    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.

    The "right decision"to a retriever is generally that decision which feels good or is the most convenient.So its the trainers job to teach the dog that what feels good is that which pleases the trainer.

    Nobody is laughing. That is a great great meat call and is very popular down here in south LA. I will be using one this Saturday.

    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
