Duck calling instructional CD/DVD

Postby Pavel » Wed Feb 23, 2011 12:38 pm

What are the best instructional duck calling cd/dvds on the market? If anyone has any good links to help me work on my calling, that would be great as well.

What sequence is the best order to learn calling. I think that the basic quack would be first, then.....

Reason I am asking is because don't certain things build on others?

There are a few decent duck calling instructional's out there,but many website have great info in getting started.

Start on quacks then progress to greeting,feed call,hail,come back,lonesome hen.
Practice,practice and then more practice and you will become better and better as a call operator. :thumbsup:

Duck Call Operation by Keith Allen "The Refugeman"
Hobo Calls Duck Dictionary

I've read others that also say RNT's instrctional stuff is good. I have gotten the above mentioned and found that for me Keiths CD gave me the best basic instrction and tips and the Duck Dictionary gave me more to work on later.
Best of luck!
Blessings,

I would have to say the duck dictionary by kent cullum is one of the best dvds around for ducks. As far as online resources, Trevor does a great job on his videos. The rnt CD series is pretty good stuff as well. Just need to find out what works best for you. :thumbsup:

I like the Hobo DVD. that is the only DVD i have seen myself and the RNT cd's are good but i have heard great things about carlsons cd and dvd.
You know your hunting in South Carolina when a bunch of ducks fly in and you shot both of them!!

Thanks for the reply to my post. I think I may get the HOBO duck dictionary. Something to work on in the off season.

It all depends on what kind of call you want to drive (single or double reed) the reason I say this is because you do blow them differently. Here is what helped me and what I haved used and continue to use.

Kieth Allen's - this is a great instructional tool if you want to be using a double reed. You can use it for a single reed but it will not give you the full potential a single reed can achieve!
Barnie Calef calling ducks my way - IMO this is the greatest instructional video to use if you want to get the most out of a single reed duck call. This instructional goes into depth on how to blow both single and double reeds.
Hobo- This is a great instructional but is not for the first timer. Cullum does a great job don't get me wrong but it isn't for the guy who is just starting out.

Remember these are just my opinions and NEVER try to sound like the person you are trying to learn from it will just make you frustrated. The reason I say this is because you could be using a different call, it is tuned different or you may just not blow the call the same way. If it sounds go to you go with it or ask some one good at calling and ask them how you sound.
If that doesn't light your fire, your woods wet!

MN's post is very well put, the instructionals will give you the how and when's, but you will develop your own style of blowing and find the call that fits that style the best. I'll tune a call then get a hunting buddy to listen to it and tell me if it sounds worth a hoot.

I am very new to calling and I found these videos when I was searching for free videos to learn how to call. It maybe a good start, but I can't find follow up lessons after the 5th video in the series. I want to get a reference cd that I can play in the truck so I can practice when I drive around, but I don't know of any good one out there. What do you guys think of the lessons?

Hope it helps a little.

Check out Zink Calls website, they offer an instructional DVD called Waterfowl University. This will give you all the basics you need (the quack, greeting call, feed chuckle, etc...). They also have a CD called Mallards Gone Wild, this is a recording of mallards in the wild that you can listen to and try to duplicate what you hear. I hope this helps.

I just ordered carlson's A to Z cd set with their equalizer call.. The one without the call was $25+a few bucks shipping and with the call $35..and I've heard a few people say that the call is no slouch so I just said screw it and bought the call too. Ive seen plenty of glowing reviews on this cd set and got it so I could practice in my truck on the way to school, or whatever.

That cd of Keith's is a good one to begin with. It's been a long time since I've heard it, but I don't recall it being geared for double reeds. I doubt he was using one when he made it.

Dude, that's you?!?! Dang. I have been watching your videos since you started. Kind of feel like it's a small world. Well, not really in fact since it is the Internet.

I will also recommend Mr. Keiths cd. I thought he simplifies things so it is easy to understand his methods. (Hot air like fogging up your glasses to clean them...)


I will also say Calefs instructional is easy to follow, gets to the nuts and bolts of calling ducks and seems to work well for those that have tried it. I mean... how could it not...? The guy is a 3 time world champ for Gods sake...
