Because of your videos, Jimi (My Son) is a certified Goose Caller. He works the shoreman express pretty good. I took him out on the last day of 2008 season as a early 4th birthday present and he ( like most of us) was hooked.
I met Chris last month and we had a great time and learned a lot. I have some pic’s I wanted to share with Sean, I thought he would get a kick out of seeing Jimi working his calls.
Love all of your products and will be looking to place more orders soon,
Hi my name is Linwood Brogden. I live in Frederick, Maryland. I would like to thank you for being a 2009 sponsor for the Youth Field Day held on June 13th. My family had to leave early and I was not there for the door prize but thanks any way for everything you did. I had a great time.
Dear Sean Mann,
My name is Randal Nelson, I live on Kent Island on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and I am 17. I enjoy living in the goose hunting capitol of the world. I know you also live on the Eastern Shore. I have been blowing duck calls for three years and goose calls for one. My second duck call was your express, Arkansas style. I really like that call. Unfortunately, I left it in the blind one night and never did find it.
I recently watched your “Family Tradition” DVD. It was so neat. I also recently learned how to make waterfowl stuffers and have opened a taxidermy shop on my friends’ farm. I learned how to make stuffers from a guy on your field staff, Bill Quade. He is a really nice guy and he told me a lot about you. I also know Wayne Bart, he lives in Trappe. He told me he knew your father when he had an idea to open up his first gun shop.
I consider you my mentor and appreciate your great example as an ethical and supportive outdoorsman, as well as a God-fearing man. I am now saving to buy one of your duck calls and an Eastern Shoreman goose call. I would really appreciate it if you could send me a logo sticker to put in my taxidermy shop to spruce the place up. After I buy the calls I plan on mastering them then possibly attempting to join your field staff. That would be awesome!
Thanks again for your fine example,
R & L Taxidermy
I recently ordered 3 Wing Nutz Duck Calls for my sons and me. A month or two ago, we ordered some goose calls, a few of which were camouflage. My boys and I are wondering when, and if, you anticipate offering camo Wing Nutz Duck Calls? We have thoroughly enjoyed (and have had great success) with the goose calls. Therefore, we anticipate similar results with your duck calls.
My sons and I are avid (or, should I say, RABID) waterfowlers, and we are highly impressed with your unique and incredibly effective goose calls.. We can't wait to receive our new duck calls. I just wanted to take the time to let you know how awesome your products are, and we eagerly await purchasing camo Wing Nutz duck calls, as soon as you offer them...
I was lucky enough to be able to spend a considerable amount of time at your stand at the Northeast expo in Harrisburg, PA today. I just wanted to write you and let you know that your staff were some of the most knowledgeable, friendly and the most willing and eager to help out of anyone at the event. The two staff members that helped my friend and I were Scott Christopher and Rob Kenyon. They went above and beyond to make sure we got all the help we needed (which was a lot) and all of our questions were answered. Made my first Sean Mann purchase which was the sweet talker goose call and the double trouble duck call. I don't think I will ever use another company after the service and help. Thanks
Well I think I got it down now. When you have a Patternmaster on your gun and some kent #1 in the chamber and a Sean Mann Express White Out
on your lanyard with 500 decoys out and a Sean Man flag in the other hand
you have all the right tools to a good day. Then you look off in the distance and you see thousands of snows. You start calling and flagging. Then comes the moment three hundred or so brake off coming right at you. Time slows down your heart is beating and you start talking to yourself in your head. The birds start to knot up. They are dipping and diving around and around. You tell yourself hold hold. One is on the ground then two, three, four……. You drop your call and yell out take them. You pull the trigger like you are doing some kind of Richard Simmons work out with your finger. You hear the sound of birds hitting the frozen ground… it sounds like sacks of potatoes falling from the sky. Then it happens - click. You reach for your ammo and get two more shells in allowing you to bag one more. We got 11 birds out of 3 shooters and two I would say putting out ground cover first timers. It was one of the coolest things I have ever seen.
Thanks for all of your help and hope to talk to you all soon.

Sean, A friend of ours set up a blind in our back yard and I finally got a goose here on our property. I loved it! I wish I could tell you that I called him in, but I still can't blow a goose call to save my life. Thank goodness the kids are pretty good at it so I know I will always have a guide! Kim
Dear Sean Mann
Thanks for making my Christmas Eve morning a morning I will never forget. You make Fantastic calls. I will never regret buying your goose call.
Thanks,Max in KS.
My son & I drove to Cabalas in Hamburg PA from New Freedom, PA. Met two of you staff - Dave & David. What a couple of great guys - you should be proud they are on your staff. We taked for quite a while about goose hunting and calling. Both were very informative & helpful with calling technique and setting decoys. They had a video which showed an aerial view of decoys - very, very enlightning. Thanks - Chuck King, New Freedom, PA.
Thought I would drop you a line on my Express "work"...Today, was an almost perfect day afield. For the first time, I was able to call in three flights of geese to my decoys. Hunting solo, I was very proud, that having followed instruction on the Sean Mann CD and practiced for much of my commutes to work, I connected with the geese and brought them in...I did say almost perfect, as I did not hit any geese I shot at, though I deem the day, a success. More time on the skeet range will make that next time out perfect.
Thank you for an excellent product, and while I did not fill the pot, I did add to my practical knowledge for future days afield.
All the Best,
My seven year old son has been given a few short reeds and has never blown real goose out of them. At Cabelas they let him blow an eastern Shoreman and he blew real goose the first time. I purchased one for him and he is calling at the geese every night he has a chance. The ease of this call to blow has given him the fever.THANKS!!!!!
I just wanted to let you know what great products you put out. I recently bought the "white out" SS snow goose call and the "calling snows and specks" DVD with Chris Swift. The call was great right out of the box, sounded great and didn't require a champion caller to use. The DVD was great, instruction was informative, and it was awesome to learn both Mann's and Swift's different styles. I'll be buying a couple more calls from you soon to round out my call lanyard. Thanks again for the great product!
I just want to say thank you. I was stationed in Afghanistan in 04/05. A young sergeant came in the hooch and asked for me, some how he found out that I liked to hunt ducks and geese. He contacted you and a few other companies to send us some stuff to get our minds off work and to keep us in touch with home and something we loved to do. So about a month later we received some stuff from you. It was awesome; we all got a call, t-shirt, button up shirt, and stickers. I use the call all the time.[double trouble acrylic] I saved the sticker till my deployment was up and when I got home I put it on my truck. Well I traded that truck in on a new one and did not get the sticker back. So, my wife e-mailed you and you sent me another. This one was much bigger but I love it, and it’s on my truck today. My friends that I served with thank you for all the lovely noise I created while I practiced in the hooch. And I thank you. Thank you very much, your stuff helped.

My family has had the opportunity to hunt with Sean and Josh. The hunt with Sean was the first guided hunt we had ever been on. It was a Christmas present to my son Tyler and nephew Matt but secretly you could include my Dad and I as receiving the gift as well. Sean explained the X decoy set up to the young men using the Real Geese, had them help do it and school was open for them. After surviving Canadas landing on the pit and being mesmerized by his calling..we limited out in 50 minutes. Sean then took the time to sit around and talk to us like he knew us for 30 years. My son still has the tags Sean filled out for geese that morning. Sean Mann is a first class caller, teacher and best of all.. gentleman.
The hunt with Josh Neuwiller was more of the same. I believe if Josh researched his genealogy he would find PURE CANADA GOOSE in it. If I could call like one man it would be him on the Eastern Shoreman. Josh also treated us as old friends and whenever we meet up always has time to talk, teach and hangout.
The calls speak for themselves. World Championships galore, top workmanship and craftsmanship and sound quality that is second to none. Easily the best looking calls on the market. Sean has acquired a staff second to none. Josh, Keith, Kevin, and Scott always remember your name and have time to help in any way. For all of these reasons the Sean Mann Outdoors crew gets top billing and my families support. Thanks for the memories and friendships and we look forward to more hunting in the future.

Dear Sean Mann,
A few week’s ago in the mail I get this box. Inside was a well packaged call, initially the call seemed to be one of the best calls I would own. Upon the closests inspection the human can give I found that the call is aesthetically perfect. When I held it for the first time it fit right into the pocket of my hand as if it was made specifically for just me…
Then I awaited the let down. Now by no means am I some championship caller (not to take away from any of you that are) but I’m a meat caller (yes, to me there is a difference) However, I have been the guy at the camp that the others come to, to practice with, whether that’s good or bad I’ll leave up to you.
Anyways, there I went. Raised it up to my lips and with the first notes I blew what I felt is a long awaited kiss at all them little “duckies” high in the sky. I swear to you if any would have been flying by they would have circled the pool in the back yard…lol
Any how, I blow what turned out to be one of the best acrylic calls I have blown in years…YEARS, reminded me of an older Alvin Taylor I owned, just crisp, clear and I could manipulate the air perfectly…MAN!
Immediately I ripped a very expensive, handmade wooden call off the landyard and boxed up for eBay.
I asked and shopped around for about 8 to 13 good months for a good WORKING, GOOD LOOKING, DUCK KILLING CALL. What I got was a lot of good advice from many folks, some great customer service from the Mann Family. In the end I have one of the best calls, hands down that I ever spent my hard earned money on.
I had been let down time and time again with some other calls (no names needed) as well as other purchases throughout the years. I can honestly say that I have a great call now and am VERY proud of this product.
I suggest if your looking for a great call, look no further than ANY of the Mann products.. This Timber Talker XT is the BEST call I have owned to date! I tell you I had all but given up and was using the older calls of the 60’s and 70’s that were passed down to me as the “newer” calls were loosing something in their “massed produced / machined” era. It’s good to know that there are some call makers that still give a hoot about their calls, about the call customers, and more importantly about the QUALITY of their calls.
Thanks to the Mann’s,
I just wanted to thank you guys for your great service at the show. Can you make sure this gets to Dave? He took the time to change my hand position and some other things about my calling that instantly helped. He also showed what makes the Shorty different than the other calls I have used. Dave took care of me and had me try several calls until we found the one for me. Thank you Sean Mann Outdoors for making great calls that are very easy to use and thank you to Dave for helping me out like he did. It is truly appreciated.

Hey Scott I bought a flag from you last Monday during the expo in PA. Well I took it out this morning during the winter goose season here in New Jersey. I managed to get four geese out of my five goose limit. I went by myself, that was the only bad part. I was able to pull the geese from very good distances with the flag. Very little calling, just some flagging. There was a distinct reaction to them when they saw it moving. Thought I would share the efforts of my morning. You were right about this flag.
I wanted to drop you a quick note and tell as a hunter I use and believe in your calls they are the strongest most durable and most effective one on the market. If you doubt me. Just come over and see the drawer full of the calls that didn't make the cut.
I just purchased one of your duck calls. I have never been too good at calling, but it sure seems that the new calls make it a lot easier. The prices on the calls are great, and they quality is way above what I expected. I have been blowing them a lot, but can’t wait to actually use them out in the field.
Very Satisfied Customer
I received the duck call just about an hour a go and wow, it sounds great! Exactly what I was looking for. I didn't know a single reed could sound so good and be so easy to blow. Thanks so much for your patience and help getting this figured out. I will certaintly suggest to my duck hunting buddies to use your calls! Great company.
