    What's a DBF?

    I'm assuming mike is an Echo man from the 1st three calls listed...

    Sometimes it ain't the call itself, but the man holding on to it!

    Always have a haydel, here lately been playing with different calls on different days dfb, echo, and I pulled out the timber boss and whittling on it a little and have really liked the sound. Like to get a hobo but much like a rnt cant bring myself to let go the $
     
  8. I meant DFB I'm sorry Mike no disrespect intended.

    I prefer barking at em.. :cool:

    If you have no idea what that means.... Well..... Listen to someone that knows how to handle a cutdown call..

    Question?? Who blows a Duck Commander?? The only people in the world that can blow those calls for anything I believe are featured in those videos. Those calls are turds..

    I hunted a little with Kent many moons ago, a friend of a friend type thing. He was a nice guy and I can see him taking care of a problem.

    I've had the same Haydel calls on my lanyard for years, but I don't carry them much anymore.....They make too much noise when I'm sneaking up the pond levee.

    Sometimes I bark, sometimes I meow....Just depends on the situation. I've even been known to bray like a donkey when times got really tough....Works just like a pleading comeback call. :up:

    R-N-T! I've used Echo's basic polymer line too. Not bad. I just like the tone I get from a R-N-T.
     
  19. I like a 5/8-3/4 bore on my calls.
