Passionate duck hunters and callers often ask me at sport shows: How do I become a better duck caller? This may seem like a very simple question with a simple answer but it is not. To become a better duck caller you need a quality call, proper instruction, and discipline to practice on a consistent basis.
Choosing the right duck call to become a better duck caller
Picking out the right call is the easiest part of becoming a better duck caller. If you hunt a variety of condition, a mid-range to loud single reed call like a Screaming Single would be your call of choice. It will allow you to make loud greeting calls yet finish the birds with contented hen quacks. If you hunt smaller potholes, sloughs, or timber, quieter calls like the Raspy G2 would make the best choice.
Choosing the right instructional duck calling CD to become a better duck caller
An instructional CD on duck calling is more important than the call itself. An instructional duck calling CD like “Quackin” will teach you the fundamentals on how to properly play a duck call to make quality sounds and more importantly when to blow the call. You may lose your duck call in the marsh, but you will never loose quality instruction once you are taught.
Practice makes perfect duck calling
If you do not learn proper technique on how to blow a duck call, all your practice will be reinforcing bad fundamentals of duck calling. Practicing the exact steps in the instructional duck calling CD “Quackin”will have you sounding like a veteran in the marsh or timber in no time.
By following the steps above I guarantee you will become a better duck caller and start harvesting more ducks. Good luck becoming a better duck caller!
