone provided with the program and compare your calling with that of Tim Grounds on each of the different goose call sounds that Tim teaches, "as only Tim can do."
You then will receive a score on each of the different calls that you blow and your scores will be evaluated and saved for future reference.
Additionally, Tim provides information and instruction on goose call parts, assembly, goose decoys, decoy placement, flagging, and many other interesting and important successful and consistent Canada goose harvest hunting methods.
I was one of the first 100 people who was able to take advantage of the special introductory offer of 50% off the regular price of $49.99.
I would urge each of you to contact Tim Grounds ASAP at 618 983 5649 or go to
purchase one of these unique and excellent goose calling instructional programs. You won't regret it!
