Goose Calling Lessons

Recommended Posts

Hungryman76

  I'm fairly new to goose hunting (I'm a bow hunter) and I hunt with a few guys that are equally as new.  We all live and hunt in the north east metro about an hour from Minneapolis.  Being new to the sport, our goose calling needs some work.  Does anyone know of someone that gives goose calling lessons?  The lessons don't need to be in the northeast metro, we can travel.

It might be easier, and quicker to buy a DVD on calling.  I've been planning to do that myself but didn't want to buy a pre packaged set that is so commonly seen.

I want to know how geese communicate, not just how to work a particular call.

I've googled DVDs but haven't purchased one yet.  Yes, hands on lessons would be cool but I don't think there's much of a market for it with the technological options available today.

If you've found something already, please share.

      I went hunting with river rat this morning. I got two drake woodies and Chris got one. Finn was being a pain in the butt and would not fetch Chris’s duck. Finn however fetched both of my ducks. Finn flushed a bunch of woodcocks on our walk out. Finn got muddy today

           Decent first three weekends of the waterfowl season in central MN. Been water hunting only so far, on permanent water. Ducks are dispersed with all the temporary flood water around from all the rain. Crops are slowly coming out, will probably be behind schedule due to wet conditions. We have harvested mallards, wood ducks, BWT, GWT, shovelers, pintails, redheads, ringnecks, ruddy ducks,and Canada geese so far. Locals the first two weekends, but the cold front last week move a lot of local ducks out and a few new birds moved in out of ND and Canada. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      For many years I could only afford the cheapest decoys - which worked. But, I finally upgraded my goose floaters.  Can you see the difference? 
       
      Gnh used 6 years with paining touch ups verses avian x.

      I am coming up there Sept 5 and staying a week.  I can hardly wait!  I want to get in on the trolling bite before it gets too late.

      One of the reasons I decided to try them is size. Can't find shiners here and the fatheads are small, almost as small as crappie minnows. The light pike sucker minnows are 4" - 5" and with the water cooling down and the later part of the season, I'm thinking the size will more closely match natural forage. We'll see how things go.

      Went out of superior entry yesterday morning. Found some decent laker action. They were all on the small side and most all of them came in 52 fow on the riggers set at 45 ft. Ended up with 7 lakers and a bonus walleye. Had a lot of quick releases on the riggers as well so probably smaller Lakers.

      One of the lakers had 14 pieces of minnows in it's gut!! And it still attacked my spoon

      By the way, we saw three nice bucks in a group on Wakemup Village Rd on the way home.  I was sort of surprised since They were clearly in a group, and I thought bucks were more solitary.    Looked like 6-8 pointers.    Good looking deer.

      Went out late last week out of the Wisc entry and dropped a line in 55 feet of water and nailed one right off the bat before setting any other lines out. Trolled till 100am and we picked up 5 lakers and one nice walleye. Walleye went back.   Most on dipseys and one came off a  4 oz snap weight right off the back with spoons. No particular coleor
    • tacklejunkie
      Agree with the above. But I've also caught plenty of eating sized walleyes with them, also

      I've used light suckers when I couldn't get shiners or rainbows and was going after bigger walleye and they did work.

      We had bought bait for pike fishing last winter, well I sent my wife in to buy it while I fueled the truck.  Scoop of crappies and a dozen suckers for tip ups.  She came back with a scoop of crappies and a dozen light pike suckers.  Those are for pike, right?   We couldn’t get on the lake we intended to so went to plan B for walleyes with friends.  I “gave em a try” and was really impressed how well they worked.  I’ll definitely do it again.

      Went to Landing last night (Saturday).   Had reservations and got a nice table by the window.   Server was working hard but seemed like maybe she was new and over loaded.    My iced tea was served in a shorter glass, and the water was plastic cups.  Maybe the dishwasher was behind.   Food was good and served hot.   My burger was a little over cooked but not bad enough to make me complain to the place.  Just you guys.      Prices moderate.  They  had run out of artichokes for the artichoke dip...  Price was good.   Plenty food for me and mrs.     No alcohol, my buddy is on methotrexate and gets one beer a week.   His was friday at the cook vfw burger night which I highly recommend.
