You can take in way more when you don't have the distraction of a gun in your hand. I'm fortunate enough that I work on the water and am ALWAYS watching the birds and the sounds they are making while coming and going. I think I learn more during the off season than with a gun in my hand.

I got the Buck Gardner beginner call CD and I would listen to it and blow my call in my truck. Dont mess with the call, its tuned fine. The problem is the novice caller. And listen to the instructions exactly. Adjust to you hunting needs (I dont think I have ever had luck with a hail call). It will feel weird at first but it falls into place. Do what the experts say and practice. For goose calling I got the Lynch mob DVD and it is awesome. I met George at the Cabelas thing one year he was awesome. Perfect practice makes perfect.
I have shot ducks with no calling, I have shot ducks with chuckles, I have shot ducks that I have worked for minutes, but it depends on the day and how they are working and responding. Good calling is not important, the spot and decoys are. Good luck.
