The Smack Down talks all kinds of smack - soft purrs, clucks, tree yelps, or loud cutting and excited yelps. This new black blended latex is awesome. This call features 3 latex reeds and a half and half cut.

1. Place the call carefully against the roof of your mouth keeping the longer reed on top and facing out.
2. ALWAYS exhale air, NEVER inhale air through mouth. Hold in place by applying pressure with the back or middle of tongue. DO NOT PLACE TOO FAR BACK AS CHOKING MAY RESULT.
3. While holding call in place with tongue, exhale gradually and drop your jaw as you exhale. Vary the configuration of your mouth and rhythm in which you drop your jaw to achieve the desired sounds.
TIPS: To achieve a higher note, apply more tongue pressure to the call. It may help to associate words to the desired call. For example, use the words "chick" or "chuck" for a yelp, the word "pick" works well for a cluck, and the word "pack", blown with more pressure, produces a good cutting sound. To create the sound of a purr, try fluttering your tongue across the latex reeds.
