The first hey being the loudest and stretched out a bit then the next a little lower etc. Get you voice into the call it should be like EHHHH Ehh eh eh. The bolded call being the loudest and stretched out a bit then drop the volume as you continue.. You will be amazed at the difference using your voice through the call makes in the sound. If I call a lot I get a bit horse from using my voice. Also learn to make a good quack and use it occasionally after the hail call.
thanks for the input. Iím glad to know that my practicing goose calling made a difference. According to one of my hunting partners, he said I had a long way to go when it came to learning about calling. Iím glad I got my goose call better, I guess itís the duck call I need to work on.

Im leaving at 6:00 AM tomorrow morning to get to the field. Iíll let you all know how the hunt goes when I get back.
