I can use a goose call well but the duck just doesn't work for me my uncle says i dont use my "diaphram", "your just blowing" and "you should of play a trumpet in middle school". what does this mean. and how do you say a word in a call do you wisper it or do say the word throught the call. you know whick, hick, or hit all of that stuff.

I can call ducks well, but can't blow a goose call to save my soul. My little brother can call ducks and he is killer on his goose flute.

Are you kidding?
Duck calling is 100 times easier than goose calling.
With a goose call- you have to use back pressure, and certain hand positions to create different sounds.

With some duck calls- mainly double reeds- all you do is blow, and use your index and middle finger to control the quack.

a goose call take a lot more air to operate- mainly short reeds.

keep practicing

yea, in my opinion goose calling is by far the hardest to learn. When I first started to blow a duck call I thought it was hard, but then I picked up a goose call and my opinion changed quick from duck being hard to goose being very hard and duck easy. But now I have been hunting for about 10 years and I can call ducks and geese very well. All it takes is practice. LOTS of it!

I am a freak or maybe the 10 dollar knight and hale magnum clucker model 218 is really easy to learn on. The duck calls i have are SUZY-Q duck call by quaker boy and primos easy mallard. I am a beginner, only 15. Maybe i will buy a double reed.

So what about this use your diaphram crap my uncle says?

I hunt with 2 guys all winter long. One is o.k. on a goose call, but can't blow a duck call. The other is good with a duck call but can't blow a goose call. It is the strangest thing, but I do 95% of all calling anyway.

don't listen to that diaphram crap.

when you blow, and breathe- you use the diaphram- just a dumb way of saying- take in a lot of air in your lounges- and hold the air in- and use a little bit for each quack

Hey i'm 17 and have been callin about every day for year and i just moved up to acrylic calls the Big guys Best singel reed and the custom smh and i love them i have found duck callin easier but it's key to say the words you can make the sounds other ways but u won;t be able to get better if u can't say the words. I focus on humming VOOT into the call for my quacks and tick tick for my feeding call if u can say those words into the call u can make any sound u want. Happy huntin however i haven't mastered the rooling feed call any one have some tips. :)

It took me a long time to get the rolling feed call. IMO it's one of the hardest to learn. All I can tell you is to keep on practicing, that's how I got it. I thought the day would never come that I could do it but it did and now I can do it so easy.
