New Duck Hunter Advice on Call

Postby GMan601 » Fri Nov 29, 2013 6:35 pm

OK - Ive been once this year - It was pretty fun looking to start calling myself
What is a good all around sounding call or calls to get for ducks? Do I need to start with a single reed? I plan on hunting timber and open fields - thx in advance :fingerhead:

Alot of options to be honest. But here are my thoughts.
First buy 1 quality single reed duck call (A quality call will make the sounds your looking for as you grow as a caller. And yes contrary to some a quality call makes a difference) Second go to Carlson Championship Calls and buy the Calling A-Z cd and stick with it.

IF you follow the above recommendations and practice you will learn to blow a call anywhere. This DOES NOT mean your gonna call birds in as reading birds takes time in the field to learn. But being able to hit them with quality sounds will help shorten the learning curve.

Good Luck

You need to find the call that fits you and there is no easy answer for this. Get ready to waste some money.

Here's another idea: Drive to Stuttgart, AR and go to RNT during business hours. Go to the display case and try every call. The man behind the sliding glass window tuning calls is Butch Richenback. He will help you find the call that fits you. When it needs tuning, just send it in and for a small fee, they will tune it.

I would strongly suggest sending a Pm to the first guy that responded to you. He makes some of the best sounding and lookin calls you'll find hands down.
