 Watkins Duck Calls

Brian Watkins is no stranger to waterfowl hunting and making calls. Since the age of 12, he has been making duck calls. He recently finished college with a bachelor's degree in fisheries science from VA Tech and is currently employed full time with the Virginia Institute of Marine Science. During the day his job keeps him busy field sampling different portions of the Chesapeake Bay. But in the evenings and on weekends you can find him in the shop making calls.

 

Brian takes orders for his calls and makes then from both domestic as well as imported exotic hardwoods. His domestic woods feature cherry, walnut and maple. His exotics species vary a great deal and availability is a key concern for these woods. It's best to address special interests direct with Brian. All his inserts are produced from Macasar Ebony or Cocobolo.

 

Brian's calls are fashioned after the single reed Arkansas style call. The majority of his calls are hunting style calls, which now feature brass bands on the barrel. Collector grade calls are a step above the standard hunting call. These calls in most cases are either checkered or laminated. Each call whether field grade or collector grade receive an oil, lacquer, or polished finish and are sequentially numbered. Brian takes pleasure in working with his customer to make that special call that suites the need of the buyer just right.

Like many call makers Brian Watkins takes great pride in his calls and guarantees them for the life of the original owner.
