25th Anniversary Mallard Duck Call
Here ye, hear ye! The Best Mallard Duck Call!
I first met Buck Gardner in 1996 at the Waterfowl USA Celebrity Duck Hunt in Stuttgart Arkansas. Buck had recently competed in, and won, the 1995 World Duck Calling Champion of Champions contest. During the dinner prior to the event’s first day of hunting, Buck was asked to the podium where he reenacted the series of calls that won him the world championship. That night, Buck used a cream color, acrylic call with a brass fitting over the barrel. A very humble looking duck call, with his signature lightly engraved. The circumstances are a bit fuzzy, but I ended up with that call, and still use that very call today. This little treasure became mine likely because I kept raising my hand every time the auctioneer yelled, “last and final call.” The next morning in a duck blind over a rice field, I was informed that I had bid against myself at least 8 times. I guess that is one way to make sure yours is the winning bid.
I reached out to Buck recently and retold him this story…he graciously chuckled as if he remembered that night in detail. And that conversation led us to this: A remake of that humble Mallard Duck call and a matching Canada Goose call, to commemorate the Atlantic Rancher Company’s 25th year Anniversary. Only 50 of each will be produced. If you are interested in particular number, please email or call us and we’ll reserve your number if it's available.
