    Robin, plan a trip to Northeast Arkansas in October. There are about 15 custom call shops up there, but most shut down during duck season for some reason.....If you decide you are going to make a trip send me a pm and I will get you some addresses and phone numbers.

    Last year I picked up a call from http://www.rmcustomcalls.com/index.html and I really like it.

    There are so many options out there it'll make your head spin. Many of them have a loyal following, so a call you don't like is fairly easy to unload.

    There is an article in the Sept Wildfowl mag(pg 92/93) about custom calls. The RM that TCFarmer just mentioned is there. I actually have 4 RM calls and have hunted with Ronnie a few times. He can custom make a call to fit your style. He is the most anal attention to detail guy I have ever met. And I mean that in a good way. I sent a call back for him to do a little tuning and he didn't like the way it sounded so he made me a brand new one at no cost. Can't beat that!

    want a good duck call go to duck hunting capital of the world. arkansas. more specifically stuttgart

    if you get a chance to go to the wings over the prarie festival during thanksgiving weekend in stuttgart the booths down by the world championship duck calling contest have hundreds of call makers

    cant go wrong with a RNT daisy cutter. best all around duck call.

    if you hunt flooded timber go for a backwards turned olt (arkansas cut down) tuned by an arkansas or louisiana hand. because olts are in short demand you can always go for a Black Ops DFB which is a variation of the arkansas style cut down olt

    This is beautiful!

    I personally blow Echo and RnT calls. I have two Zink acrylics but they are harder to blow.
