hi all , just wondering what calls pepole are using around the country for ducks ,and geese , i use the archie jorden goose calls i dont think they can be beaten especally the pinkfoot call , for mallard i use the primos original wench,for teal and pintail i use the primos high roller, for wigeon i just whistle them in my self. so i would like to know what other fowlers use and what views they have on them and what sucess they have had out in the field .


regards wag :thumbs:

For geese I use a number of acme calls and pinkfoot caller. On wigeon I use a home made call that I also use for foxes; two spent cartridge brasses with the plastic and primer taken out, pushed together face on face, and blow through the primer hole. Works well........

I use for mallard a Haydel's DR-85 doublereed mallard & its realy good for me & im no pro at using it i think but it works well.Our goose call is a Haydel's but not sure what model.Not used it in the field yet but have turnned geese a few times now from the garden etc right over us but in the field with a gun you know the score.

Olt went out of business around 5 years ago The Archie Jordan calls parts are made by a Guy called Dave Jackson who used to work for OLT. They are shipped to the UK and then tuned by Kevin Wilcox AKA Archie Jordan the main reason is David Jackson is a Master call maker but has never seen or heard a Pinkfoot or Greylag Goose.

Intersting point we have to retune the Canada calls as well as the US versions are too high pitched for the UK geese.

i would say most goose calls you buy need re-tuning to the right pitch
