The RNT Hancock Checkered call is a tribute to call maker Clyde Hancock. Clyde, 1948 World Duck Calling Champion was a legendary hunter, caller, and call-maker (1920's-50's) from Stuttgart, AR. He made a great patterned checkered call and a smooth style call. These are open water style calls, with or without checkering. This is the ultimate one call that will do it all. This call was designed to be easy for the average caller to operate. Made to produce a wide range of sounds both soft, low, loud, and raspy. And built to last and withstand the harshest, coldest, wettest, nastiest weather brought on by the almighty duck gods. Simple. Versatile. Dependable. This is the way it is and will always be.
