  • mat su duck calling

    I was hunting cottonwood last week and heard people calling ducks. I've only just jumped ducks and played the sit and be still game with ducks their. Do people have success with duck calls here or even use decoys .just never heard it before..... good luck everyone

    No.. Ducks are not vocal. Duck calls are to communicate in a special language with other hunters across the marsh. There are 8 notes you will need to become familiar with in order to effectively communicate your messages. There are also many other different types of calls that represent another special language. They are labeled as Pintail, teal, widgeon and possibly the diver call. Each has it's own special note and tone.
    Good luck

        If you become a member of AWA, you will be provided the Morris code list of calls and tones ( AWA Quack List) It is up to you to learn them... there is also a special hand shake that is shared amongst members.

          You're kidding right? Do duck calls and decoys work...... uh yeah. I have turned ducks multiple times that were headed to other ponds using a set of 12-18 dec's a mojo with a remote and an assortment duck calls. You need some movement and something that will entice them to drop. Hence why decoys and duck calls are used.

                    I've just never seen guys headed out with decoys from cotton wood or come back with Em I'm fairly new. Just use to jump shooting I guess still learning about when and where to use decoys.

                      I haul decoys in and out of cottonwood, and use a call.
                      It's not skybusting if you fold em'.

                          Thats because you have to walk about 3-4 miles out there to get a good shoot. Most everyone leaves thier decoys out there stashed in a strategic location. makes sense.

                            I had a bag stashed out there that year they banned ATV's. I used to cover it up to make it look like a muskrat hut. It stayed pretty well hidden. I wouldn't have minded if somebody else used them as long as they left them there, but can't trust anybody to do that anymore. Honestly the only other person I ever saw hike out as far as I did was AK_Marine, and he's a hunting buddy anyway so I told him he could use them whenever he wanted. I cut the straps off the decoy bag, so if somebody hauled them out, they would have really earned them. Now that ATV's are allowed again, I wouldn't leave them out. I used to just strap them down to the quad and ride out to the area the pond I hunted was, park, then carry my decoys in so I didn't leave a trail to my hunting spot.
