I am getting ready for a new season, in new country, and I have no idea what kind of call I should get for these ducks. They are all mainly puddle jumpers here, Pintail, Mallard, Wood, some divers too........what kind of call or calls should I get and where can I get them? Any help would be great........thanks
Whats your budget? If its low you can find most at your local wal-mart.
Mallard - I strongly reccomend any of the Buck Gardner poly calls, they come in double or single. The Mallard Magic is a double and comes with a 6n1 whistle and a great instructional cd.
Pintail - 6n1 Whistle
Woodie - You couldnt find one of these at a Walmart I dont think, but just find a Wood Duck call. Theres sure to be some major outdoor store in your area. I would reccomend a Haydels, because theyve got a really nic one with a diagphram (sp?) that is real easy to blow, but I dont know if youll find them in Montana.
Doesnt really matter how much they cost, I am doing something I love so...lol..........but yeah I have umm, Sheels AllSports, Big Bear, Gator Sports, Shiptons Big R, not sure if any of these are ringin a bell for ya, but there all pretty big outdoor stores, you think they would carry the calls I need though, right? I thought so I just thought that I would check with you folks first. Thanks

They should be just fine, but if you really wanted to, you could git them online.

Thanks folks, just one more question, what do you guys prefer, I am hearing about double reeds, single reeds, short and long....lol.....not quite sure what I should go for, I do alot of calling with hand calls for different game, I just dont know what would be the best way to go?
Double Reed - Sure, its easy to blow, but its limited (exception: Buck Gardner Double Nasty XL)
Single Reed - Harder to learn but more range, can do more with them
About the Double Nasty XL, its basically revolutionary. It has the ease and forgiveness of a double but can do anything a single can. Theyre made in a new Spit-Tech design. Which guarantees the call not to stick. You should give it a try.
