Sorry about the crappy quality of the pics..the call looks much better in person. lol. Had to use my cell camera as my digi SLR is on the fritz at the moment.

African Blackwood with flamed Hedge (bois d'arc / osage orage) laminated. Poly double reed timber insert.

Call

lol...i just remembered a show where tred barta (love him or hate him) was duck hunting with a bow...it actually looks like a hoot. i know a "spot" where birds get in nice and close...in your face shooting. be a good place to give it a go. look me up come fall if you want to tag along. you will, of course, have to wear a blind fold on the ride out and back, leave all types of navigational aids at home, sign a non compete clause, go through a rigorous and humiliating all night initiation process and most importantly, bring the beer... ;)

Good looking call. I've always wanted to get into making them. It's pretty tough to touch a call that looks like that and sounds good for under $100. How does it sound?

sounds great. it's a soft to medium range call that i use for talking ducks in from 50 yards until they're feet down in the dekes. you won't get a loud screaming sound from it...but then, i have never heard a duck scream anyway. lol. It is easy to blow and has the sexiest little feed chuckle and 3 note greets you have ever heard. at the very least, ducks seem to really like it. not sure what a stage judge would think about it.

i might have a sound clip around somewhere..i'll see if i can get it uploaded online.
