Just saw a couple of Circe wood calls listed on eBay if anybody collects or calls retro.

How much? A Circe jackrabbit was the first call I ever owned and I still got it. Kinda chewed up, I tend to nibble on a wood call on stand. I don't need to sell it, just wondered?

Good hunting. El Bee

Without going back in, I think that the bid on one was a little more than $20 and a little less than $30 for the other one.
Condition looked to be decent. Not great but with a readable decal.

Well, if the call has a readable decal, would be somebody that didn't hunt much, kept his calls in the original box.... like Victor?

My call is so beat up, you would think the dog got a hold of it. It don't matter what it looks like. And, tuning a closed reed call seems to be a class that most people skipped? But, a sharp knife dragged mostly along the side edges, trial and error will produce sounds that appeal to the hunter, if not the prey, necessarily.

By that, I mean, for those that have actually heard a dying jackrabbit, it's a little different from the recorded sounds available of somebody blowing a hand call. And, there is nothing wrong with that. Dramatic and ungenuine sound is just as effective as a live recording, depending on the local audience.

Anyway, I will keep mine....I know it's in one of two places around here and not in the pocket of some mismatched camo.

Speaking of which; anybody notice that it's getting harder and harder to find genuine latex gloves for reeds for their Higgins call? I never realized that so many people were sensitive to powder? But anyway, the stuff they use for surgical gloves today really don't cut the mustard sliced up for the Higgins call. How much can I get for one of those beauties, by the way? I guess the design is retired, by now? Anybody hearing from rich, lately? I ain't, in a coon's age?

Good hunting. El Bee
