New call Slayer Calls duck cut a ‘differentiator’ on public land

Waterfowl lovers facing wary ducks and competition on public land have a mid-season savior to help them stand out: Pearly Gates’ new acrylic-cut duck call.

EAGLE, Idaho — Slayer Calls has released the Pearly Gates Acrylic Cut Duck Call, designed to help waterfowl hunters overcome the challenges of hunting crowded public land.

“The feeding call in this cut makes that traditional chirp that sounds like a hole full of mallards,” said Bill Ayer, executive director of Slayer Calls. “If you are looking for high pressure areas and need a call to set you apart from the rest of the group, this call will do it.”

For duck hunters frustrated with flocks landing on the decoy stretching downstream, the Pearly Gates Acrylic Cutout Duck Call creates a realistic, direct sound that birds can’t ignore. We’re talking about the classic loud, high-pitched bark that clippings are known for. But unlike other cutting calls, Pearly Gates can show a softer, quieter side.

“What makes this call unique is that we incorporated tried and tested technology into the tone channel that allows the call to be muted, so it can also be subtle when you need to,” Ayer said.

Pearly Gates gives waterfowl hunters a second new call in the Slayer Calls lineup for the 2022-23 duck season, following the release of the open-hole Ranger Single Reed mallard call in September. Pearly Gates is also the company’s second court call; the double-reed Slayer CUTDOWN 00 debuted in 2021.

The Pearly Gates Single Reed Acrylic Cutout Duck Edge comes in Pearl White for $134.99, with custom engraving available for an additional $30. Holiday shoppers can ask for Pearly Gates to arrive before Christmas.
