Have you noticed that the notes you make (clucks), are lower in pitch than the ones the real geese are making when they're a little excited? If so, raise the pitch and tempo of your clucks and see if that makes a difference. It does where I sometimes have practiced. With a few exceptions, the only times they failed to respond by coming closer was when they had their goslings with them .... then they stayed as far away as possible, regardless of whatever notes I made.

If you sound like geese no worries you will call/kill geese. When hunting geese if there are already geese on the water you probably are not going to have great success at decoying them. With that being said don't worry if they don't fly straight to your calling as they are preoccupied. Typically while hunting if we have geese land outside of our shooting range more than a small group that wont swim to decs, we flush them off the water. If there are no birds on the water, you have decs out and you are calling, Canada's respond very well when flying in. The first goose call I ever purchased was a RNT wood call. I learned to cluck on the way to the lake (same day I purchased call) and I called in 3 small flocks that day. We shot every bird that decoyed.

The Bad Grammer DVD will be one of the best things you can buy IMO. But, nothing takes the place of experience. Learn to read the birds and watch how they react to your calling :thumbsup:

in a park like/non hunting situation, its not uncommon for geese who are already on the ground/water to ignore a guy blowing a call at them from a distance. dont assume your doing anything wrong. in hunting situations, its a different story.
Theres always someone out there thats better then you. I'm that guy.
