Realistic Wood Duck call

Postby Airborne28 » Tue Jun 03, 2014 6:32 am

I'm stationed in Fort Benning GA, not in any flyway. We do have wood ducks here but I suppose most of them are "locals". I never hunted woodies till last year and I scraped out 24 on the season (plus 1 mallard, 1 ring neck and a GWT).

I picked up the Duck Commander woodie call and practiced on it a lot. There seems to be a lot more out there though and I'm looking for some feed back on brands. I had a buddy pick up a muddy paws, it just dosen't sound right.

Any help would be appriciated lads.

Mmmmmm I have and use a Muddy Paws Wood Duck call and it works perfect and sounds very realistic. That would have been my recommendation

I think the Duck commander woodie call is spot on.

I like a bays call, not loud but just a good sound. At least the one I have

Kelly Kalls woodie call is awesome. Very easy to run and very realistic.

They are cheap but I have not found one that sounds more realistic than the flextone woody call.

I ended up getting a Kritter Getter. http://www.krittergetter.com/

Sounds great! i can make all the vocalizations of a Woodie Hen and Drake. The "laugh" or chuckle they do is hard and I'm still working on it.

I recently picked up a Muddy Paws Woodie call and have had similar results, I've noticed that the call is a little higher pitched than some of the others on the market but it's very easy to get a good drake squeal and it breaks over nicely for the hen welcome call (just a little difference in the tone from other calls).

I still don't think I'm using the call to its fullest potential but it's only been a couple of days since it came in. Tried in vain to find some sound files on the web of what its capable of, so for the time being it's just been trial and error to figure out what it can do.
