duck calls for hunting

While a duck call is similar to a whistle, you shouldn’t think it’s that simple! A duck call is more like a musical instrument.

In order to produce a beautiful sound, you need to practice, practice, practice. It takes skill to produce a sound that can be mistaken for a majestic waterfowl.

Every sound you produce has to replicate the real sounds of ducks calling out to each other. If you produce a wonky note, they won’t be fooled into coming closer.

Here are a couple of important calls to learn with JJ Lares duck calls.

Greeting Call

Greeting Call

Learning how to do a greeting call is an important first step to making good use of your duck call. This is a common greeting from one duck to another.

This call is done through five to seven quacks that lower in pitch in a steady rhythm. Only use this call when the ducks are close enough to hear it.

Practice makes perfect. Try to listen to a real duck greeting call while you practice replicating the sound.

Feed Call

Unlike the name, this call is essentially pointless like talking about the weather. This call won’t grab a duck’s attention, but it keep the attention you already have.

This is a more complicated call, but very useful in creating a realistic call going. Your JJ Lares call can help you perfect it.

Say something similar to “tick-a-tick-a-tick-a” into your call while you raise and lower your pitch.

Most ducks will use this call while they are feeding, but they aren’t really calling out to other ducks. This call will just let other ducks know that a duck is feeding in the area.

Pleading Call

This call is best used when ducks are flying 75 to 200 yards above you. It can sound much like a child begging for candy.

Five to six quacks that are drawn out in a pleading fashion.

You are trying to get a duck to come to your aid. This call can get even the most stubborn ducks’ attention.

These are only a few of the calls you can master to help you draw in your prey. JJ Lares calls are a great tool to create realistic calling sounds.
