putting a lanyard together

Postby h20fouler » Wed Oct 02, 2013 12:53 pm

So I have been hunting for about 10 years now and I never really tried to learn to call because other people were really good and there wasn't really a need for it. Last year I really worked on learning to call and as of now I would give myself a 3/5. I have been using an old call my dad gave me that has no markings and is pretty worn out. I replaced the cork and reed before I started using it but I would really like to get some better calls.

I know they won't make me the best caller in the world, but you can't win a race driving a beater. What would yall suggest I fill my lanyard with. I want a goose call, preferably under $75 but I was wondering if it really helps to have two mallard calls; one loud call to get their attention and one softer call for close working. I hunt lake shore, marsh, and farm ponds if that helps. I am not looking for beginning calls like a quackhead or dr-85 either. Lastly I would like to stay under $100 per call.

Give basin calls a look. They make few good duck calls for under $100. I got the double take and really like mine.

I like lares,ccc, and ducklander. For 100 and under you can't beat ducklander. As for two different calls I just commented on another post about getting good with one call to do everything. Probably a little tougher than getting a high ball and a quiet double reed but when you can keep on the same call start to finish its worth the work.

You can get most of the higher end calls used for under a 100

I use an echo diamond wood double reed. Usually wasn't a fan of double reeds but my brother got it for me for Christmas and I really like it. It's pretty versatile as well. I hunt mostly fields but I have used it in timber and it works great. But I always recommend blowing a call before you buy and see what you like best. Good luck!
