This actually went together much easier and faster than I expected. Either I was lucky and got it right or everything I read on making duck calls led me in the right direction. A couple pieces ended up in the burn bin but that’s normal for me until I get a method worked out. It was a nice way to spend the evening after work.
I enjoy hunting but duck hunting just doesn’t have the same appeal to me. I have a couple uncles, nephews and friends that are avid duck hunters though, and I was asked if I would be able to make some calls. Now that I’ve looked into it a little, it seems there is quite a market for it. Most calls just aren’t handmade anymore, it’s injection molded acrylic or CNC.
Edit Added 2 more photos to show the sounding board, wedge and reed. Should’ve done that in the first place.
