About the Duck Calls
The most important characteristic of a duck call is the way it performs. Woodruff Outdoors offers a call that is great for most hunting situations and can best be described as a mid range call, even described by some as a loud timber call. My calls have a raspy low end quack, can get loud for enticing comeback calls, and can sweet talk even the most wary birds into your spread. I do not make calls to win competitions , rather, I make calls that sound like live ducks. I take pride in producing beautiful, realistic sounding calls, and work until I feel each one meets my standards.
Which call should I pick?
The call you decide to get is up to you; I can make acrylic or wood calls. Acrylic is a very popular medium because of its weatherproof qualities, durability, and sound. However, wood calls have stood the test of time, and many people love wooden calls because they too have a great sound, are all unique, and feel great in the hand. I can get many colors of acrylic, and many different species of wood, such as Cocobolo, Hedge, Bocote, and African Blackwood. There is a slight difference in sound between acrylic and wooden calls, but either type will call in the birds just as good as the other. Wooden calls have a more mellow sound than acrylic, and acrylic calls tend to be much louder and crisper. If you want the best of both worlds, stabilized calls may interest you. Stabilized calls offer the look and feel of wood, but they are impregnated with acrylic resin for durability and offer a sound similar to acrylic. Most stabilized woods are made from burls and spalted wood, so each piece is very beautiful and unique.
