Postby jammer5673 » Thu Feb 09, 2006 9:56 pm

I am looking to buy some calls and I ran across these two. Are they any good or should I get another brand?

I dunno about the first one but I know about all the Duck Commander calls and they are good. The Brown Sugar is a good call and makes ducky sounds. It IS very quiet, I add it on my lanyard so I can work the real close ducks without fear of getting too loud. The only problem is mine sticks sometimes, if you have that problem just email the duck commander and theyll send you free replacment reeds, I havent had the chance to see if it helps or not. Hope that helps.

I think duk calls are like fishing lures if u have the confendence that it will work then you will put the effort into it to make it work. Remember :smile: practice means i kill more than you.

The calls are ok. The power maximus goose call runs for about 30 dollars and the brown sugar is about 20. They are decent calls but i wouldnt buy them.

i would say, the best starter call of all is.......

Buck Gardner's Double Nasty II,

forgiveness of a double reed, with the range and versatility of a single, this call is great for beginners as well as experenced callers

Because I took DuckCrazy's wise advise on this call a couple months ago I can now say :withstupid: and another good one is the Haydel DR-85. :smile:
I'm not as good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was.

Tall timber II and Quackhead J-frame are both great calls for the money. Dbl. nasty II is good also, but I would stay with the single reed.

You don't want that Zink PM-1 IMO. I tried one and didn't care for it at all. Canada Hammer better, and if you want a real nice short reed goose call for not much pick up a goozilla on e-bay. I just got one for about $12 with shipping and it is the best poly call I have tried so far.
More ammo! I need to shoot something!
