The swamp bore is a specialized call for those hunting spots which require a quite, soft sounding call.  It is a single reed call, and like the original resists sticking due to moisture.  This call is meant for meat calling in the swamp, timber, or mountain stream and produces the muffled tones of the hen mallard.  This call can not be blown too loud.  This call is slightly smaller in size than the original.

The hybrid swamp bore is the swamp bore's big brother.  This call retains the tone of the original swamp bore, but is slightly louder and has the ability for mid-range top end.  This call has become a favorite of meat callers due to tone, range, ease of use, and reliability in the field.  It takes very little air to run these calls and due to the high reed set the calls don't stick.

This call is available in a variety of woods or stabilized woods.  Like the original these calls come with brass or aluminum bands.  They are individually signed and dated.
