A few years ago I stood looking at a pile of cut offs from my call making efforts and was wondering what could I do with them, The wood is pretty expensive that us call maker types use so I really just didn’t want to chuck it into the fire place on the patio.
My son Hunter was in Cub Scouts at the time and I thought I could make him a neckerchief slide out of some of that wood so it would look like a mini duck call. After it was done I got to thinking that making a real call of a very small size would be the coolest thing to try. Well after much trial and error I got the lil buggers figured out, Named them Baby Magnums or Baby Mags after the short shotgun shells used for water fowling during the 60′s. One thing has led to another and now they are some of my best selling calls. Do not be fooled by the size, These calls have full size soundboards and reeds in them so they sound much bigger than they look. Folks have their children’s names inscribed on them along with date of birth.
I have some folks that hunt with them and love them. Most are around 2 3/4 inches long, Some a bit longer but can also be made a bit shorter. There is really no limit to what can be done in making one of these except imagination, The examples of these are to the left of the page, To see a bunch more duck calls please feel free to visit my web page at http://www.kellyskalls.com/
