Single reed duck call.

Postby Hawk87 » Sat May 24, 2014 4:20 pm

My wife is offering to get me a single reed duck call for Father's Day. Her price limit is 50 dollars. I currently have a dr-85 and a buck Gardner double nasty 2. I want a call that I can use for the carlson compact calling course, and has a little more range. I am pretty new to calling, so something that is easy to learn would be great. I am looking at the rnt duck hunter or timber hunter. I was leaning towards the duck hunter for more volume. I mostly hunt marshes, but sometimes next to some big water.

I was hoping you guys could give me some feedback or suggestions.

I'm no pro caller but my first single reed was a rnt quackhead j-frame. They are under $30 dollars, sound great and easy to use. You can get pretty loud on it for your open water hunting and still has a good bottom end.

For $43 you can get a RnT hunter series Timber. (Not timbre)

In your price range...it's the one. :)

Poly molded from the Timbre though, correct?

Thanks for the feedback. I was wondering though, why that one instead of the RnT Hunter? (This one http://www.rntcalls.com/products/items.aspx?id=11) I am just curious if there is a specific reason. Thanks

Don't know where Aunt B went, but the Timber Hunter's inset was molded from the now discontinued Timbre's insert and the Duck Hunter's insert was molded from the Original's insert. So the TH will be inherently quieter and many would say "duckier," while the DH will be inherently louder and cleaner. Couple of the guys at RNT have told me the Timbre was the easiest of their single reeds for most double reed users at shows to pick up and do some good with, and I know it was the easiest of the singles I tried running during my own transition from doubles.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

Ok, that makes sense then why it would be a good choice. Thanks.

"Cause it's $43 plus shipping. Duck Hunter would be your choice. You wanted something a little louder for the days your hunting Open water and it still will be fine for the Marsh.
Good Luck :thumbsup:
