The legalization of the electronic goose call has not only increased the snow goose harvest each spring, it has made these birds even harder to kill. You can increase the effectiveness of your electronic call by playing the most realistic snow goose call recordings on the market like the “Snow Talker” and by adjusting the volume of your electronic snow goose call while the snow geese are working your snow goose decoys.
When the snow geese are at a distance (1 mile plus), increase your e-caller volume to the point it starts to distort. This is your maximum volume you should be using while hunting. There is no reason to be blasting out distorted sounds just to sound louder. When the birds start to get closer, decrease the volume of your electronic goose call. This will allow the geese to check out your decoys and not have some unrealistically loud sounds coming from the ground. Extreme volume at close range is a dead give away that the birds below are snow goose decoys and not live snow geese.
If the birds do not get close enough on the first pass (95% of the time this is the case), let the birds get out 100 yards or so, hit the snow geese with the snow goose flag, and also increase the volume on your electronic snow goose call until the geese turn. This is exactly like calling ducks. Increase the volume of your duck call when they are out on the corners and going away, and decrease it as they are incoming or checking out your decoys from above.
I am often asked how do I get more volume out of my electronic snow goose call so geese can hear my electronic snow goose call at a farther distance. I answer with these four tips:
- Play the clearest recordings on the market so your recordings are not the distortion factor. The clearest and most effective are the “Snow Talker” electronic snow goose call recordings.
- Buy speakers capable of making clear and crisp sounds. We have been using these snow goose call speakers for years with great success!
- Add an amplifier to your MP3 player, CD, or Tape Deck.
- Play a MP3, CD, or Tape deck with a high output.
By following the tips above you will increase the amount of snow geese that check out your spread because your electronic snow goose call is louder and you can attract them from farther away. For more goose and duck hunting tips please read other articles located at duck and goose hunting tips.
