None in sight?

Maybe a stupid question, but if I set out some dekes, but don't see any ducks around, is it worth calling to maybe get the attention of close-by birds I can't see?

I wouldnt, but the only thing you could hurt would be flaring ducks that are coming in on your blind side.

When no ducks are in sight, many times I'll get on my goose call for a few honks. You'd be suprised how many ducks start showing up.

I call very little, but I noticed this past weekend, that when calling to one flock, another that was out of sight has snuck into my spread while I looked skyward.

I think sometimes it works. Certainly if you're bored it cannot hurt. Just make sure you don't scare any ducks that are already working your decoys. Calling can help them locate you (the hunter).
