    10point had texted me this photo, in regards to the RNT, it looks like a banquet call.

    I have a couple of those old Mallard Tones (wooden call on the left) from back in the 70's when I was big into duck hunting.

    I was a BBDH before being a BBDH was cool. :fit:

    I wonder if the 3rd on the right is still made in England?

    I looked online about the RNT,i couldnt find anything that looked like it.

    The two RNTs on the right are the ones that you used to be able to buy at the Walmarks. I had a few of em when I was a kid.

    Well, I'm 26 now, and when I had them I was running around the house driving my mama nuts with it. So I'm guessing 18-20 years ago. :biggrin:

    I think the on on the end Rich-tone-products were made by buck gardner back in the day and not RNT.

    I am glad you are going to enjoy those calls. All the names for them are in that text I sent you last night with the picture. I could not tell you where I got them. I have had them in my hunting closet for years. The one that is third from the left is marked "Made in England", and I thought it sounded best of all of them. I am no duck hunter that is for sure! I have been duck hunting once and goose hunting once and that was enough to last me a lifetime. I hope you enjoy them!

    I think it was made by buck gardner in early to mid 90's.

    The two on the right are not Rich-n-Tone calls. The last one says Rich-n-Tone but it was made by Buck Gardner when Butch was allowing him to make polycarbonate calls for him. This was before Buck started making calls under his own name.

    The third from left is a "Timber Rattler" made by Rex Capps out of England. They were never available at Wal-Mart to my knowledge even 18-20 years ago but you could pick them up at most Mom and Pop stores. McSwains used to sell a bunch of them back when Mark Weedman was still making the colorful "Weedy's Pin Oak" call.

    I still have friends that blow a Timber Rattler. They are all from England and grew up hunting what is known as the "Big Ditch". Most of the guys from that area blew Rex Capps calls or Dittos.

    The other 2, as already mentioned are a Mallard Tone and a Haydells

    I personally think the Buck Gardner call or the Rex Capps call would sound pretty good. The Haydells would sound as equally well. I have never blown a Mallard Tone. Have owned a few but they don't have much of a face value so I have never owned them for very long
