Information on duck calls and duck calling tips.
Moderators: Mallyard, stumpjumper, okiequacker, callinfowl
I am new to waterfouling but I have been playing around with a duck call for a while I can produce a hail call and a quack that I am happy with.
So to call ducks what calls do I need to be able to produce?
I have a RNT J-frame and like the sound and I have found a single reed easy to blow. Looking into RNT new Quackhead timber call as well.
Also same question for geese. What sounds do I really need?
I have a really cheap HS goose call and find it hard to to get the sound I like. Sounds out of tune but as I can tell can't be tuned. Does anyone know about the new RNT Quackhead Goozilla.
If people have others choices on calls please let me know. I am not ready to spend hundareds fo dollars on calls yet.

You're not really going to need the hail call in a hunting situation unless you are trying to get the attention of ducks that are far away.
Start off with the quack, then learn to put 4 or 5 quacks together in a string, you don't have to learn the rolling feed call(ticka-ticka-ticka) because it isn't really a feed call, learn to do a more realistic feed call called the cluckin or cuttin style feed. This is a contentment sound that ducks make when on the water or feeding. You say "cook" or "shook" repeatedly to achieve this. Learn to to do a comeback call, lonesome hen.
What I suggest you do is get an instructional cd. The ones I like are the RNT "The Right Stuff" series, and Buck Gardners Strait Talk. Those should get you going in the right direction.

RNT goozilla short reed is quite possibly the best sounding, while being the easiest to blow shoort reed I have used. Give it a go.

Well......like shotguns and musical instruments use what works for you.
Everyone prefers certain shotguns over others cause they work. Musicians use different instruments for the sounds they make. Always remember a duck call or a goose call is an instrument designed to make certain sounds the mimic waterfowl. Sometimes they like a higher pitched single reed call. Sometimes a more moderate tone. Calling ducks is not about making certain sounds its makin the right sounds at the right time.
