Ebay has a listing for a cue and duck call business for sale in Memphis area. Is this Bill McDaniels? He is the only cue maker I know who also makes duck calls and he is located in Tennessee.

Tom, I think the listing said the seller was from Olive Branch, not necessarily the shop. Bill had someone else sell his goods on Ebay I believe.

I just heard from a friend of Bill McDaniels who just spoke to him that it definitely is NOT Bill. I am the only person I know who collects both cues and duck calls and I can't imagine who else it could be. I thought McDaniels was the only maker of both.

And, oddly enough, his late father, Red Meucci, made duck calls (Mutone), but that was in the late 1940s and they weren't made of turned wood.
