    Wondering how much Hess calls, both duck and goose are going for these days. Figured you guys would be the best people to ask.

    I'm no expert, but depending on the material of your call and it's condition I would guess that $400 is a rough starting point.

    Crazy what some folks think is collectable, Back in the day when I did a lot of ebay hunting for fishing lures it was insane what trend got some folks throwing money away on lures. Japanese buyers were the strangest lot of them all. A new 5.00 bait with a stupid paint blemish had those folks bidding away like it was the crown jewels.

    I would think a Hess Goose Call with a Hess hat and a Hess Punkinseed lure would bring a fortune. Sold separately maybe two fortunes:cool:

    I think I might have a Hess hat somewhere? The last time I saw it was sitting beside a matching blue pearl goose/duck call set! :scratch Dang now I gotta find that hat!!!!!

    Does it have the cassette tape of Hess blowing the call? I know he did that with some of his calls.

    I've got a couple lures, wouldn't mind another if someone's willing to take my cash :cool:

    A member said he was gonna give me a Hess hat but I guess forgot and I didn't want to be an azzhat and ask for it.

    Did have a gent offer to sell me a hat , but $75 wasn't worth it IMHO

    Never heard of a cassette tape, that's cool.


    Plainer Hess calls would be less than I mentioned above, or one with some wear or imperfections.
