DUEL Micro Cottontail Distress Call Description
Calling game has been around virtually as long as man. Surely it started with man using his own voice to mimic the sounds of animals. Eventually, he developed tools to aid in this effort. These tools have evolved into the calls we use today.
Single chamber calls are not as realistic and lack dimension. Game calls available today all project sound through a single sound chamber. The problem with this is that the sound they produce lacks "dimension". It's like mono sound compared with stereo sound and it's simply not as realistic.
Animals project sound through two chambers and so should your call. Animal vocalisation (including human) begins with initial air pressure from the lungs which is projected in the form of an air pressure wave. This wave is "filtered" or spectrally shaped along the way in the vocal tract via the contraction of muscles. The vocal tract splits in two, forming the nasal cavity (nose/nostrils) and oral cavity (throat/mouth). While the oral cavity does far more sound articulating than the nasal cavity, the nasal cavity is vital for adding resonance.
Take the "plug-your-nose test" to hear the difference. To hear for yourself the quality difference between single chamber and dual chamber sound, simply plug your nose and talk. Your single chamber voice sounds completely different. Now imagine what single chamber calls sound like to the animal. With single chamber calls you'll sound like you're calling with a cold.
Only DUEL Game Calls make dual chamber sound! DUEL Game Calls project sound through two chambers, just like a real animal. This patented Dual Chamber Technology results in a fuller, more dynamic sound because it's anatomically more accurate and vocally more realistic. And to the animal, a more realistic sound is more convincing!
Nothing fools an animal better than an emotional call.
You just can't get emotion with an electronic call. That's why veteran predator callers use hand calls.
And nothing sounds as real as a DUEL Predator Call with Dual Chamber Technology. Convince more predators with a DUEL!
Projects sound through two separate cavities for more realistic, convincing calling. One cavity produces throat or mouth sound, second cavity emits a nose sound.
DUEL's Dual Chamber Technology project sound through two separate chambers. This emulates the oral and nasal cavities through which sound is projected by real animals.
The result is a totally robust, resonating sound that's better at convincing game you are real!

At DUEL, they feel strongly that American made means American grade, higher quality and made with pride by workers who understand the product and are beneficial to our economy. That's why DUEL is proud to say that all DUEL Game Calls are made in America.

Keep a watchful eye out in all directions, stay hidden and keep movement to a minimum. If an animal comes in while you are calling, it's best to stop and let him come in close. If he stops too far out, a few short calls will usually bring him closer.
Place the call in the "V" between your thumb and index finger. Close your remaining fingers around the call, forming a loose fit. By opening and closing your fist as you use the call, you reproduce the sounds distressed Cottontails make as they open and close their mouths while calling.
Whines - Gently blow into the call. Each call is about two to three seconds in length. Blow in a series for 10-30 seconds creating a "Waaaaaaaaaaa-waaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" sound.
Screams - The Cottontail's distressed scream is a loud, continuous and uncontrolled call. Each call is about two to three seconds in length. Blow in a series loudly for 10-15 seconds and repeat. Use the scream to gain the predator's interest from both short and long distances.
Hands free - For right-handed shooters, insert the call in the left side of your mouth at an angle. For left-handed shooters, insert the call in the right side of your mouth at an angle. Practice this and then draw your bow to ensure that you have proper clearance before shooting.
Night calling can give very good results because this is the time most predators do their hunting. Calling at night is illegal in some areas. Be sure to check out the game laws before calling.
Predator calling, like any other form of hunting, will have good and bad days, so don't give up too easily. This call is inexpensive but effective and over time you will improve your technique.
Warning - DUEL Micro Cottontail Distress game calls are so accurate that you might attract other hunters, as well as game. So keep your eyes wide open at all times during operation of the call.
This is what people have said about the DUEL Micro Cottontail Distress Call.
5 out of 5 stars. "Great Volume. Love this call. I have 3 other brands I use and this one seems to grab their attention better than the others. As mentioned in the title, it has wicked volume, and seems to be less prone to freezing up in the Winter. When calling, I don't rely on just one call, as each one is different, and I like to mix it up, but this one is my go to call." From coyotekiller from USA
