Duck Calls

Postby JWindish » Mon Jul 23, 2012 7:50 am

Does anyone have any preference about brand of duck calls? I'm a beginner and was wondering which ones would be easiest to learn on, but still be good in the field.

A lot of ppl say get a cheaper call to learn on and their not wrong but in my opinion it was easier for me to learn on a higher quality call.Ima echo guy that's wut I mostly stick with but there are other good calls out there.I would suggest get a cd to listen to and learn.Learn to perfect one quack.It takes a lot of practice but u will get it eventually.also some other good calls that r n a.good price range is buck Gardner Haydels , duck commander , none of these are bad to start off with

a CD is your best option.. those cheaper calls work well.. also a double reed is easier to learn on

a good call to learn on is a quackhead j frame. but choose whatever you want to. My suggestion is to start with a single reed, not a double. If you can blow a single read then you can blow a double, but not neccessarily the other way around. It will make you a better caller in the end. I agree with the other guys, get a cd and listen to it, keep your call in the car, listen to that instead of the radio, and work on your calling. Start simple, don't get frustrated it takes years and years to become a good caller.

Just look to your home state to buy your call. You have numerous call makers in the state of Georgia my two favorite. Keith custom calls and Fowlfield custom calls! Both call makers will hook you up and the prices aren't to shabby either.

i'm a RNT guy.. i'd suggest goin ahead and getting the quality call.. i'd say a short barrel or original. those are good for starters and veterans.. i blow the shortbarrel and the old style.. also the quackhead line of calls is great for beginners too.. the j-frame or the double j should do.... just try around and see what u like..

Totally agree with u like I stated before. To me with a cheaper call u limit yourself. You need a call that you can get the right sound of it that you need. There r cheaper calls that r ok but if your eventually wantin to become a good caller oneday your gonna need a good acrylic call.

Any suggestions on where to get the CD? I see on Cabela's site that some manufacturers provide a CD. The Zink Polycarbonate Power Hen 2™ PH-2 DVD Combo seems (on paper) to be a good option, but it has at least one poor review on Cabela's. Anyone tried it?
