Pintail Waterfowl manufactures custom and public duck call jigs for use in custom call making of duck calls and goose calls. Our duck call jigs are made from steel, hardened to 60 rockwell, then sandblasted for a nicer finish and many years of use. What makes our duck call public jigs stand out from other public jigs on the market, is instead of just cutting a radius on a jig and selling it, we prototyped a custom call jig and released it as a public jig. This means you can have a finished toneboard with minimal work which makes it easier for beginners but there is still plenty of room to make the sound your own for veteran call makers. Pintail Waterfowl also offers a flat or blank jig. This jig allows for you to cut your own radius then have it hardened. It is essentially a custom jig for the do it yourselfer. The jig separates into two pieces for easy access for cutting. We soon will be offering poly carbonate inserts as well!
Pintail Waterfowl also offers custom cast call blanks. We have pre-cast colors available in our store or can custom cast any color acrylic you would like. We even have glow in the dark duck call blanks. We offer our barrel blanks with the 5/8″ hole already cast in them. Our insert blanks already have a 5/8″ tenon. This speeds up call making and requires less tools to make calls. We can also custom cast solid acrylic rod with or without the 5/8′ hole, in two diameters.
We are starting a new tradition with a call making contest. This is a TWO PART contest. To Enter, email us a picture of your best call to Ryan@pintailwaterfowl.com, made using Pintail Waterfowl Acrylic Blanks. You need to include your name with the picture.

We will pick the top 5 calls entered to be semi finalists. Semi finalists will be chosen on October first and blanks sent out that week. Semi finalists will receive a free matched set of our choosing, to be made into a call for the finals.
Rules for the finals calls will be, use the acrylic to make a call of your style and choosing. You may laminate it with other acrylic and other wood. You can make any type of waterfowl call you choose. You do NOT have to use one of our jigs.

Have been making calls for 10 years and decided to take the next step making my own inserts. Great jig was frustrated at first but it has taught me a lot how calls work and should sound. Thanks Pintail for a great product.
