Unfortunately, my Dad wasn't a hunter, and I don't really have any hunting buddies that are duck hunters, so everything I have learned about waterfowling has been through books, observations, and forums like this one. I feel I have learned a good deal about decoy strategies, locations, behavior, etc, but I can't call worth a ****. I have watched videos, but I still probably scare more ducks away then I call in.
So, I am looking for someone that knows his/her way around a duck call. I'm willing to pay for help on selecting a good call (I only have two cheap ones since I have no idea what to look for in a good call), as well as instruction on how to blow the different calls. I don't need to be an expert or anything, I'd just like to get a few basic calls down. I'm thinking we could meet up on an evening with crappy weather (since I don't want to waste a good weather day not out exploring) and just sit around blowing some calls with you helping me figure out what I'm doing wrong.
