Slayer Calls supports exceptional calling habits for beginners with new duck call
The Mallard Slayer Double-Reed’s quality design promotes proper technique for hunters learning to call, leading to better lifelong habits.
Developed to make learning good calling habits easy for new duck hunters, Slayer Calls introduces the new Mallard Slayer Double-Reed to help hunting novices.
“Many beginners start with a cheap option and, in doing so, develop poor calling habits that are hard to undo,” Slayer CEO Bill Ayer said. “Getting the right call from the start builds a solid foundation for becoming a great caller.”
The Mallard Slayer builds on the design of the Drake Slayer Double-Reed — the call that took Ayer 10 years to perfect as the all-around best duck call on the market. The call doesn’t compromise on quality so new hunters learn without picking up bad habits, such as:
- Weak breath: A cheap call is often too easy to blow, so the caller never masters stabilizing the diaphragm and abdominal muscles to aid in strong lung control.
- Poor hand placement: Calls without proper back pressure mean that a caller likely won’t learn to alter chamber pressure with their hands.
- Immobile tongue: When a call can’t make a variety of sounds, it discourages the hunter from experimenting with tongue positioning — the key to unlocking a range of calls.
- Larynx overuse: A caller may overuse their larynx, almost grunting, to compensate for a cheap call that isn’t built to sound ducky on its own.
The waterfowl call uses a DuPont Delrin soundboard, just-right back pressure and Slayer’s signature design for a call that sounds like a dream and promotes good habits from Day 1.
“You don’t want a bad call on your lanyard,” Ayer said. “Like a bad pair of boots breaks down your feet over time, a bad call will take its toll. Keep your lanyard dressed to a tee to create good habits for a lifetime.”
The Slayer team began developing the call following a round of funding from investors Matt Rissell and Brandon Zehm earlier in 2021. The Mallard Slayer Double-Reed duck call for beginners is 100% made in America and available on SlayerCalls.com.
