I have an old signiture series single reed polycarb that I just barely put back on my lanyard. I hadn't used it in probably four years.... but its just so dang ducky I figured I'd give it another run.... Its pretty good for an old call but I have to rest it, otherwise it starts sticking on me. Its so broken in that I can just roll a feeding call on it seems like forever before coming down into a quack. I love that old call.... I actually had it stored away in my "personal stuff" box (because it was the first call I ever owned), came across it, blew on it and thought I'd put it back to some good use.ChiefAutoParts said:Buck Gardner's older calls are also some of my favorites.
Call it what it is??? I DID!!!!! Guys out there blowing as hard and loud as they can. They blow the same routine from start to finish, then when the birds don't responde, they generally sky blast them. A hail call is a attention getter. In all the years I have been hunting waterfowl,never have I heard a duck scream over and over, or have I ever heard one drop in to a feed back to a squealing repition of chatter. Yup wanna be comp callers. Difference is, a comp caller can keep it smooth and clean. A comp caller is basically a musician. He plays all the notes in a alloted time frame. Comp calling has zero to do with working birds. These guys buy a CD, They hear all the notes then try to reproduce them ALL AT THE SAMETIME!!! Working birds and blowing on stage, two different things. Wanna be comp callers in the marsh and bad callers, that would be the samething,sorry you couldn't put the two together by yourself!!!!!NovaNation said:GreenHead 2,
Comp callers sound like ducks so what ever you have been hearing in the marsh can't be comp caller wannabe's. Call it what it is " bad calling" and leave comp calling out of it.
I would suggest a double reed call by Sean Mann. The Double Trouble is the model.
Good luck in the call search.
