View Full Version : whistling duck calls

OK I am cheap. I have been using a school whistle with the ball removed. I want to buy a call and could use some advice or what you prefer. I still use cheap double reed calls no acrylic high dollar calls in my lanyard.

Wingsetters are the best all around...period.


This is the best widgeon/drake mallard call I've ever used. The widgeon is perfect and the grunt drake is perfect too. Duck Commander calls it a drake mallard call but it is phenomenal for widgeon...it has that perfect wheese that a widgeon has....kinda hard to explain it but if I'm calling widgeon I grab this before the wingsetter.


Both are inexpensive and those are probably the only two calls on my lanyard that will never change. I'm always switching hen mallard calls but those have never changed....

DO NOT BUY THE MORWHISTLE by New Version.... the ball inside locks up very bad when wet. It's very annoying. Everyone I know that used it hated it. It works good in the garage but not in the field.

Wingsetters. They last until the plastic dries up and dies. Can be decades before you break them.

As far as whistles go I prefer the simple black plastic Buck Gardner 7in1. They last years unless you chew on it and crack it like me. It still works just hard to hold a good note.

Thanks for the input I am going out to buy the wingsetter. I should have plenty of time to practice. Very dry year up here I am not sure the season will be much to talk about without some water.
