Recently Andy (AC73) sold me two Basin waterfowl calls, one double reed and one single reed and the great guy that he is, also gave me some lessons. I was fishing around for calls for a while now trying to see what I like (DC Duck Picker, 85, Double Nasty, ect.) all the well known calls out there and I had a few that I liked but these two Basin calls have set the bar. Andy, if you ever do set up a Basin calls seminar, let me know, I already have both calls but that Golden Oak Pearl & Smoke is calling my name! :smiley-clappin-yellow: So what is the number one call on your lanyard?

Rudso,

It was my pleasure to helping you out, you learned and picked it up quick, your single quacks which is the foundation
of all good calling, progressed as the morning went on, and your feed call which is hard for most, sounded good
and realistic as well. I'm glad the you like the new Basin Waterfowl Calls, Dave Dorrell does a great job building them.
Always feel free to call me if you ever need help, maybe next season you can add Goose Calling to your Arsenal.
Practice, Practice, Practice... :smiley_10sign: You guys better look out , the Kid's on Fire and sounding good. :smiley-clappin-yellow:

I like my JJ Lares A2 Aluminum. Great range and fun to blow.

There are a lot of good calls (DR85) out there and most sound (DR85) really good in the right hands (DR85). It is hard (DR85) to pick just one (DR85). So I guess I'll just say, find a call (DR85) that is easy to blow (DR85), that sounds ducky (DR85), and stick with it (DR85). Personally, I forget what call I like best...................... :smiley-clappin-yellow:

The call comes second.

Reading the birds comes first!

These are all great calls, but I've seen more birds die this year because of a call given away at CWA dinners :smiley-clappin-yellow:

Love my Grounds Sweet Meet. It all depends on where you are hunting and what the birds are doing. some days certain calls pull them in like they are on a string, other days they don't. Most days, when you need a good call, I think any well made wood call is the ticket though.
