what does your typical goose flock hear from you, i myself start with a mediium hail call, double cluck, lots of clucking, and then finially the murmur clucks as they are falling into the dekes, whats yours?

While the other guys are murmuring, I like to buzz cluck as the birds are finishing.

I have no set "way" to call... I read the birds... Some times all it takes is low-subtle clucks/spits... Other times it's chest busting gett'n on em... With my Zink LM-1 - It always ends with fly'n feathers...

It depends on the geese. It's different everytime.

Like Fowlboy and Tim said you shouldn'y have a routine you use to call every flock of geese you see, watch the birds movement as you are calling they will let you know what they want to hear

I'm with you guys. I try to read the birds and react to what they are telling me and what they do.
