To your guides, Robert Strong and Troy Taylor, waterfowling was never just a hobby. From custom call making to contest calling the season never ends for them, it's a passion and it shows in their never ending attention to detail, to make every hunt as successful as humanly possible. With six state calling titles between them as well as countless victories in other team calling contests, you will immediately take notice to the proficiency in which they operate their calls, and the birds take notice too! Troy Taylor is not only one of the top call makers in the country, but a calling instructor as well. Troy puts on calling seminars during the off season. He has brought his engineering background to the science of calling and call making. The invaluable tips you may pick up during a hunt with us is worth the price of admission alone!
The goal at Ruckus Outfitters is to not only put you on birds, but to show you a great time that you will remember for years to come. If you don't go home a better waterfowler, with your face hurting from smiling and laughing all day, then we didn't do our job! Shooting birds is the easy part....makin’ a Ruckus is the fun part!
