wood duck drake whistle?

Postby hood » Tue Dec 07, 2004 1:47 pm

What call do I need to get to mimic the male wood duck's call. It's sounds like zzzeeep! I've seen duck whistles but none that said it mimics a wood duck. Any suggestions?

i have seen wood duck calls before. Some guys use them as locator calls when turkey hunting. Check around. They got to be out there somewhere.

haydel's woodduck calls

Haydels makes a couple woodduck calls to imitate both the squeal and whine of woodducks. W-81 is the squealer, W-90 is the whine. I have both and they work great.

From mt experience, the squeel call that a hen woodie makes is only done to locate other ducks and when their under stress, such as, when you jump them in a slough. It seems from my experience using them, they don't turn a duck in our direction, but seem to flair them instead. I think the good ole' Mallard call works the best. Like Hood, I've never seen a call that mimics the drake. If there was one out there, (which there probably is) I think it would work better than the hen call. Just my opinion though, Wings cupped, Pete

I got one of those Buck Gardner 6in1 whistles. I could not figure out how to use it for anything any good. Since it fits on my lanyard I used it to get the dogs attention for commands. It seems its a better dog whistle than a duck whistle.

Thanks for the info

I appreciate the replies. I have the basic wood duck call, the one that makes the squeal of the hen. I may just stick with that.

I have a Lohman that makes both sounds. Woodies really don't respond to calls. I think they are one track minded little buggers. I have had success when they were on the water using the squeal, though it could have been just good luck.

Wood Duck Call

Postby willyburnss » Sat Dec 18, 2004 3:24 am

You guys will probably laugh. I've pulled woodies with a dog squeaky toy. Works great for that relaxed hen woodie squeak. The "thweep" whistle sound is harder to mimic correctly. Woodies are all over the slough I am hunting, and just a couple shots on the dog toy help them find the dekes. Goofy but fun. Now all I need is a "suzie" dog toy.

i use a primos 6 in 1 whisle and have had good luck with it. I can make it sound like a whine ive been hunting in one slough and the woodies land in another and ive called them to me. the primos 6 in 1 is a great call. :yes:
