Charley Heiges has been obsessed with the
sport of waterfowl hunting since he was a child. In the 1970's Charley
started collecting duck calls. He swore he would stop when he reached
his goal of 100 but still to this day he is collecting them. After
studying each call he collected he would ten years later create
what is now know as the Fowl Foolers Call.
Charley has divided his calls into four different
sounding duck calls and two different goose calls. Each would blow
with varying degrees of air pressure or skill levels. The calls
are listed in the order of the ease of blowing and controlling them
as well as their loudness.
Captain Charley Heiges is the current and
two-time Ohio State Calling champion and was fourth in the Grand
American Metal reed calling contest held at Reelfoot Lake in the
heart of Metal reed country. Since 1982 he has produced 3,000 calls
and produces 1,000 annually. Wood types used are walnut, cherry,
maple. He also uses some plastic inserts and plastic reeds (metal
reeds are coming soon). Charleys goal is to satisfy the needs of
the largest number of duck and goose hunting callers, with skill
levels that the average hunter can accomplish with ease.
