Rated BEST double reed duck call by Field & Stream, the Drake Slayer is versatile and easy-to-use. Great for beginners and experts.
Honker Goose Call
I've got the Honker Goose call in addition to a double reed Drake Slayer call. The Drake Slayer is very user-friendly/easy to learn on, one I would recommend to any hunter across different levels of experience. I am impressed with the versatility of tone from low and soft quacks, to crisp hail and feeder calls. I'm now looking at picking up their bocote wood call and customizing it with both a band engraving and a logo (love that Slayer offers these options). On their website, Slayer has also included sound profiles, so you do get a general idea of the quality of sound/range these calls project. Regarding the Honker Goose call, this is my very first goose call so I'm very much looking forward to learning how to master the art with this particular call. Overall, great quality products - it certainly doesn't hurt that they're easy on the eyes and definite head turners to both ducks and humans alike. Also, it appears Slayer is working on launching some elk calls. Being an archery hunter in Colorado, I am super excited to see what they have in store.
I’m impressed with the Mallard Reaper! I already had a Drake Slayer and I wanted a second I could just keep in my truck to practice with when driving. It’s definitely going on my lanyard for hunting. It won’t be limited to practice. Durable. Great price. Amazing sound. Absolutely love it.
Drake Double Reed
This is a well made and good looking call. I am relatively new to calling, and I find I can get credible ducky sounds out of it with just a little practice and study. I got the call too late to use it this year, but just think how good I will sound next duck season with the whole year to practice.
Brilliant! No other way to put it. I ordered the Suzie Slayer Double Reed and the Drake Slayer Single Reed. I started off messing around with the Drake Slayer. The acrylic is beautiful and the tone of the calls is amazing. Then, I finally opened the box and pulled the Suzie Slayer out of its pouch. The pictures online do zero justice to how beautiful the bocote wood actually is in real life! I just wanted to hang it from the mantle, like a family heirloom. It was hard to put it to my mouth and blow notes into it. My thoughts were that using the Suzie Slayer would depreciate this masterpiece. I had to though. I needed to hear it in all its glory! I was happy I had gotten some warm-up on the Drake Slayer because I was greatly rewarded with the notes and tones that the Suzie let escape as I worked her to the best of my ability! Oh I could picture these quacks reaching greenheads through the cold marshes and getting them to turn towards my spread! The Drake Slayer is a great call, but this masterpiece, this Suzie Slayer, will be my go to call this season.
The Ranger duck call features a wider exhaust and longer tone board, allowing it to take in more air. More air means more volume!
