trouble calling while laying down.

Postby kms399 » Tue Apr 04, 2006 7:50 pm

i was wondering if anyone else has this problem. i can call pretty well while standing in the garage or even sitting in the truck but when i am laying down i cant seem to cluck as long or as fast and i seem to have alot more messed up notes. not to mention it sounds weird while laying in a field blind.

It may have something to do with pressure being excerted on your lungs. You'll get that same affect, lying in bed as well. About all I can say is practice in your layout blind. This will help strengthen the muscles in anound your lungs, and throat..
Good luck.

I had the same problem starting out, but as goosehunter said, practice, practice, practice. Soon enough you can call out of your blind with no problems.

Just like everyone else said, practice in your blind, or laying down. I can blow the call out of a layout, but like you said i lose my breath alot faster.

this is what band class taught me. when you lay down like you are watching birds in your blind or like you are on a bed with two pillows under you. your neck is kinked so its takes more power to move less air that is why you tire faster. when you are standing or sitting with nothing holding our heads we naturally go into a power position which is just a little beyond straight. that is why you will notice guys that do well on stage as tehy get more tired the end of the call starts aiming higher in the air. hope this helps.
