Could someone please explain call set up? Like what is the difference between a heavy tuned vs light tuned call? Also, where do the manufacturers generally tune their calls as far as set up? For instance, I am overpowering my MVP and having a hard time backing off enough to maintain a long hail. Would I benefit from a "heavier" tuned call? Thanks.

Most has to do with the reed. If you are overblowing the call, put a longer reed in it :thumbsup:

Have a question when you tune your call you are wanting that fine medium where your hail call sounds good and you can still do a feed . With me seems when I tune it way I like for hail the feed just is not consistant likes to lock up, and vise versa

What call are you using? The right call should be where you have both good hails , feeds , and ducks. The only problems i could think would be caller error , not being experience in tuning calls , or a call that doesnt have what it takes. If the call is one of the top names I would look into the other two examples and you can probably work it out

As far as tuning, trial and error is a big part. Each call is different. Here is a good instructional on tuning duck calls...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NkWcbjUFsOo

As far as getting started, PM me and I can help you out with what I know. A good source to look at is callingducks.com :thumbsup:

It just depends. The big thing is to have duck and you don't want the call to sound thin.

Yea iv noticed sometimes it sounds kinda tin like , sort of like the reed is popping or somthing . That maybe due to needing a new reed im not sure if you could even here that from a distance

How many of you guys actually hear ducks that chuckle like most people tend to do? I hear mallards all the time because I have 100 or so living by my house, and pintails do the same when they fly over head chasing each other, but nothing ever so rapid. I think if a duck is close enough to hear a feed chuckle its time to shoot. Just IMO

Well everybody has there diiferent ways to call ducks in the woods. There is a million ways and theories to work ducks. But in Comp calling its not anything you would do in the field , its displaying how well you can control and master a call. So alot if the calls in Comp are exagerated.
