get some calling cds and practice.i wouldnt call while hunting.tell you get good at it.if your a good caller its good if your a bad caller you just scare the ducks away.you can still get ducks without calling.i heard a guy calling sounded like he was blowing a kazoo.

I call very little. No highball or feeding call. Just a few quacks and I use a drake whistle some. I killed at least 3 ducks every time I went out and have shot tons of ducks using this method. The blowhard city guys get em spooked quick out here. Seems like everyone with a gun and a couple decoys thinks they can call and hunt.

If they'r comen let em come. you don't have to call anymore. If the duck starts to get off course, call a little and see what happens.If the duck corrects its course[that is to meet up with your gun barrel], don't call anymore.If he continues to stray a way from you, you have nothing to loose by giving the duck a good who's your mother on your duck call.If it works, bang! If it don't, you never had him in the first place.

Ever sit on the water, with other set up's all over and duck's are coming, and everybody go's nut's on there call's, and duck's stay up high and just circle, this is the time to shut up! I like to use a pintail, or wood duck call alot to, it seem's to work pertty good when everybody else is using a hen mallard call, throw something a little different at them! Practice, practice, practice just like shooting it take's time to get good at anything, maybe try going out before season, and calling see what the duck's come to or run from

In my area... If ya high ball em, they immediatly gain 5,000 ft. and head to the Big Muddy...We call at wing tips and tails only... 3 quacks...Quack...quack....quack :thumbsup: There will be times when ya get a few working from all directions. You might hear a hen qwacking...give her a short greeting...Quack, quack, quack, quack, quack...dropping off at the end. I like my whistle as well :yes: :yes: :yes: Y'all have a nice day :cool:

Echo makes a calling CD called Calling 101. it talks alot about what sounds to use in different situations. there are other CD's out there too. RNT makes one that is supposed to be pretty good, but the Echo one is the only one i've heard so i can't speak for the others.

most important..and it has been said here already. if they are coming. LET THEM COME! don't call at birds that are coming right at you. that is probably the biggest calling mistake people make and i have been guilty of it many times.

I use alot of feed chuckles, quacks and some soft 3-5 note greetings when i'm working birds. I don't try to call them in from 500 yards out. instead, I let the decoys do the work and just start calling to them when they get close. say, inside 200 yards or so. that's just me..it fits my style of hunting and works well in my areas.
