Jerry Billy Pendergist and I have been hunting ducks for some 47 years. I don't know exactly why, but for the first 15 or so years I never put a duck call to my lips... never had a hankering for learning to call.
Jerry Billy is the very best caller in these here "U.S.'s of A", and I truly mean that. You can find many a duck hunter to testify likewise.
Eventually, I told Jerry Billy, "I'm going to learn to call ducks for myself." He laughed and handed me an old black P.S. Olt duck call. After asking him which end to blow, I walked into a back room of his cabin and started blowing, to everyone's amazement. They all came running to hear the "First Time King" of duck callers.
Today Jerry Billy Pendergist makes the Snazz Duck Call. And, of course, he has mastered the sound and calling technique. The Snazz duck call was introduced to the public in the late 1980s, and has never been matched in sound and ease of calling. If you don't own a Snazz Duck Call then you just might be missing the last piece of the puzzle.
Lynn Ryan Holler, a Gregory, Arkansas native, was a life long hunting companion of Jerry Billy. Lynn went to be with the Lord in 2014.
