Hot New Duck and Goose Calls for 2014

It was 40 years ago, but I can still recall the black Olt D-2 my pop carried in the pocket of his canvas coat. Tethered by a short piece of rawhide lace and a safety pin, the call — best as I can remember — never left the security of that chest pocket.


You see, we weren't great callers, he and I, but the Ohio mallards, black ducks, wood ducks, and teal didn't seem to know the difference. Today, a waterfowler without a call and a deep-seated knowledge in its use is a captain without a ship.


And, fortunately there's no shortage of available calls. Wooden tradition still sells, albeit oft-replaced by exotic synthetics of polycarbonate, acrylic, and even aluminum. And the colors; a thousand hues of Blue Pearl, Cop Car, and my favorite, Nuclear Orange.

Single-reed, double-reed, short-reed, flute, timber, open water...each a work of art, crafted with skill and experience afield.
