    I was recently perusing that other website and goshalmighty, I just about swallowed my gum at the prices some people are paying for calls. Nice calls to be sure but dang.

    It's a complete joke these days, even the straight up plain Jane hunting calls are insane.:yes:yes:yes

    I had a bunch of calls that I recently sold on that other site. I bought them used 6-7 years for nothing, seemed like nobody wanted these models. I sold them all for at least 4x what originally paid. Seems insane that people pay $300+ for a used call that cost $100 or less new.

    I can understand new comers buying up some low end calls just to get their collection started but paying outrageous prices for those low end calls just doesn't make sense. I watched a call that I paid $35.00 from the maker go for $250 and there was really nothing special about it (for a low end call it was a pretty good call). A call that was a good solid $400 call go for $675 only because of the maker I suppose. The last one I was looking at jumped $130 in the last 30 minutes but it was something that if anyone knew calls would have been all over, $200 would have been a solid purchase.
    I guess everyone has their reason to pay whatever they pay but I would say if I put one up, it would probably go for half of what it's worth.:doh

    Ah the Digger , I try not to play them but had to give that one a chance lol waffles have gone crazy , a lot of calls won’t sell for 300-400 or what ever and then waffle off for 500-600 bucks
