I use this.

I used this, and absolutely loved it.  However it got caught in my bow string when I shot a bull.  Totally wrenched my neck and arrow only penetrated about 4 inches on a 7 yard shot coming out of an 80# bow.   I now wear absolutely nothing around my neck.  I only buy hunting shirts with the little zipped chest pocket, and also have one of those little clips on my chest strap that holds a single diaphragm.   :twocents:

I have used both BB and phelps. I prefer the BB it is easier to get calls in and out. Probably the main drawback to the phelps. I actually prefer the phelps design with the net style back so calls can dry. And it rides nice on a backpack strap. But the small opening make it hard for my clumsy fingers to grab the right call.  I carry the BB in a pants pocket and loop the lanyard through a belt loop to prevent accidental loss. Just flip open the top and i can easily look at all my options and grab the one i want.

You guys must be getting a lot at elk camp to need multiple diaphragms. Just saying. And, they usually come with their own carrying case. When do you get time to hunt?

 :yike: I always have an external reed cow call, my reed pouch, and a grunt tube around my neck in some fashion... time to look for alternative ways to carry stuff I suppose, that sounds scary.

I got this idea from Ole Phantom16 AKA Wapititalk1.

I carry at least 2, usually with a backup or two.  I use a Plastic round "tin" I keep in a front pocket of hunting pants.

I got my tins from buying Jacklinks Jerky chew.  You can find the stuff at local convenience store, sporting good store.  Some actual true tobaco chew I think can be found in plastic containers as well.  Avoid the cardboard/paper tins, stay plastic as it will no absorb flavors or moisture (from original contents or when using calls or rain here in PNW)
This is the bulk pack to give you an idea of the containers I am talking about.
https://www.amazon.com/Jack-Links-Original-Flavor-0-32-oz/dp/B00J8DQ90U

I then cut a bunch of paper towels to fit and separate the calls and absorb moisture during use.  I have two tins, one I carry with me in pocket and a backup at camp in case I lose my primary during the day.

FYI - make sure at the end of the season you pull all the calls out of the tin and let them and the tin air dry for a few days before you store in offseason.  Also throw away the papertowels and make new ones.  You will not like what you find when you pull the calls out in the spring to start practicing again...  I speak from experience. :puke:

Just saw this thread.  Yep, as lamrith mentioned, a plastic container, lined with circular cut paper towels, works and works well.  I've used this method for many, many years.  The container I have is an old Federal .22 container (betcha some of you old timers remember these).

I use an empty can of dip. Years ago I bought a can of Skoal when the gas station was out of Cope  >:( turns out the empty plastic can works great for a reed container. +5yrs and still holding up!
