Best Duck Call – Is Duck Commander the Best Caller in 2016?
Once you master the art of duck calling you will have them coming so close you could count their feathers. The closer they come the better you are able to get a clean kill and the better chance you will have of identifying each type before you strike.
Waterfowl calls come in numerous different types and price levels. Plastic duck callers are usually the cheapest, followed by wood, then acrylic. Before we get into our duck call reviews, lets take a look at what we recommend for beginners.
Beginner duck calls should be inexpensive and easy to for a newbie to produce a good and loud duck call. However, knowing when to call can be as important to when not to.
One of the easiest calls for a newbie to use is the Haydels DR-85 Double Reed Mallard Call. It takes very little effort to produce a really nice note and best of all it brings the mallards in. For the price you really can’t beat this duck caller.
Once you master this, you can then move on to one of the more expensive callers found below.
This is one of the least expensive Duck Commander calls and is geared towards the beginner. The Uncle Si call is very easy to blow and produces a raspy tone that attracts mallards, teal and wood ducks. It is a single reed caller and is very durable for its price.
If you are just starting out or want one that is just for playing around, this is a very nice caller. It’s made of durable polycarbonate so you’ll be using it for many seasons before it wears out.
Even though the Duck Commander Wood Duck Call has “wood” in the title, it is actually made of a durable plastic. To clear things up it is a Wood Duck call, but is not made of wood.
It is a single reed caller that is durable and very inexpensive. It takes a little more air pressure to use, but it isn’t that hard to perfect. Combine this with some wood duck decoys and a blind and you’ll have woodies falling out of the sky in no time.
