Rated BEST double reed duck call by Field & Stream in 2023, this double reed duck call can take as much air as you can blow.

More air means more volume — without compromising the quality of duck sounds. With a wider exhaust, the Ranger Double Reed duck call is one of the loudest on the market while remaining very ducky.

How’d we do it? The Slayer Calls team started with the award-winning Drake Slayer Double Reed and opened up the exhaust, lengthened the tone board, and took out some of the rises. These design changes let hunters put as much air as they want into the call.

Take advantage of the full volume range to adjust the loudness of your call, whether you’re hunting in the field, in timber, or near open water. A well-timed hail can be your ticket to coaxing in a circling flock.

The Ranger’s superior tone from the high end all the way to the bottom grows with callers as they advance their skills. Its double reed construction is more forgiving than a single reed call if the caller doesn’t present the air just right, and it makes for a more ducky call on the lower end.
Experienced duck callers value the control and sophistication they can get from the Ranger with sounds like the bouncing hen, Cajun squeals, hails, and refuge feed.

With its durable, eye-catching acrylic barrel, the Ranger is a showstopper that’s ready to go wherever you call the wild.

Slayer gives 10% from each purchase to organizations that protect the environment and wildlife, support conservation efforts, and preserve America’s hunting heritage.

    This call has an amazing squeal to it! Amazing top end, bottom end, it’s got rasp to make it sound like a duck with NO grunt required! I was hesitant on getting an expensive call like this. But I would 100 buy another just to have on my backup lanyard. I love this call and will recommend to anyone! ALSO the blue wing one just looks sick nasty 👀🔥🥵

    Really easy call to blow still working on trying to get the right sound from it the difference between the cheap low end calls vs this call is night and day difference but other than that highly recommended

    I have been hunting waterfowl for over 25 years and have owned more than 10 ducks calls. I have purchased cheap and expensive calls hoping for a call that would perform in the worst conditions of Utah weather. None of them have performed to my expectations. I researched slayer calls and read only positive reviews. I was willing to give it a try. The pricing for the Ranger was more expensive than a typical call found in the store but well worth the price. No cracking, sticking, or freezing at all. After two hunts I was convinced and so were my sons and brother. They have all purchased a slayer call since my first purchase and they have no complaints. I highly recommend their calls. I don’t remember the last time I wrote a review for a product. Says a lot about slayer! 😀 As a perk the call looks great!

    Got this as a graduation gift for a friend. It arrived well packaged with a helpful video on how best to call. It was beautiful designed and 3 folks at the graduation party got to try it out. Beautiful, unique sound that truly replicates a real bird. Excellently created. Now I’m bummed I don’t have my own!

    Bought a custom pink call for my girlfriend with her name engraved and I was so impressed with the quality and sound that I have now stole it and refuse to give it back to her. 10/10 best call I’ve ever heard. You will NOT be disappointed!!!!

    This call is immaculate looking I fell in love with it the moment I laid eyes on it and it looks even better in person. Calling is very easy as well blows easier than most double reeds I’ve had. I’m glad I found these calls and will definitely buy more….. 10/10

  8. Tim Kershner

    Love this call! Sounds great and looks awesome too. I’m a novice duck hunter so I didn’t think I’d hear much of a difference going from a plain-Jane plastic to an acrylic call, but holy cow, worth the $$! I’ve tried all the other popular calls, and this is my go-to every time now.

    This call is easy to blow and sounds good. It is now my go to on my lanyard. Shopping was fast and customer service has been the best I have experienced. They follow up to make sure everything this going well. I will be a repeat customer.

    I purchased the ranger double reed and I love it. The product is high quality and delivers a high quality sound

  11. Tyler Suchomel (verified owner)

    While being more expensive than other beginner duck calls. This call is completely worth it because of its ease of use and great sounds.

  12. Scott Bergsieker

    Fantastic sounding and looking calls! I own every variation from the Drake Slayer to the Ranger to the Pearly Gates and rotate my lanyard based on the conditions and volume needed. The quality is top notch and all are very easy to blow.! The Ranger is great for open water when extra volume is needed to reach the birds, however, the call is very versatile and still get low enough to finish ducks up close.

  13. Jerod (verified owner)

    This call was easy to use and looks great. The sound worked well and I called in a limit on opening day. I would say it was worth every penny. I’ll buy from Slayer again for sure!

  14. David Harris (verified owner)

    My 7yr old fell in love with this call at a sportsman expo and can stop blowing it. Very user friendly easy to do quacks, hail calls, and feeder calls. Highly recommended for anyone type of duck caller from beginner to expert. Thanks to Slayer for making an awesome product!!

  15. Marcus Skinner (verified owner)

    Loud and easy to blow call, with excellent fit and finish. Top notch customer service. I was so impressed with my order from Slayer that I order two other calls not long after. Looking forward to hunting with this call in the coming season.

    Before I had the ranger double reed, I had a normal store bought cheap duck call since I assumed it was good enough, but I wanted to upgrade since it kept jamming up when I gave it air. And the first time I blew into the ranger I actually laughed at the difference between calls. I would buy a new ranger call every year instead of going back to what I had before. The ranger is the most impressive call I have ever heard and used 10/10.

  17. Dillon (verified owner)

    Being someone who constantly hunts open water this is my go to call. It can get way up there but also finish ducks when you need to. I also own a Drake slayer that I will usually pull out to finish birds. If you are someone that hunts birds you can see along way I wouldn’t look any further than the ranger. Great quality, sound, and the colors look amazing.

    The first hunt I used this call on we killed a 7 man of mallards. To say I hammered on this call on its first outing is an understatement. Love the versatility I have with this call going soft or just flat screaming through it, it handles whatever air I throw at it making it super easy!

  19. Ian Foster

    Best duck calls I’ve ever used. My order got sent out late (not a big deal at all, it was 2 days) but they threw in a hat because of it! Awesome customer service!

  20. Erik Russell (verified owner)

    This call belts out sound! Really easy to use and comfortable to call with. The Ranger can hit all different depths and ranges making it very versatile. The ducks are definitely going to think you are one of them. Highly recommend this call. I’ll be checking out some of slayers other calls also.

  21. Gregg Erickson (verified owner)

    Love the sound, easy to reach varying tones from highball to low pitch feeding calls. I wanted a call that made soft, finishing tones and this one does it. Also can crank it up and fill the air with a high-pitch comeback. The feel in-hand is very good and fits my grip. I wanted a larger barrel than what I typically have used and this call does it. I’ve been impressed this past season with it.

  22. Vann Slatter (verified owner)

    Awesome call, awesome sound and appearance. Very well made!! Worked great on cold foggy days, didn’t get stuck or squeal. On the clear days it turned birds that seemed to be almost a mile off. Great clear loud sound. Chuckling and hailing it had the attention of all the birds around. I look forward to buying one of every call from Slayer. I would highly recommend the ranger double reed! My Grandmother and I haven’t had a dull shoot since we got it

  23. Jason Hargrove (verified owner)

    My son literally looked at me and said dad “I can’t stick this thing and it’s a double reed !”the aesthetics and the sound floored him , “ this thing is loud “ he said , thank you Santa and thank you Slayer !
    Definitely won’t be his last slayer call !

    There are so many calls on the market that “look” good but don’t have the tonal quality that allows for depth of range and control over varying hunting scenarios. We hunted over large bays that required louder presentations and also small inlets and flooded tributaries where softer calling was necessary. This call was so easy to blow form the start allowing for great control, easy manipulation of tones, and finally gave us the low tones we needed for the drake mallards. The hail calls are crisp, sharp and have strong finishes leaving me feeling like I’m still in control and not literally sending a last ditch “Hail Mary” at the birds. We saw some great reactions from the birds which provided for some amazing shot opportunities and most importantly memories with my boys that will never be forgotten!

    I am new to duck calling and came across this call after extensive research online. I was skeptical at first but thought if a company pairs instructional videos (Call the Wild) with their calls, they have to be good. I can honestly say this call was phenomenal over the last two weekends for me as it never seized despite how much air I put through it and had a great sound quality. I would definitely recommend this to friends and family.

  26. Brandon Epping (verified owner)

    I’m actually super impressed with not only the sound of this call but how comfortable it is to blow. Excellent quality call and couldn’t have shipped any faster. I’m going to order a wooden one as well and an acrylic ranger for my son. I own several calls and this one has earned the go to spot on my lanyard for now. Only thing I’d ask for is different solid color acrylics as well. I do like this green marsh but it’s a bit flashy for my taste. Thanks for such a great product and definitely will buy more .
