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.View attachment 317870
Duck Season Somewhere podcast had Mr Art Lejeune on a few months back. Great listen so I stopped in the next time I was in Lake Charles. Great visit. Pretty interesting guy. He had some new calls he had just made, out of walnut if I remember right. Signed it and gave it to me for free. Had a box of 20 or so and this one blew the best but didn’t sound to good at the shop.
Got home and played w air presentation and got it right. @Sunklands you are correct. A lot of the old cane or Cajun calls don’t take much air at all. And this one, I swear I’m just using straight air, not from my diaphragm. I’ve blown a few cane calls like that before too. This is the duckiest call I’ve ever blown. It don’t do nothing fancy but sure sounds like that old summer mallard flying around the marsh.
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.
