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.

Calls can be duck, goose, grunt calls, or any style of “tube” style calls.

Voting:

Calls will be judged by our independant panal of 5 judges. I don’t believe in “FB voting” as a fair way to judge.

In the event of a tie between judges, ties will be broken by being chosen by the business owner.

If you are caught cheating in any way you will be disqualified.

Latest Testimonials

I want to thank you personally for helping me start my call making business. I'm from NC, where there are a select few call makers. I chose the name "Old North Calls", which seemed fitting for our state. I purchased your P2 jig, and I am really liking the sounds that the jig is putting out. With a little tuning, I can get the calls to sound as good as the big name companies (no need to name). Also, I really like the acrylic you our making, so far the "Jack and Coke" has been my best seller. The material turns easy and polishes up beautiful. Thank you once again, you have my business!
                                                      God Bless You and God Bless Waterfowling,

-Caleb Brawley — Old North Calls

I absolutely love my P-1 jig. My calls have really been noticed since I have been making my toneboards with it. I have learned a lot since I bought it. Have developed a raspy and sassy sounding Mallard Hen Call. Thank You for being friendly and informative on the phone!

-Dan. Montgomery Tx.
