    Calls

    What's everyone using this year on their lanyard? I run several different calls. When duck hunting RNT Daisy Cutter , refuge hybrid, Haydall 6 in 1 whistle. For geese I run a Bill Saunders Heavy, Bill Sauer I5 killer, Rnt Barbelly, Bill Saunders B.C. Minima for west coast squeakers.

    I am a molt gear guy. Really like my acrilyc reflex and my molded ex-3. The Qax is a great duck call that blows different than any I've ever had before and all the MG calls are super easy to blow in terms of air pressure. The shop will also tune anything hey send out to your specs. Scott tunes each call. The Rush goose call is also a really great call, and the new backwater duck call is a great small water call and I've come to appreciate the range. I've run grounds, foiles, R&T, and echo in the past, and there are lots of good calls out there. Trying several and finding what works best for you is important, kind of like shotguns.

    If anyone wants to get into some MG calls let me know.

    My lanyard consists of a RNT original acrylic, RNT short barrel cocobola, and Echo timber acrylic. My favorite is the Echo

    Does anyone use the Duck commander calls? Are they worth a crap?

    I can’t call ducks to save my life so I was just curious.
    I go to the Mountains to loose my mind and find my soul.

    I've switched to only running DuckLander Calls (DLC). Local guy that makes the calls, so I can swing by his shop after work and pick up new ones. He's made quite a few custom calls for me over the last few years, including a set of hedge calls that I cut off a farm that my dad was selling. they made pretty good presents..
    I used to run a few RNT's and Echo's, but they always seem to freeze up on me. I never have problems with DLC calls locking up, and they sound SOOOO GOOOOD!

    I don't know anything about Duck Commander calls, but I'd generally try to shy away from plastic double reed calls.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    A couple calls Bobby at DLC has turned for me. First two photos are hedge calls off our farm, last photo is a Cocobola call he turned and engraved to commemorate my new baby boy.
