Hunting Canada Geese is common in many parts of the world and the technique of calling is important to the success of the hunters. Calling is important; however, for many hunters calling is also the most difficult part of the hunting process to master. Learning to call Canadian Geese is not only about learning to make the appropriate sounds but it also includes learning when to call and when to stop calling. When first learning to call Canada Geese it is recommended to use instructional tapes or friends who have already learned the process. It is also important, no matter how seasoned a hunter you are, to practice calling in advance. It is also important to learn how to blow into a reed before using it in the field; a top of the line model can not only ease the learning process but also better represent a flock of Canadian Geese. When learning to call remember not to get frustrated as the learning process is important and also challenging.
Many hunters experience success in hunting without calling; however, calling can add more to the hunting experience with practice. When hunting Canada Geese many hunters employee decoys and an effective and well practiced call can add further realism to the decoys. Calling is also important as it can help attract flocks of Canada Geese. Many hunters first begin to become interested in calling after experiencing a hunt where many flocks fly close but not close enough to their blinds and they are forced to go home empty handed. Calling helps solve this frustration as calling can attract nearby flocks into the hunting range. It is also important to remember when calling that overcalling the Canadian Geese is a hindrance to the hunt and that hunting should always be related to the actions of the flock you are trying to attract. For example when the Canadian Geese are further away the call should be louder; however, as the geese approach the decoy and blind the call should become softer to emulate a real flock.
Geese Calling Technique
Many hunters of Canadian Geese already hunt as part of a group and this can benefit in calling. It has been found that a group of adequate callers will have more success in attracting a flock than one accomplished caller. It is likely that a group is more effective because a group is better able to simulate a real flock of Canadian Geese communicating than an individual is able to. It is also recommended by seasoned hunters to use feeding chuckles to attract nearby geese. Most hunters of Canadian Geese have also experienced success in calling by using a short-reed goose call. When learning to call Canada Geese it is recommended to learn two basic calling sounds in order to attract a flock of Canada Geese. The two basic sounds are the cluck and the honk. In order to produce the clucking noise a short burst of air must be blown into a reed while saying the word whit. This action will produce a distinct call. The honk meanwhile is also created through a short burst of air followed by saying in a high to low note the sound whoooo-wit.
