    New Noise Maker - Echo XLT

    I've been wanting one of these for a couple years... Finally broke down and dropped some coin on a new Echo XLT. It's a single-reed acrylic, clear barrel and dark green exhaust. Last year I tweaked some of my calls and at the time I got comfortable running them very "light." Light as in...

    Holy Smartweed!

    I drove out to a property this morning to investigate a mosquito related complaint, anticipating a stagnant mosquito-infested mudhole. When I got there the swamp was damp, but mostly dried up. But what came up from the ground was this glorious sea of green! All of you guys that duck hunt...

    Proposed increase to Duck Stamp

    I'm sure that some people will probably complain about the increase if it should go through, but as long as the funds continue to go towards habitat purchases, and conservation practices that benefit hunters, I'm good with it. Waterfowlers Split on Proposed Duck Stamp Price Increase by...

    Duck Calling Basics

    First and foremost, I'd like to say that I am in no way an expert waterfowl caller. However, over the past 12 years I've practiced enough to be able to hold my own in a duck blind. Without instruction or mentoring, learning to call ducks can be a frustrating task for a beginner. In my...
