Mallard Duck Call recommendations?

Postby garza7585 » Mon Oct 14, 2013 6:41 pm

Lares T1 or Hybrid... Or RNT Short Barrel or Daisy Cutter... For single reeds.

They run 135-142 but if you keep your eyes on the classifieds they can be had for much less.

For a double reed, I'm pretty crazy about the Lynch Mob Jezebel which I believe is about 125.

Hope that helps.

It depends what you're looking for in the call. For a good ol meat call that's got a lot of duck in it, I'd go with a Ducklander Loud Timber. They run right at $100 for acrylic.

I just ordered a Ducklander Sinner after reading another thread on this forum.

Buy the duck commander triple threat. Its only 40 dollars but sounds amazing. THeyre all hand tuned by Jase Robertson so they all sound great. Its easy to blow and you can get a lot of variation from it.

Don't order a call cause someone else likes it. If u hunt in freezing temps a single reed is the only way to go and that is a fact Jack. The only people that will disagree are the ones that cant run a single. I run a rnt dc and field proven shot caller. I tend to prefer the skinny longer calls.

The biggest selling calls are the ones with the biggest AD budgets, as other call makes go out of business everyday. Many inexpensive calls are just as good as the much hyped expensive calls. There is no reason to pay 130 for eye and brag candy.

Gander Valley Calls The Homewrecker or the XTC. Both are serious calls, that run easy and have great range. I have tried a ton of calls and these are the standouts by FAR!!
