Timing

Postby IowaWaterfowler10 » Thu Jun 27, 2013 9:30 am

So I just started to work on a Cajun squeal and was wondering when you guys like to use it? When they are going away, coming towards you, on the corners? Let me hear it!

Thanks guys,
Iowa

I don't really use it at all. At least not the actual super pronounced Cajun squeal. I add a little bit of squeal to the end of some of my last notes of a string occasionally because that is how ducks actually do it, don't over use it though

This...but, I use a bouncing hen more than a Cajun squeal. I would use it anytime you would use a greeting call...whether it be they are going away or when you need to hit them on the corners :thumbsup:

I don't think it is very effective in the field, mainly a trick note to show that it can be done. I might pinch a note off at the end here and there, and usually on a bouncing hen, but thats about it and I only do it to throw a different sound in there. I don't think its put more birds on the strap for me though.

I only use it when I have let the birds fly by, hit a come back and I sneak it in on my second or third sequence IF, and only if, my first sequence was not fruitful...

Those old Cajun dudes weren't blow the squeal to impress other hunters. :no:
They were using it to put meat in the pot.............I mainly throw it at birds as a last resort if I haven't got a response.
Sometimes it works awesome, other days it doesn't work at all...............Trick note ? :lol3:
Do you really think them old boys cared one bit about impressing judges with trick notes ? not :no: but hell :no: !!!

From the stories I hear here in Cajun country, it's a wonder the old timers bothered with calls at all. Maybe a diversion to take the warden's mind off the corn. I know effective callers who mostly use trashy calling from calls with a lot of squeal, like Haydel's dirty rice, but I'm more confident of getting reflex response from disinterested appearing birds with clean, crisp calling. When I get trashy, I've already got 'em by the bill and am amusing myself and, perhaps, my guests.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.
