Hi, I'm trying to find an Old Squaw Duck Call as I hunt for them on the Niagara River and Lake Ontario in NY. We have a good population of birds (4-5,000) that winter here. They are a very vocal bird, much more vocal than any Mallard and I want to call them. They have a loud constant up & down pitch call that is hard to discribe, If you have heard one you know what I mean. I have tried mouth calling them but after a minute or two, your to hoarse and your throats sore. If know of anyone who makes one or can custom make one please let me know asap.

I know exactly the sound you are talking about. I have never heard of an oldsquaw call. If there is one out there I would be interested as well.

I bought 3 of the calls, they sound alright, not great but seem to do the trick whebn the birds are passing us instead on coming to the deeks.
