Practice does make perfect or so I've heard. I've had really good luck with both double and single reed duck calls but my challenge has been goose call 101. I work hard on getting a decent cluck and haven't moved further. I'm using a Knight and Hale magnum clucker. ?? Could be my problem. ?? I've only tried the goose hunting the past 4 years and have done mainly jump shooting. My duck hunting has always been jump shooting out of two local rivers and several ponds and one small lake. Untill I tried calling geese I thought the hardest part about shooting geese or ducks for that matter, was scouting.. Now I try to get into decoying and the calling has me way off kilter in my progress.
Question(s): Do you guys use a a single call more often than not, such as clucks and moans? I know it's a loaded question but could you recommend using a short reed call over say a flute to gian some experience as to getting the sounds or should I get one good short reed call (goose) and start with one sound, the cluck for instance, get that down and move on as I've been trying with the magnum clucker?
Picking one type of call and one sound worked for me when I started turkey hunting in what seems like a lifetime ago and thats why I was trying to do that with the goose call. Hense, a simple, non exspensive call and trying to master it.
Any and all replays would be a help fellas.
(Great info Mr. Matt)
