OUR story

Raggio Mercantile

The Man. The Myth. The Legend.

Raggio Custom Calls provide waterfowlers with unique, one-of-a-kind instruments. Our handmade duck calls combine the traditional aesthetics of heirloom-quality materials with true custom craftsmanship.

The result is the perfection of the indelible sounds of wild skies.

The reward is the satisfaction of owning and using a time-honored tool that converses as easily with ducks as it speaks to our unforgettable memories by field and flood. 

And, so, the friends and family of Raggio Custom Calls understand that waterfowling supersedes mere sport. Yes, certainly, ducks on the strap are worthy aspirations. But it is the history and the rich tradition born of wetlands – of great shooting, unforgettable retrievers, the epics of ducks in flight; of new friends made and the love and respect of lifelong hunting buddies – that is the real sum of our parts. 

Integrity, passion, commitment: Raggio Custom Calls is not content to follow the paths most traveled. Raggio calls are trailblazers designed to bring ducks right down through the very headwinds of time.

Call Maker

“There are essential sounds that every duck-master must learn. Whether it is the basic quack, the greeting call, the feed call, the hail call, the comeback call, the call of a lonesome hen, or the pleading call–avid duck hunters should have these in their repertoire.

Josh Raggio, owner and creator of Raggio Custom Calls, has mastered them all with the help of his own one-of-a-kind handcrafted duck calls made in his Raymond shop.”
