Duck Calls

Postby one ducky lady » Sun Jul 13, 2008 11:23 pm

Do any of you ladies have any nice colored calls? I've seen a couple pink ones that I love (some pink and black, some pink and clear and some all pink) I just haven't settled on one.. or two or three yet.

If you have a color or color scheme you're particularly fond of load the pics up :)

I'm still learning calling, so I've stuck with the calls that I've gotten for a good price for now.

I have a Knight and Hale Bachelorette

and a Quackhead Double J

I also picked up a wood duck call last winter and we'll see how that works at our secret wood duck spot. :)

I love the red one, the hubby gave me a similar looking one that I keep in my car to practice on the way to work and class with :rofl:

I do the same thing. We always have a couple of calls in the car (or for me, purse). We get a kick out of people's stares while we practice driving down the road. :lol:

I really need to get a goose call, though. Early season is right around the corner! Woohoo!

I'm not sure which call I like better. The Bachelorette is very easy to blow, but the Double J has a nice sound to it. It kept sticking when it got wet, but the hubby took it apart, fiddled around with it a little and it works a lot better now. He has a Quackhead call too, and his also has great sound. Although we've noticed that they're each starting to get cracks around the barrel. It hasn't affected the sound yet, but still disappointing.

Yeah the looks that you get when you practice in your car are hysterical... I also have cd's to practice with and sometimes people can hear it outside of my car.. hilarious.

My hubby's bday gift was a wood lathe to make calls with so i'm sure there will be absolutely no shortage of calls for us... i'm definitely planning on having a rainbow of calls to have fun with.

Woohoo! I just got "Bad Grammar" in the mail yesterday and my husband and I have custom Gander Valley goose calls coming! I can't wait to start practicing!

At last, women that hunt. Im new to the site. I live in ABQ NM and love to duck hunt mostly, but enjoy flyfishing and other hunting.
At the moment Im into duck calling. My husband bought me a wooden Daisy Cutter call and still trying to get used to it. I think I do better with the acrylic calls. Any of you do competition calling? I would like to give that a try, but need lots of advice and a ton of practice. Looking forward to many conversations about the great outdoors.

Mallardmom, welcome to the site! :welcome:

I've heard the Daisy Cutter is a pretty good call. I'm still using cheap duck calls, but I may splurge and buy myself a custom call from a local callmaker in the spring. I love the custom goose call I ordered though. I'd highly recommend Gander Valley to anyone, the customer service was awesome.

I don't know much about competition calling, other than what I've read. It would be pretty cool, but right now I'm just hoping to fool ducks while I'm out. ;)

I'd love to learn to flyfish! I'm just afraid of getting into one more expensive hobby. lol. I do some panfish and bass fishing in the summer. Nothing too serious, we just have fun being outside. And the hubby and I found a great spot for channel cat's late last year. We'll be trying for those ugly things, when the weather warms up. I deer hunt, started turkey hunting last spring, and we're about to start a lot of bunny hunting for the next three months.

Almost forgot to mention that I generally leave the two calls I posted about earlier in the shoebox and now my go-to call is a Big River Duck Buster. It's a cheap acrylic call, but it works great for me. And it's a pretty blue. :wink:
