    He has expanded since I first started going over there which was about 10 years ago now, but it has always looked like a shop that some old man would make bird houses in instead of one of the biggest call makers in the buisness. I always appreciated the simplicity of it. Nothing against rnt, but when you go there and see all the big cnc machines and other automated equipment it just takes away from the nostalgic quality of a duck call. But then again, I liked echo calls alot better before all of the engraving on the barrels and inserts also.

    I have a Drake Brake that was a gift from a good buddy that was originally from Marion. Once I got that call broke in it sounds great. Had it for a few years now and it just keeps getting better.

    Great call, Greg put all his hot air to good use by forcing it thru a duck call lol. He placed top 10 in the worlds a couple times I think. I love my DB, sounds great, plus it's the purtiest call I own.
