Several years ago I bought a duck call from Bob Hill of Wyandotte MI.  I am trying to locate him.  Has anyone ever heard of him or better does anyone have any information about his whereabouts?

When I started duck hunting I used the mallardtone, olt and then the duck commander.  As soon as I bought my first handmade, using the mass produced was over.  I have had several but my favorite is the call I bought from Bob Hill, it is an African blackwood call.  I have a Cocabola call from Roy Rhoades that is real sweet and I have a Bois de Arc (sp?) Taylor Made call that never sticks, this is the only call I have ever had that just will not stick no matter how cold it is.  All of my calls are single reeds. I even have some brass reed calls, but have never used them ( they sounded good before I bought them).

Yes, it is real nice to be a waterfowler in arkansas this time of year, hugging a big oak tree with the mallards splashing water on you as they land.  GET EM BOYS!!!

I have met Phil...he was a guest at one of our DU banquets several years ago. 

Where in Missouri are you going?  You should slide on down to Arkansas for a hunt.

Tavo, I know we have given each other grief, all in fun of course.  But when are you going to be in town (KC)?  I live in Overland Park and if you want, we could hook up for a brew or two.   :twisted:  I am going to PA from 12/21 to 12/28, thus being out of town during that time.  Let me know either here or PM me.     
Shoot straight and dropem where they stand!

Travo, I don't know how much time you have but if you are willing to drive over to the northeast arkansas you have an invitation. No guarantees on the ducks but it has been good so far this year.
