There comes a time in every mans life when he watches way too much "duck dynasty" and feels inspired to build his own call. I do not claim or pretend to be an expert on ducks, duck calls or duck hunting. Heck I don't even live near ducks! I built this after watching them make this on tv and looking at photos. This is how I did it and it works pretty well.
Step 1: Materials
3/4" wooden dowell - 8"
2" hard wood branch - 4"
Strip of plastic (unsure of thickness)
5/8" hole saw
1/4" drill bit ( long)
Step 2: Drilling And Shaping
Drill through the center of the dowel with the 1/4" bit and drill through the hard wood with the 5/8" hole saw. Make sure these holes are centered and straight.
Cut a 2" notch in the dowel as pictured. I'd guess around 12 degrees
Trim the dowel to fit in the 5/8" hard wood snugly and with little gap. A lathe would be handy here!
Round the tip of the dowel as pictured and file the cut smooth.
Shape and round the wood to your liking and comfort.
