I ordered a Commited Custom Call yesterday based on this thread and others on this site. I will let you know about the call when I get it but I am expecting it to be great call. I will say his customer service is top notch. :thumbsup:

FOWL FOOLER BY CAPT CHARLEY... got mine in 97 and it has been on my lanyard ever since, nothing fancy,i think its their basic model, I bought it from capt charley himself at the shot show that year.

Thomas Duck Calls- fairly old Texas call co., the double reed model is great on lakesand one of the best sounding calls ive heard. they have a website and u can sometimes find the older ones on ebay as well as other thomas game calls.

Old school call....

mine's a old HERB PARSONS.

Many people may not have heard about "Ralph Jenzen hand crafted duck calls" ( his woodworking shop is Masters Touch, out of Wilmington, NC). One of his "donated Duck Calls to DU" a few years back went for $ 1,235 which was a record for a DU duck call auction...it had carved a dog carring a duck into one of his calls. He's been featured in GARDEN AND GUN and other coastal magazines over the years
Mr. Nash, he had me take out a Mr. Money from England, who was "De' Shooingest Gent'man" I'd ever did meet! ***Check out [Joe Guide YOU TUBE hunting Videos]***

Wow, believe it or not I just read this whole thread :smile:

I've owned, (and still use), the same duck call since 1983-
A simple $9.95 old single reed Olt #66.

Just so you'll know this ain't some older fart on a feeble attempt to pass on some useless same 'ole, same ole' duck calling "wisdom" to a younger set of ears, ( that sometimes close quickly), so would have to agree that spit runs thicker than water, and most duck calls can/and will stick on ya'.

After having the opportunity to spend some time with some of the younger generation of 'Duckers,(who have one of each size and shape duckcall made) I can't help to conclude, and share something that I've definately noticed-

Seems the younger generation has the belief that a duckcall is the MAIN STAPLE that'll bring a duck into shotgun range. And while it's obvious that a duck call is good and important..When a circling flock of Mallards that's interested in your spread , I've noticed the constant blowing of the call continues while and long after the flock has their wings set and have commited.

Well, I guess it's time for that feeble attempt and "the point" :yes:

If some guys would start using their duckcall as a duckcall and not as an instrument that needs to be blown from the time ducks are first seen, which sometimes are little dots in the sky a mile away, (and you're blowing the call right into a 30knot. wind)) to the time they're, (hopefully floatin' in the decoys or FLARE from it), you may not have so much spit inside of it, and less problems....Some folks constantly blow and blow, and blow, (and sound like a duck farting in a tin pan)

To each his own-
But I swear:

Less is best
..and I can still count on one hand the amount times my duckcall has stuck on me. If you get the vocally "important stuff" out of your duckcall from the git go, there's no need to do a whole lot of "convincing" when they're 50yds. away :wink:

Check out Delta Waterfowl Supplies. The owner is a avid hunter that spent years buying call after call looking for that one great call. After trying all the rest he decided to make his own calls and has put out some great sounding calls. All his calls are hand tuned and the people that are blowing the calls have been very satisfied. This is the first year he's selling his calls online and to get his calls out there he is offering great deals on quality calls. Check it out at deltacalls.com
