David Gaston considers himself most fortunate to have grown up in
a hunting community. He has been an avid hunter since he was a very young boy,
enjoying the outdoors as an extension of who he is. Living near the Alabama
River afforded him the opportunity to experience duck hunting, and instilled a
lifelong connection to the outdoors.
After first making turkey calls, David decided to try his hand at
duck calls, just to see if he could. Nearly thirty years later, David’s
duck calls are world renowned for their craftsmanship and intonation. His
custom calls have won numerous duck calling competitions and are used around
the world. His calls are made from wood and acrylic. David’s favorite
wood for his duck calls is bois d’ arc (commonly called mock orange). He says a
hunter’s experience is the only way to get the correct tone for an effective
call. It takes a true call-maker to hear and feel the perfect tone.
