  1. I hunt with guys that have that constant machine gun feeder call style and they told me that’s where I need to get to…. walking the park the other day they sanded EXACTLY like what you were doing. That was awesome. Gonna tell my buddy’s to pound sand and watch this video.

  2. Great video! I always seem to have trouble with my calls freezing up on cold weather here in Wisconsin. I will try that tip on keeping the reed down so the spot doesn't build up.

  3. agree with other comments here… great video Joel…. I used to carry a duck call with me all the time… listened to real ducks, listened to other callers in the blind… no better way to learn that to learn than to listen and practice every chance you get until you figure out how to make the same sounds that a duck makes 😉 Like a musician, there's always more skills and techniques to learn… and you have to practice, practice, practice…. used to drive my mom (when I was younger), and my wife… and my kids crazy with practicing all the time… a really good time for me was in the truck, but, enclosed spaces are NOTHING like calling in the blind, or in the flooded timber…. call outside… your neighbors will love it!

  4. I agree with reed down for less sticking ! In freezing cold Minnesota I’ve found that wood calls don’t freeze up as bad as acrylic in late season. Another great video !

  5. I have such a hard time doing a “fast” feed call to mix things up. My “tikka” or “tukka” just doesn’t work fast. Lol. Any advice on how to get “faster”? Or easy way to be faster?

  6. Thanks for another great instructional video. I was definitely a grunter for a couple of years and once I broke that habit I am more successful and sound a lot better. Still working on my feed call but getting better with practice every day. Thanks again!
