    Honker.....Basin Abomination "Iceman", very low, very sharp, very fast

    Lesser/Tav....Basin Abomination "lesser", can get quite high, but still has a low end.

    Cackler...Basin Abomination "Cackler"...the only call I have heard that actually sounds like a Cackler.

    Speck.......Basin Abomination "Bar Belly", loud and realistic, will do all the sounds a speck can do.

    Snow......Basin Abomination "Snowman", very raspy and realistic

    Duck.....Zink XR2...100% hen mallard...

    Easy... whichever call causes that neck to crane around and the wings to do the "blue flash" of the speculum as my next dinner is banking a 180 degree turn...

    I have been experimenting with different calls this year but each of the following has brought home the bacon: RNT original acrylic, RNT Short Barrel, Echo Open water Acrylic, Echo Timber Acrylic***, Betts Open water Acrylic*

    *** most blue flashes
    * sounds most like a duck to my ears but has sticking problems

    What are geese?
