Nice goldfish. I'm working on bouncing hen and Cajun squeal this summer. It's my goal anyways. Hillbilly you sounded good when I hunted with ya. I'd tell ya to put your call away if it was needed.

For the bouncing hen I just do "ta-kaa", and I don't really ever try the cajun squeal, but I've done it by just closing my lips at the end inside the call (if that makes sense).

I'm no pro. There are plenty of guys here who can school me in a second, but I like learning calls and sharing what helped me.

Sounds good to me. I like the softer higher pitch calls myself, I've had good luck with that in the past. Nice wood duck call, have you had success turning woodducks with that? Ive tried but havnt, i also dont see alot of wooducks in the spots i hunt. When I got time I'll figure out the u tube photo bucket thingy and post mine.

The thing about wood ducks is you need their attention before they get past you. Also, the "beu-WEEEE" is an in the air call, not on the water call. It's an attention grabber, but you don't want to use it trying to land other birds. You just do the "Pyeww" or the hen "brrrrssssht". I've called back and forth with birds and gotten them to come check me out, but never turned them like mallards. I swear those things have too much A.D.D. for that as they are either seeing you and all of a sudden kamikaze bomb in, or they get past you and something shiny on the other side of just over there gets their attention.

I didn't see the link until just now. Do you add voice to the call, or just air? To me something sounds a little off, but I know recording the sound isn't the best way to actually see how it sounds in the field. I like, scratch that, love Mike's goose calls, but I've never been a big fan of his duck calls. I can tell you that it'll work for ducks though. When I was in Canada I heard a live duck sound worse than any weekend hack I've heard down here. Blew my mind, and kinda pissed me off to know that Johnny Jackwagon who just picked up a call could successfully pull birds, lol.

I had to personally turn my volume up high to hear it, sound quality off my phone isn't great - gets kind of an echo in the house but its better than nothing I suppose..

oh and that one is on a Hobo Prime Meat.

Been using voice kind of. Still trying to figure out what to use. Went from hut to ten to what and now I'm kind of just using a heavy T sound and trying to work on coming from my abs.

I have noticed I will have times where I seem to be getting good sound and others it is noticably off. Don't know if it is because I am in the car (also where it was recorded) or if my mouth position or air flow/pressure is off.

Or maybe it is my newness and the fact that it is a single reed.

I know I need practice so I don't mind any and all help.

I actually want to try and find my old cheapo from younger days and see if that sounds any better but the kids seem to have lost it.

Ah, that might be it as to why it sounds different. I am yet to master single reeds myself.

I have been meaning to listen to all of them. The only one I heard is goldfish. Sounded 100 times better than me. This last year I learned to do the feeding call kind of. Bouncing hen is my goal this year. I'll post a clip of mine and listen to the rest.

It sounds flat to me when you are running a single reed everything needs to stay pressurized or if falls flat. Like said already get some voice inflection in there and push air up from your diaphragm almost like a whistle you need to push a burst of air through the call. Try this trick especially when your running a single. it helped me when I was sounding flat. Lay flat on your back and run your call it will sound different and be harder to run if you are just running straight air. When you are laying on your back it requires you to concentrate and locate more on where to bring the air from. Your feed needs to be spaced out and more of a tic.......tic...tic.tic....tic but remember to keep the call pressurized or else your feed falls flat as well. Singles are a devil sometimes because you can run flat super quick! The devils in the details when running a single.

GF--nice job you have what I call a lazy tongue because you let that last little bit of air squeak through and get a natural squeal at the end and I love how that sounds. I can never get that natural squeal in a call because when I quack or do my cadences I hammer the roof of my mouth with my tongue and cut the note off quick. Everything was good your feed needs to be spaced out more. Unless you are putting out a thousand decoys space it out tic...tic tic.........tic tic tic...just pecking at the call like a duck would.

PS nice wood duck!

I'll post mine...Ive been calling about 4-5years...Cadences are my Achilles heel and I can never seem to get them to sound right to me. Anyways I'm running a Keith Custom calls Trance it's a single reed that I absolutely love (just wish he would start spinning calls again) here are two videos just goofing around. They were done in the kitchen so there is some echo!

I have considered just driving to Mikes shop and having him put a double reed in the call as well.
