You've answered your own question:

Sound great, all double reed, timber models.
Maybe I need to go to open water models for the fields?
"Timber" calls are typically designed to be quiet with small 1/4" exhaust bores and, therefore, generally easy to over-blow and lock up.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.
