Look for ducks, if you find ducks get where they were the day before you hunt before they do. Set out a few decoys and when they come back to the spot they were previously at shoot them. The first 2 years you hunt, leave your calls in the truck. They will do more harm than good. Knowing when to and when not to call is just as if not more important than knowing how to call. All of those things will come with time. Learning on your own is going to be hard and will take you years. That learning curve can be shortened exponentially if you find a friend or relative that duck hunts already and learn from them. Since you are new to the area, you might consider joining your local DU or Delta Chapter and making friends with like minded people. When they take you somewhere, don't blow up that spot. It might be public land, but it isn't right for you to abuse their kindness by advertising that spot or hunting it all of the time.
