question about calling

Postby SilverLakehunter » Thu Dec 02, 2004 11:54 pm

OK who practices in their truck or car while driving? I do and when i think about it.....imagine driving down the road and seeing someone in the rig next to you with a duck call.....that would be funny......but the truck is the best place when your going somewhere...

I practice everyday when I drive. Can get the girls too look at you if they ain't already :cool: . My calls are hanging off my rearview right now, but when I get out there, they will be around my neck.

I have at least 2 hours of drive time everyday, and practice 5 days a week. Sometimes after a few hail calls on an RNT acrylic, my ears are ringing when I get out of the truck! The downside is my calling sounds a lot better in my truck to me than it does to the ducks when I'm in the woods or open water! I'm surprised no one has come out with a call specifically for indoor use.... :laughing:
I keep score by the number of times I get to hunt, not by the number of birds we get.

I keep a call with me year round and around my neck from Sept. through Jan. I practice all the time I have for 30 years. I consider myself a ok caller, In another 30 years I will be a good caller.

Duck calling is just like golf everyone practices wacking it off the tee (highball) but the game is won & really lost in the short game and on the green (quacks, clucks & chuckles)

practice your short game while driving. It's easy on your ears and will up your sucess ratio. When you blow a High-ball at a flock of ducks 300 yards away flying 50 MPH in the wind do you really think they hear much of it? I don't , I bet you my buddies dog or my son that they just hear a quack hear and there.

I call in my truck whenever I'm alone driving for a while. I'm in college, so when I head home for a weekend or for the holidays you better believe I'm 12 syllable high ballin' it all the way home. I'm just glad I'm not the only one that does it. If you think about it though, it's really a great place to do it because you don't annoy the heck out of anyone else. However, it would be funny to know what other people think when I pass them, and I have a piece of plastic up to my mouth.
