We should have a duck calling contest for those that can toot one and have the computer skills to post a video clip/ youtube video of them doing so. Give everyone,say, 3 days to post their duck calling video.. I would update the OP and then everyone could vote.
Phil says that cuz he can't win one and still has to sell duck calls. My take on it is you want to be able to imitate any real duck sounds you hear and a contest shows off your repertuar. Now I get that you don't blow a 30 count cadence into an MVP in the duck hole but its still showing off the way you are able to manipulate a duck call.
In. But we need some ground rules because we aren't going to run this like the pro circuit. I say we go straight meat calling. Maybe you're given 15 seconds for a hail/comeback portion, 10 seconds for feeding chuckle, etc. I don't want the OB passing out trying to carry on an 11 minute hail call. This isn't the end of November Rain.
Competion callers are very great callers. There routines are loud and fast and they show extreme control of the call. No the routine is not going to bring mallards in close we all know that. Watch a few meat calling completions and you will hear more of the live duck calling. But don't think these guys don't know how to call a mallard or more importantly when to call just because Phil Robertson says a duck couldn't win a contest
