    What is this acrylic crud you speak of? Didn't know they made real duck calls out of anything but wood.

    All kidding aside, as a collector almost all I buy is wood. There are very few exceptions. To me, wood is always prettier. That said, I have a DR-85 and a modified D-2 Olt on my lanyard. :sp

    I can't make a wood call be "loud", but I run one in the timber almost exclusively. I did just buy a poly/acrylic call just to get some more volume for windy open water days.

    As it stands, I keep my Yentzen and an RNT timber call close. We'll see if either gets swapped out with the two new calls I just purchased. The Yentzen is the only call I have ever been able to call ducks in like a turkey with though. Called up quite a few on the water from a hundred yards away. They will come in just like a turkey getting on some strange.
