Late Season Calling

Postby JBO » Mon Nov 20, 2006 8:47 am

Now its getting late in the season and the geese are much more weary. What calls or calling should I do to see more success?

Sould I use a call that is much higher pitched?

:help:
Did I call the shot?

I was out last week and it didn't seem to matter how much I called or didn't call. The flag was the key. The geese were coming strait in as long as we flagged. The moment we stopped they turned. If we flagged again they came back in. I could call until I was blue in the face or only make a few clucks and honks. It didn't seem to matter either way.

I did try wailing away on the snow goose call when the Canada's were a LONG way away and it turned them in our direction.

High pitched calls bring in the majority of my birds. Lately I've been using clucks to turn them and feeding murmurs to finish them off.

Had good luck with the snow call and flag combo to get their attention, used the murmur, moan and the dirty talk to keep 'em committed.

Bill Collector Bob, same thing happens to me all the time. You might try just washing them out. I usually take a dollar bill and wipe out under the reed, this almost always fixes the problem.
