    Duck/calls

    It's possible the reed is not in the right position on the tone board to make the correct sound. It's also very likely that the cork will be so dry that if you move it it will be damaged. You can buy the reeds and the cork online and keep the original as a template, then trim the new one. I would probably just practice more before I bothered with thats. It might be perfectly tuned and you just don't know how to use it yet. Anyone who's ever tuned a duck call can tell you that those four parts you have there can frustrate you to the point of throwing it in the lake. That's why some people just send there's back to the manufacturer for reed replacement and tuning every couple years. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Duck/calls

    PS Olt D-2's are popular and even fetch good money $100+ for the vintage ones. The one your blowing into probably needs to be tuned badly. They also don't blow like a normal Single reed duck call, more back pressure is needed to run them. There's places that you can send the old one to get the guts replaced and tuned up. Just do an online search. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Boat blind

    That's the best aluminum boat blind I've ever owned. My only complaint is they could add more vegetation straps. Looks good! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Goose permission

    You may have more success if you actually target "productive" properties where you actually see geese during the season and then offer to barter your manual labor during some part of the off season for hunting access. Doesn't have to be a lot, but most farmers will appreciate that a lot more than you think. If you know how to operate heavy equipment or have any maintenance skills that would be a good sell too.

    What do you guys use to rig your decoys

    Long lining puddle ducks is probably not the most realistic spread especially if you only have 12 decoys and one single line of birds. You never see birds in a perfect line in nature. There are several other reasons why birds may be passing your spread up. You may be seeing a lot of birds at your spot, but it's late season now and the birds are going to circle and circle and circle and then just when you can't take it any more, they are going to leave. That can happen if you do everything right. Hell I see birds doing that to other real birds quite often. If after the first circle you call and it's not realistic calling or over calling they will surely just leave. If there's no motion this late in the game, they will leave. If your hide is not good, they'll leave. Unless of course u are in a spot that they absolutely have to be in, than they will ignore all those things and come straight in;) Chances are the birds are being sky busted all day and they aren't exactly eager to repeat the process of being shot at.

    Hunting with a Rescue/Adopted dog

    How'd it work out? I should think that at one year old, any force fetch program would work to break her of most if not all of those issues. Just grab a program (fowl dogs, smart works), join a retriever club and give it a try. I mean, if you thought you could argue with a woman and win you should be willing to take on this challenge;) I wouldn't jump into FF until you've gone through OB and the dog has settled into your family without any temperament issues.

  10. If I were you I would go buy 10 dozen economy snow goose silosocks and one dozen sentry silosocks. That should cost you about $400. Unless you can find a bunch of Texas rags used, that's about your cheapest option that doesn't involve pillowcases, plastic trash bags and milk jugs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. If they want to be in that field you can get away with a few hundred. If your running traffic keep buying until you've lost your wife, children and home. Then they might decoy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    All this time I've been trying to keep deer out of my garden and all I needed the whole time was surveying tape! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Squirmy labrador

    Is she collar conditioned? Not saying to burn her out but after my dog learned stay if he starts to adjust out of his "place" he gets a correction. Even so he just turned two and there's only so much he can take on slow days. After a few hours if the action is slow I toss a mark or two out for him to let him burn some energy and then it's back to the hunt. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    No place to goose hunt

    He had to make a lifelong commitment for that field, what did you have to do? Lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
