    Only one mallard call for me. For almost forty years I have blown a Sure Shot Deluxe. I have three and my favorite has a few tooth marks from a long time gone blf that eas one hell of a duck dog. She did not blow the call she just picked it up one day as a pup and left her mark on it. I hope to be buried with that call.

    I haven't found it yet; we've come close with the RNT Timber Hawg; Wood; Loud and Raspy; good back pressure but not the easiest thing to double cluck on. Still it took me a long time to find anything I liked. The newer acrylic calls are just too clean; They just don't sound like a dirty ole duck to me. My Fav was one my grandpa had made for him; it has been lost to time; so now it's trial and error.

    I have collected hundreds of calls over the years searching for that one true duck sound. The past couple years my favorite call was the DC picker. Until by chance I bid on a call on this very forum and won the call. If you've never heard one of Skip Campbell's duck calls your missing out on a great true duck sounding call.
    BTW I don't know Skip but would like to meet Him one day.

    Haydel DR-85. It sounds like a duck and if I loose it in the water I'm out less than twenty bucks.

    I also have a custom call that blows really good, but its hard to beat the DR85.

    I sometimes have to go thru a dozen or so to get the right reeds and tone board to be effected in my style of calling, but once I have got it...DOA on ducks, even the pintails.

    Favorite all time is a Taylor Made burnt hedge, can't go wrong with a RNT Short Barrel, Gaston Field, Ducklander Sinner or a Field Tested Shot Caller. Recently bought a RNT Blackout DC, suppose to just be a black unpolished daisy cutter, mine does not sound like any dc I have ever run, flat out nasty.

    I use a few different J.A. Kolter calls depending on the situation. Love 'em. I have a thing for beautiful wood calls and none sound or look better than Joe's calls. Also a hell of a nice guy.
