i was surprised at the number of votes received on the last poll about single/double reed calls. thanks to everyone for participating. i think there was some good information in the responses that were offered. let's keep up that trend this week. :salude:

let's talk about using whistles. give any and all information you want to share including successes failures, tips & how-to's, etc.

note: links to a compilation of info are great of course. if you can/want to, add your own input, experiences, etc. as well. thanks again for helping out us novice callers.

I use a whistle everytime I am out duck hunting. I think it makes my spread sound more realistic with it because if you listen to a flock you can hear the drake sometimes. I hunt in a field most of the time and I have a shaker feeder call and then I blow the whistle while I am shaking it.

You can turn a flock of Goldeneyes using a whistle using the te te te te te te sound that they make when they do their "fly-by's". It seems they turn around at least one time to try to pick up the stray birds left behind. I like using the drake Mallard dweeeek as well, seems to convince the drakes to follow the hen in for the landing. I like using the Teal chirp with the grinding/growling hen call. We don't shoot a ton of Teal, but the combo sure fools them right into the spread. We just don't have enough Widgeon and Pintails to try out the other whistles.

We use one quite a bit. Sometimes in late season we will barely use our mallard calls and just use use the drake whistle. It makes a big difference because everyone else around is high balling and doing all that crap that the ducks hear everyday. I think it really helps bring em in, especially those weary late season ducks.
