A Brief Overview Of Calling Geese Breeds

By Robert Ford

Hunting Canadian Geese is prevalent among numerous people throughout the world. To accomplish a perfect hunting trip, the key requirement is to make the goose-call. It involves learning to make a odd sound like the geese so that they are drawn near to the hunter. Learning to make a goose-call is a strenuous thing. It is quite tough for a hunter to become efficient in calling. The calling should be of a suitable style to lure the birds and also it is mandatory to keep a note of the calling time.

When first learning to call Canada Geese it is advised to use instructional tapes or friends who have already mastered the process. It is also important, no matter how seasoned a hunter you are, to practice calling prior to the hunt.

Learning to blow a reed is the basic concept that helps you make a typical sound resembling that of a goose. A reliable model of the reed must be bought, in order to get trained easily and quickly. No doubt, the task is really hard, but with patience you can become adept at it.

There are hunters who have had successful hunting trips without having to shout like a goose. Some have taken along decoys to do the calling. Nevertheless, the calling technique definitely adds to the success of your game. Practice repeatedly so that your calls will indeed sound authentic enough to bring flocks of geese to you.

Calling is also important as it can help lure flocks of Canada Geese. Many hunters first start to become interested in calling after experiencing a hunt where many flocks flew near but not close enough to their blinds and they are forced to go home with nothing. Calling helps solve this frustration as calling can attract nearby flocks into the hunting range.

The calling pitch is really significant. If it is exaggerated, the hunting is not successful. The farther the flock, the louder should the call be. As they come nearer towards the hunter’s blind, the tone should become milder, so that a realistic effect is produced. Moreover, the calling style should be in accordance with the activities of the flock.

Hunters have begun travelling about in groups. Hence, goose-calling seems to have made remarkable improvement. This is because, calling out in groups is more beneficial when contrasted to a single call even from an experienced caller. A group of callers can actually duplicate a flock of Canadian Geese trying to communicate with another flock. Hence group-calling appears more successful.

Skilled hunters advise that you can make a food-chewing noise when you sense that the flock is coming closer. This brings them nearer to the blind. Most of the Canadian Goose hunters use a short-reed calling method which has brought about realistic results.

Geese emit sounds of two types, specifically cluck and honk. Thus, both these basic sounds should be duplicated perfectly to bring the Canadian Geese nearer to you. For the ‘cluck’ sound, the reed is blown for a short duration simultaneously saying the word ‘whit’. Conversely, the ‘honk’ sound is made by blowing the reed for a short duration and then saying the word ‘whoooo-wit’ starting from a high tone to end with a low tone.
