As both calls were previously mentioned by Cooksey, the D2 was my first duck call and the DR 85, was my second but the first I could handle. I had an original DC in the early 90’s but it didn’t run as effortlessly as the 85 seemed to. The D2 was possibly the best, but it took a little more knowledge than what I had at that time(no adults around who duck hunted). With better knowledge of the D2 and possibly a little improv, it’s ahead of the others. I learned how to run a goose flute, with an A50. Anybody who knows anything about an old A50 knows it prolly ain’t the best entry level for a kid but it’s all there was outside the competition scene. I got to go to Davis hunting club(McClure/Wolf Lake IL.) and I met another kid my age and he had a Mick Lacy flute. Unbelievable how user friendly it was compared to the learning curve of the A50. That said, with maturity and improv, the A50 was much better.
