We had our last hunt of the season this past weekend. The conditions were post-snow storm with winds shifting NW to S, barometer falling, temperatures rising from the mid-teens, and heavy overcast skies. Tenacious scouting by the group leader provided us the “X” spot for a late morning feed. Fifteen dozen decoys deployed on a disked corn field (socks, silhouettes, full-bodies, and shells). The Canadas we hunted were late-season educated birds that were call and decoy shy.
Earlier this year, after talking things over with Mr. Mann about the call I was in search of, we came to the determination that I was looking for an Express Shorty Goose Call. The Express Shorty is a short-reed goose call that packs a punch and is able to climb up and down the scale. We were able to call geese from great distances and work them in close with low-end murmurs. Sean was able to pre-tune my call prior to purchase. Side note – He actually answers the phone at his shop and gives you all the time that you need to discuss things over.
The actual hunting part of our trip lasted 45 minutes. We all harvested limits and were able to pick out the specific birds we wanted. This is significant because we knew that the birds were educated and had seen or heard it all by this point in the season. I believe that the call was an important aspect of our effective hunt. An added bonus, using this call is that you can flag in one hand and effectively call in the other.
If you are in search of a great call and outstanding personalized service; I would recommend that you contact Sean Mann.

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 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 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.

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,

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.

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 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!!!!!
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 son & I drove to Cabela’s 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 talked 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 enlightening. Thanks
