    Default Green Monster Whistles?

    i have looked high and low for some green monsters. though i ordered some from lion country about a week or so ago and finally called them friday asking about them. the guy i talked to said they have not had any for months and not sure when they would get any in.

    Does anyone know where to get a couple or the story of why suppliers like lion country and gun dog puppy can't get any?

    The Dallesasse sounds exactly the same. Same whistle.

    May be the same whistle, but to me the sounds produced are noticeably different

    But does it matter to the dog? And at hunt test distances is it necessary? I think not. I prefer my dogs listening rather than waiting to be blasted out of their shoes.

    Ben, Daren is correct, the whistle portion is the same with a different body.
    I think the Green Monster is louder.
    They ain't making them anymore, maybe try an add in classifieds to buy a couple used ones.
    If the whistle is broken and the body is good, you can put in boiling water to separate them and glue a new whistle to an old body.

    Do a google search for Hellova Whistle. Not exactly the Green Monster but the same general principle and they come in both camo and orange versions. Good luck and good training to ye.

    If you just need to replace the whistle, and have a cover buy the ACME tornado from gun supply, remove the old whistle and pop in the replacement.

    Dallasee uses the same whistle as does the hunt tester; I don't like the sound of those to either, based on the number of green things I see hanging from peoples necks vs. blue things; I'd guess a lot of people don't. Looks like I'll be keeping my green covers.

    got an email for Pat Burns

    "Ben,

    I can’t help you right now. However, I am working on a new version and hope to have something in the not too distant future."

    not sure if this helps but the response i got back.

    and not looking for a replacement just looking for some backups and one for the hunting lanyard.

    The dallesasse would be fine for a backup, they make the short one the Hunt Tester which is what I have on my hunting lanyard.
