bud i have been reading these forums for a while and the consesus is you really dont need to call to kill ducks like said before be on the X and if they want to be there they will come. You can have all of your expensive calls and decoys and i will use about 10 mallard dekes and let my calls sit in the car and watch the birds fly in because that is where they want to be. If you ever hunt public land you will understand exactly why no calling is better than throwing hail calls and everything else you can think of at those ducks. This is the exact reason by birds are call shy because everyone and their brother is calling to them trying to get in. I normally hunt on my own out at Cedar Creek Lake in Stanford and i will not call at all when i go because it is useless if the bird want to be there it will come if it doesnt you can all until you are blue in the face and watch it fly off just like everyone else. Hate to sound like a prick but most of the people will agree its not all about calling.
You ever hunted Bayou Meto?

Ive been in flooded corn fields with the decoy spread looking flawless, motin in the water, everyone well hid in the pit, and some impressive duck calling to top it off and have ducks just look and keep flying and struggling to just end the day with a few ducks on my tote. but on my best hunts ive had only a couple of decoys set out and never using a call and could not beat the ducks off with a stick. I have been walking in the decoy spread and have ducks light beside me.If a duck has a predetermined mindset to be in a certain spot, then it is going to go there! as far as having a well trained retreiver to help you kill ducks ...... .......its just nice to have one of them so my lazy *** doesnt have to get out of the blind to get the duck and i can eat some eggs and sausage that kydrake has cooked in the blind

Most of the time if the ducks are coming right to you then you don't need to call unless you do a few quacks and chuckles but I wouldn't even do that until I see wingtips and tail feathers. As for decoys...I am using the same decoys my dad gave me 5 years ago, with no new paint and old as can be and we are still killing ducks. Equipment...I can make my 20 dollar haydels double reed mallard sound just as good as somebody else RNT
