New to duck hunting but not calling. $80-$100 range?

Postby Ukcatshunter » Thu Jan 23, 2014 7:25 am

Hello ! I have never duck hunted but have used a few calls before. Long story but my parents never hunted so I just now have the ability to purchase equipment etc.

I had an RNT hunter that came with a CD. I also picked up the Basic Grammar DVD.

I'm am putting in for a few draw hunts next year and there is a WMA with a walk in area an hour away.

I am trying to outfit my first call lanyard. Since I will only be going 10-12 times a year not sure I need the high $ calls until I'm 100% sure I like duck hunting. I'm at about 95% now lol.

Here is what I have so far....

Duck whistle
Field Proven Poly Raptor goose

Looking at getting two duck calls. At least one single reed. Looking at an echo open water and a buck gardner reactor. I think I can get both around $70 or so a piece.

I second that. And a pure meat is a great call too.

Thanks guys. I'll look into the Echo Timber.

What would be a good more open water call to look at?

The breaker gets my vote for a more loud call. Plenty of volume and pretty good low end

2 calls on my laynard, echo timber coco and a hobo prime meat. The hobo imo is also a great call! I should say those were the only 2 until i got my bryce decker black monster la cut cutdown which is also an awesome call!

I started with a RNT Original. Love it.

I also bought a Echo DRT because a buddy said double reed was easier to blow.
I don't think I am great with Original. But I suck with the DRT

It maybe for sale soon

Call Ron over at RMC. Let him hook you up with a new call with the new tone board in it.
