I never hunted geese over water until this year. Do you guys change up your calling style form field to water or keep it the same. Cant say I have ever had a chance to listen to them on the water.

i hunted ontelaunee for geese once and i didnt change the calling i used from the field to the water and got a few to commit but we had too many duck decoys out and they flared before we could call any shots

we don't call very hard when hunting over water and not at all when geese are over head. Leave the duck decoys at home, or only take a few and put them off to the side away from the pocket you want the geese to land in.

The calls on the water tend to be a bit softer if the geese are resting, but if they are starting to get stirred up, they can start sounding pretty excited. I like a softer, quieter call over the water, and I try to do more contentment type sounds rather than the aggressive feeding sounds that you typically hear in a field. More moans, more soft clucks, I will throw in some hiccups or double cluck sequences here or there to grab their attention, but try and keep off them as much as I can. Lot of times just keep the call in the pocket on the water too... Works more than the call companies want you to believe!!!
