What is your favorite and Why?
RNT short barrel for the woods. Easy to blow and has a great sound. Also carry the Banded Winter Hawk which is the Pure duck with a little more rasp and sounds great for any use. Cant go wrong with the Banded Pure Duck also.

Duck calls are very personal. I probably have two to three dozen and I switch them in and out. Right now I have two on my lanyard, a Glen Scooby wood and an acrylic DU call I got at a banquet years ago, I think it might be a RTN. The acrylic call is louder and a bit higher pitched, I use it for distance and use the woodier Scooby in close. Some inexpensive calls I have liked in the past are Mallardtone, Faulks and Haydels.

RNT MVP: not just the most effective call I've owned but fun to run.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

I used to use a Haydel Dr 85 until someones dog decided to leave their tooth marks on it along with my Haydel BWT call....never could pin the crime on any particular dog but saw a couple of guilty faces when interrogated...now I have a pair of RNT Quackheads a single reed and a double, not bad for a $20 call
