Ohio native Fred Zink founded Zink Calls in 2001. "I saw a demand - a want - for custom goose and duck calls among both field hunters and competitive callers," said Zink, himself a nationally-recognized goose caller. "That and I wanted very much to promote the sport of hunting within the ranks of our country's young people. We as outdoor manufacturers owe it to ourselves and the hunting community to do everything we can to recruit, educate, and encourage young outdoors people."

Zink's high-end calls and 24/7 DVD series present the ultimate from-the-field outdoor experiences designed for the hard-core hunter, the 'fowler who aspires for that next level in calling and hunting proficiency. "It's my wish," said Zink, "to help today's duck and goose caller be more successful afield, whether that success is translated into birds on the ground or memories to be cherished for a lifetime."

But Zink hasn't created his calling empire alone. "My wife, Dawn," said Zink, "oversees all of the operations of the business. She keeps us all focused, addresses the vital day-to-day aspects of the business, and ensures that Zink Calls always is headed in a positive direction."

With growth often comes physical expansion, and Zink Calls has been no exception. From humble 1,800 square foot beginnings in the town of Clayton, the company relocated to a new 10,000 square foot facility in Port Clinton during the Fall of 2006. Today, Zink Calls is staffed by 10 full-time employees, each specializing in a different aspect of the business including videography, photography, editing, call production and milling, and sales. Once focusing solely on waterfowl-related products, Zink Calls has recently entered both the predator (2008) and turkey (2009) hunting realms.

"This business - the whole of the outdoors - is all about constant innovation and improvement," said Zink. "We are traditionalists, but that doesn't mean we can't upgrade. It's our goal here at Zink Calls to bring outdoorsmen and women the New, the Now, and the 21st Century."

 


 

Carlson Choke Tubes

Carlson’s Choke Tubes are made from the finest corrosion-resistant 17-4 PH stainless steel available. Most factory choke tubes are made of lessor stainless steel, which equates to a choke that won’t hold up to most steel shot loads or heavy buffered shotshells. Steel shot patterns tighter than lead shot. Generally speaking, you will want to use a moreopen choke when shooting steel shot than you would with lead.

heavyhauler2

 In 2001 our mission statement was to make something that not only would last but would also outlast and outperform anything like it you've ever owned. That holds true today, only the best materials available go into this fine product line, resulting in "Outdoor Gear to Last a Lifetime".

Countless hours have been logged by prostaff members testing and trying these products to see what we need to do to make a good product even better. We feel we've been able to accomplish that goal. That doesn't mean we won't continue to improve and make new products, keeping us on the cutting edge and getting you and every outdoorsman the best product money can buy.

 Dave Smith Decoys

The DSD is an ultra-realistic, full-body decoy. They are unique in that they are cast in hollow urethane plastic from rubber molds, as opposed to the conventional method of casting in polyethylene from metal molds. This system allows for a decoy that is highly detailed and anatomically correct. Also, using urethane alleviates the paint adhesion problems associated with the petroleum-based polyethylene used by other manufacturers.

Each decoy is fitted with a wind-activated motion system of our own invention, a system that is quiet, natural, controllable and effective right up to the last day of the season. No rocking, clanking or other unnatural motion that can tip off late season geese. DSDs are manufactured by a group of diehard hunters in a small shop in Oregon where quality control and customer service are #1! We simply refuse to cut corners in our manufacturing process and every sale is backed by friendly, reliable customer service. We care about the quality of our product and take the extra time to inspect every decoy before it leaves. That is why few decoys that leave our shop are ever returned. Our customers recognize the superior advantage our decoy offers in the field while demanding a decoy that is built to last and backed by a solid reputation.

When the NWTF was established in 1973, there were only 1.3 million wild turkeys. Today that number stands at more than seven million birds throughout North America, and hunting seasons have been established in 49 U.S. states, Canada and Mexico.
