I was watching a duck calling video and the guy was using a call with a whole in the bottom half of the call at the side to change the pitch, would it be a bad idea to drill a whole to create that hole in the side of my call? Thanks.

I used to own a vari-tone double reed winglock and found myself almost never using it[the hole].Question is.....will you really put it to constant use???

That's a good way to have a call that has two distinct pitches, so you can easily sound like more than one duck. Just drill about a 1/4" hole about 2/3 of the way to the end of the insert. Make sure to use a fast drill press with a good, sharp bit or it could catch and hang up, which could crack your call.

What kind of call do you want to drill??
I hate the idea of anyone drilling a RNT, Echo or any other high end call.
Most of the high end calls already have 8-15 ducks in the call. Whinny, raspy, loud or soft. They do it ALL.
I have RNT calls that has many more ducks in it then a primos wench(which has a hole).
I would only drill a call that has NO tone or volume variation.
