First, go to the huntin store and get you a good instructional cd
Next, leave your calls hangin in your truck
Lastly, every time you step in that vehicle from now til season starts, put that tape in and play with it.
Im 18 and have been callin since I was 5. Not saying im great, but I can keep up with just about anybody when it comes to calling. The key to it is practice. Play with different sounds, and develop your own words to say. Initially work on a single quack, dont get tempted to try hail calls, or anything else. Once you get that perfected, start working on your feeding call. I was probably 16 before I could do a good feeding chuckle, its definately the most challenging. If you can do a feeding call and a single quack you can call ducks. After you get those down start working on comeback calls, then hail calls, etc. Practice, and play with it to eventually develop rythym. You will get there with a lot of practice. But remember, just cuz these guys do a bunch of exotic crap on tv doesnt mean that you cant call in a group of birds with a single quack and feeding call. really on high pressured birds I end up doin a lot more of that than anything else. good luck
