    Is there any account/information regarding who was the first duck call maker? There is a thread on the main Duck Hunters forum asking what is the oldest call you own. How far back do duck calls go?:scratch

    Elam Fisher was the 1st to patent a duck call in 1870. I am sure there might have been some calls that hunters made for themselves before then but I think Fisher gets the credit for the earliest.

    Here is a link to Mallard222 collection. I beleive he said in a previous post that he has a bunch of them. I have 4 or 5.

    They're not hard to find in general, with the exception of a stamped one. Very few of them exist.
