Call care?

4 posts in this topic

I have noticed that when using my duck call I end up saturating it with saliva as is expected, due to the feeder calls I rattle off. But the problem I notice is that I can only do it either nonstop, or I end up with my reed sticking to the wedge and needing to blow 4-5x harder then normal, just to get the call to sound. I feel the back preasure increase and when it does break loose it is one of those god awful sounds that will scare the ducks away for decades. Any precautions or steps I can take in the future to avoid this problem?

Thanks in advance.

You may not blowing into your call right. Use hot air from your diaphram not your mouth to call. Otherwise try taking a deep breath with your mouth open before you call. It will dry out your mouth a bit.

Another thing you can do is put alittle PAM cooking spray in there. It works well but you have to do it every year.

Froggy,
Does that actually work without affecting the reeds and the tone?

I have one call, which happens to be my favorite, that locks on me when I am calling. It is a real raspy and duck single reed that will all of a sudden lock up. I have it in my #1 spot on my lanyard, but I always have a back-up hanging just in case. I have spoken to the call maker about it and he will put in a new reed and adjust it so it won't luck up so much, but I don't want to send it out until after the season.
Maybe the call maker can adjust yours for you.
