Typically when hunting timber people try to use a quieter timber call so it does not echo as much but to me a louder call is potentially better at least on the first contact you make to get the birds attention so that they can locate you in the vast timber.
When birds are under a lot of pressure the less you call the better off you are "most of the time"...when you're at the pond listening to the ducks you'll notice that don't swim around doing come back calls all day long.
Also, there's no law that says you can't go set up a spread, and call in a few ducks before season starts...just leave the gun at home.
Last bit of advice, practice don't make perfect...perfect practice makes perfect. Good luck and have fun! You're gonna mess up several times, but that's just part of the game.
