Hey , Timberduck. I have pretty good luck here in Pa. when I use a fairly loud call such as a old style RNT or one of my own calls that I make and use here on the big water of lake Erie or Presque Isle bay. I never go without a goose call or two. Sometimes old green head feels safer landing next to his big friends. Good Luck. Mike[/b]
Use something loud as hell man! When those ducks light up a field they make some noise and you can hear that old hen for a mile sometimes it seems. I use a gose call most of the time cuz thats what im usually hunting but a keep a mallard call to reach out and toch the greenheads!
Any water call you blow well will work in the field. But you need to give them something to see, Robo's, flags ... If they see and hear you you'll get more of them interested. I let them see me first and won't blow calls till they're +/- 300 yards. Then it's lots and lots of feeding chuckles.
