The new Power Hen by Zink Calls is a compact, hybrid-style box call made from select cherry and maple in a traditional design using modern technology and hand-built construction.

The double-sided design of the sound chamber produces different tones to emulate multiple hens while providing maximum utility and convenience.
The new Power Hen Hybrid retails for about $79.99. Learn more at zinkcalls.com.
