Calling is a big part of Reaction Waterfowl. I have been calling for 20 years & calling competitively for 10 years. After the 2015 Goose Calling contest season I was ranked 7th in the nation for goose callers on www.callingducks.com. Winning Minnesota State Goose, Northstar Regional, Gamefair Open Goose, Gamefair Two Man Goose & other Top 5 finishes, nationally.
Contest calling and calling live birds is two different things. Being able to effectively use a call is good, but won't be as successful if the timing isn't right when working live birds. There are days in the field when calling does not affect success, but on certain days the right calling can convinence birds to be manipulated & can make the difference to limit out.
