Favorite Duck Call?

18 posts in this topic

My duck call of 10 years+ is in need of replacement. Looking to buy something for under $40.00. Anyone recommend a call with a good sounding greeter and feeder? Thanks.

I have been using a Primos "wench" for a couple of years now with pretty good calling success. Not sure ho much it costs though. Im sure there will be a few good suggestions.

Echo or RNT, look how many years you had the last one. Why not go big?

The primos Yo sista or phat lady are good calls and they're $25 i think. Otherwise Quackhead calls are sweet and they're usually $20-30.

I would go with the echo poly/diamondwood calls. Less than $50.

Check out Doc Hulls calls. I just got a DD-1 and it is a sweet call. Custom call for a matter of fact. And it DOES NOT stick. Every other call I ever blew into sticks after a while when saliva gets in it. I am telling you this one does not stick. They are around 40-50 bucks.

Haydel's DR-85 should be near the top of the list of great, inexpensive duck calls.

I also have a dirt cheap Duck Commander that sounds great as well.

i dont know about yours but when they get wet or have built up moisture they lock up, but for $15-20 bucks and constantly stuffing them in your waders there awesome calls.

really really loud nasty call. loud enough to muster out a competition hail call.

the loretta hen(another primos call) is a great call..sounds like a nasty old dirty whore hen.

The Quackheads sound feakin great and there super cheap.

Also my favorite call is a mick lacy duck call. I cant remember what its called but i didnt pay more than $30 bucks for it.

If you do feel like spending some money i would throw in for a foiles strait meat mallard i believe its around $125

just my $0.02

I've been ridiculed by others in person & on wfc for not using a $100 call. I say BS, I've had very good luck using Primos and other inexpensive calls and have had the same luck shootin birds as those who have preached the RNT's and other $$ calls. its not the call ,but the caller who decides the ult.outcome.

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy.

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.
