Hey HunterX - You asked about the duckiest call. I turn duck calls from exotic woods (cocobolo, purpleheart, bloodwood & Brazilian mahogany). I'm convinced that it's these hardwoods that give the calls their rich tone. Each call is individually turned on my lathe...not duplicated. I buy the reeds, but I had them checked out by a pro caller that works for GameMasters in Quincy, IL. He has said that my calls are some of the duckiest he's ever heard. He said they sounded as good as the big-name commercial calls they sell at his GameMasters store, but mine are more attractive and a LOT less expensive. My calls are $45 except for the Cocobolo, which are $50 (including shipping). I live just outside Springfield, IL. By the way, I also make goose calls and deer grunts. So far this year, I've sold several dozen calls just by word of mouth. Folks have been real happy with the way they sound. I've also sold some calls to American Sports in Havana, IL. I can email pictures for you to see them. If you're interested, drop me a line at rayndj@mchsi.com. Also, please pass the word to your friends. Thanks, Ray

My personal favorite is the Rowdy DOA double trouble tuned as a single.

I also like the Lares T-1 and H.S. Ringer 2, and The daizy cutter for realistic bottom end duck.

realistically, a good caller can make any call sound "ducky" there are calls(mainly double reeds), that will regularly sound ducky over other calls(singles). But this is because a double reed is tuned to make that ducky sound and only that one ducky sound, theres no variability. Which can be a bad thing when ducks dont really want to hear that one and only sound and you get stuck in a rut.
But a good caller, who has excellent air control can make his call sound just about anyway he wants it to. whether it be ducky, clean, raspy, or somewhat of both. its all about air control and the right amount of voice.

wood or acrylic

What do most duck hunters prefer, all wood single plastic reed, all wood double plastic reed? Do they prefer wood or acrylic calls.

i would say those who are after a more natural sound, "ducky" sound, would go with wood (single or double, double would be even more ducky)

though acrylic has a good sound to it as well. its got a higher pitch on it. some guys prefer that.

and, this is just my opinion, but a new acrylic is just as purty as a wood. i know many of yall might disagree, but thats how i feel

For me I like to buy wood calls they sound great around the house some times they change in the cold so I find myself with acrylic on my lanyard more and more. Some of the timber calls in acrylic I think are every bit as soft and realistic duck sounding but consistant in tone. I still love the wood calls I own many and think the artistic beauty of a hand turned wood call by a true master of the trade is priceless.
