MAD Hyper Growl Deer Call
Best sounding call on the market!!
I was truly shocked when I saw the 2 bad reviews. I've gotten mine wet from practicing and it works fine. You definitely got a dud there Livereater.
The sound coming out of the Hyper Growl is so realistic, it's unbelievable. If you've ever heard a deer grunt in the woods, this is as close as you'll get to replicating that sound.
I just bought it last week and already called a decent 8 point 15 yards from my stand... Wasn't a shooter though.
You have to blow a little harder than most call due to the Hyper-Ventilator, which is basically a replica of a buck’s sinus cavities. Whoever designed this call knows what they're doing.
It DOES take a little practice ... Be sure to watch the instructional DVD. The DVD also has great footage of the Drury boys hunting a MONSTER 9 year old buck named Chiquita that they've been trying to harvest for years... Really cool stuff.
I plan on calling this big boy during the rut---->
At least give it a try, you can always take it back.

Reed seems to freeze
I really like the concept of this call but it doesn't hold up to the expectations I had for it. After a good snort wheeze the reed is frozen and the next time you try to use the grunt it comes out a super high pitch squeal and there is no way to get it back to normal besides blowing into it and most likely scaring every deer within ears reach away. After one or two high pitch squeals it becomes a nice throaty grunt again but not worth it. After many hours of trying to find different ways to blow into it to avoid this, and 2 times out in the field it became the most expensive dust collector I have.

This call is absolutely incredible. It is much louder than the original "Buck Growl". I didn't know about the combination of the wheeze and the grunt but it is cool.
I loved the original instructional video for the Growl but was bummed that the call couldn't come close to duplicating the sounds that were caught on film. It couldn't handle a fraction of the air this new call can. This video rocks and the call can exactly duplicate all of the actual sounds.
We will see how it performs in the woods.

Looks good, sounds bad...
I've been using MAD Calls for a long time, and this has to be the worst call in their line. The sound is to high pitch, it sounds like a party whistle, and it takes to much air to roll over. When the call works, I cant get the deep guttural tones of a mature buck, or the subtle pops, clicks, and grunts from the original Buck Growl. I thought this was to be an improvement on an already great call. I guess this is what happens when you keep fixing something until its broke.
