Duck Calls

Postby SouthernWingsAssaultTeam » Tue Apr 16, 2013 4:49 pm

Just curious i was thinkin about Florida Duck hunters and was wondering how many of you collect calls or buy higher end calls for hunting rather than a polycarb call ? If so what is your favorite .Its been a ghost town here since duck season went out just trying to see who all else is out there that is a full time duck bum. Obiviously my favorite is Echo but i also use a few cutdowns too.Now i mainly use these calls outta state but i just wanna see what everybodys opinion is on this or duck calls in Florida in general.Ill try to post my collection if i can get it to work.

Primos teal hen and primos whistle is all I use.

I have a black/pearl daisy cutter. A custom ole miss short barrel, and a older acrylic my dad gave me, no idea what kind it is though. They hardly ever leave my bag when I hunt instate. But going to school in Mississippi I get to use them a good bit.

Quackhunter I got a daisy cutter just like that i also made a call that looks similar to ur ole miss but mine is a American. When I'm here in Florida I rarely use a mallard call unless Im hunting gadwall and then still I do very little but I go outta state a lot and anything you can do to make yourself a more versital duck hunter helps.to me duck calls are a big part of duck hunting may e not here but that's why I asked the question to see wut everybody thought. Thanks fellas

I actually was chasing a group of 20-30 mallards this season I had found in Tallahassee. That was the only time I used them in town. But outside of using the calls I think they are cool to collect.

I have more calls than I really use. I have some top end, and some cheap ones. My fav is a DR-85 that I hand tuned. It is sounds so good that a buddy bought one and made me tune it for him. I uped the the pitch and put a squeek in it. Sounds like a young hen mallard, but I can run it like a hen teal also. Other than that I just use a whistle.
