Default Caring for wooden duck calls

So, I went to a thrift store today and found an old wooden duck call. It has a metal reed. Excellent sound in my opinion

I heard that wooden duck calls require specific care. Is this true?

If it is, how do you care for wooden duck calls?

I have hunted with wooden calls all my life, in fact my most expensive one is wood. I have never done anything except if they get wet, I pull them apart to let them dry.

That's good to know. I thought you had to pull them apart after every time you go out hunting to let them dry. Thanks for the advice! I can't wait to try it out when hunting season comes along in October.

I'll post a video of the sound later, if you guys want to hear it.

Apologies, I have been very sick. Wasnt sure if it was COVID19 or something else, but now that I am better, heres the video.

My calling is still a little sloppy, and I am still learning the ropes of Duck and Goose calling, but its okay, I am willing to learn and I am practicing.

Suggestion,use your diaphragm as opposed to just blowing and talk into the call with your voice. For example, on the hail call say ey ey ey into the call which will use your diaphragm, for the feeding call, say tucka tucka tucka as fast as you can.

We all had to learn, it is not something we are born with.
