Calling and Saliva

Postby xtrema13 » Mon Mar 17, 2014 8:33 pm

So as some of you know I am extremely excited because I have finally started to get goose calling on a short reed call. But there is just one problem, my saliva. I know I'm going to get a few jokes here. But I'll practice calling, then I'll back have to literally dump the saliva out of my call. It starts to change the sound when enough saliva get in it. I'm currently blowing a Tim Grounds Super Mag. I don't know what I need to do to help this. If anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated.

I spit a s**t ton in my calls and the only problem is my duck call will stick. When I'm really working my goose call there's a steady stream of spit dripping out of the insert out on to my hand. Never had an issue with a goose call but you could try blowing clearer air and try and control the amount that goes into the call. It's not much but hope it helps

If you don't mind spending another $20 or so, you could go to the Molt Gear site and get the Bad Grammer DVD. It helped me a ton and using Scott's method, I have never had spit came out of a goose call. I pick up something new every time I watch it.

The above is probably good advice, as my guess is that if you're loading the call with spit, you're working too hard at it.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

Buy two or three calls, when one gets full set it down and pick up a fresh one

Not true Rick. I have spit rolling out the end of my call pretty much every time I pick it up.

I never have it change the sound though.

Then I'll rephrase it: when I have loaded a goose call with spit, I was trying too hard.

Drink plenty of water. Sound weird but it helps with spit control. And make sure you are not cheating and keep the tip of your younger tight against your bottom row of teeth.

For duck calling sound advice. For goose calling not so much
