    Buttolo call: Useless after being soaked by rain.

    I was caught by a very heavy shower last Thursday evening and got soaking wet. Going out again yesterday evening I found my Buttolo call seems to have been damaged by the rain, as it produced basically no sound at all now. So just a word of warning to keep that caller dry!

    Have you checked it out for leaf debris / vegetable matter?

    I would have put it in the bracket of common scene to be honest....

    In my post there was a hint to take it apart and dry it out as there is a reed mechanism in side...
    One would hope the owner with a centre fire rifle out stalking deer would have some inclining to work that out...As I would guess he would be unzipping the deer and checking it out which is far more involved than drying out a reed caller..........

    Why not just leave it in the airing cupboard over night ?

    As always some brilliant and entertaining contributions to this post, thank you! Gosh, no, I had not considered drying it out, what a super idea!

    Pop it in a bag of dry rice to remove any/all moisture. This generally works with damp mobile phones also.

    Or use it as an excuse to buy an Hubertus Cherry Wood.
