In 2009 Hunter's Specialties introduced their innovative new Ring Zone technology to the world of turkey hunting. The Ring Zone calls were the result of extensive scientific testing about how turkeys hear and how the sound of a hen could be realistically reproduced in a call. The result was the Ring Zone call, a pan call with a ring around it that creates a resonance that faithfully reproduces the sound of a live hen turkey. Sounds produced by the call were the closest to a live hen ever reproduced as measured by a oscilloscope. Now for 2010 Hunter's Specialties has used the new technology to produce the Li'l Deuce Ring Zone. The Li'l Deuce resonates as the same specific frequencies of a turkey's optimal hearing range. It has been one of Hunter's Specialties most popular calls over the years and is a favorite of 5-time World Friction Calling Champion and H.S. pro staffer Matt Morrett.
The Li'l Deuce Ring Zone is small and compact enough to fit into a shirt pocket yet has plenty of volume to call in birds from a distance. It has a slightly higher pitch which turkeys can't resist.
The Li'l Deuce Ring Zone comes with a carbon striker.

If you are new to turkey hunting and looking for a starter slate call then I would start with this. Sure the all cherry or walnut slate calls are nice but if you're a beginner and you're not looking to spend to much to get started hunting for wild turkey then this is a good starting point.
This call is a quiet call. The ring zone produces great resonance but I have an old HS Camo Copperpot Glass call and that beast screams it's designed more for distance and windy days. If it's not to windy out and still early in the morning then the Lil' Deuce is a good call to break out and start working the gobblers off of the roost.
The Lil' Deuce Has a very authentic sound, not too raspy and a great pitch, not too high like a young hen or too low like an older hen.
Best thing about HS brand calls they always give you a great little instruction packet that gives you pointer/reminders for working your call.
If you buy this call make sure you look into getting a different kind of striker just so you can experiment and learn. Also, get the Primos slick stick as soon as possible. Best call conditioner out there period.

You are not going to find a better slate call for the money. It brought in a Tom within 5 yards.

Slate calls arent my forte, but it sounds OK. I couldnt get much out of it with the striker so I switched to rosewood. It cuts good but you have to apply a lot of pressure.
I will keep it in the vest and use it when my mouth call isnt firing 'em up!
Hard to beat the price though

Quality of call is marginal but the sound is pretty good. For the money I spent I am happy.

for the price and sound quality of this call you would be crazy to pass this up.
