    so this year i just got into serious waterfowl hunting. pretty much all set with standard equipment, have locations to hunt. im looking to spend between 50-100 bucks on a quality duck call. ive got a few in the 25-35 dollar range but am looking to step it up a level. any recommendations?

      I have always used my dad's old D-2 by P.S. Olt. Great sound and very versatile. I see Olt is now back in business. Also a great color (all black!). Buy yourself a piece of history and a proven duck call. Here's their website: www.psolt.com/products/d2-duck-call.html

        Price doesn't necessarily equate to quality.
        Tone means everything.

          True enough, Bubba. But many of us don't live near a large sports outlet where we can try out a lot of different kinds of calls. And I agree, the sales literature and/or price don't necessarily mean a call is any good. So this guy is asking some of us who have experience for some advice. I haven't hunted ducks much in the last several decades, mostly geese. What call do you use? Ever used anything that wasn't good? I have a short reed goose call that was given to me but have never been impressed with it. The short reed goose calls are noisier but I think most of them sound like crap, especially from a distance. I think they're better when used together with other callers to make chatter (which as often as not is used too much anyway). Personally, I think the acrylic calls are overrated. Certainly for the price.

            The high end calls today are made of ACRYLIC. They come in all kinds of fancy colors, and designs. They can produce crisper volume, quality tones, and are not subject the warping like wood calls are. There are many, many makers of these high end calls. The poly carbonates are less expensive. I own some wood classics. (ie) a Yentsen made in Texas by George Yentsen, and his partner "Cowboy" James Fernandez, they were the first of the double reed calls, and a Stuttgart Ark. made call by Harry Dye that has a single brass reed. I also have a Dudley Faulk call. All of these are wood calls. If you are willing to spend some money...buy an acrylic made call.

              Good article on pressure testing. It takes about 40 hours to test for one caliber and bullet weight with about 16 types of powder.
