    When I need to get @Rushy's attention I just yell at him, should work for other geese no?

    Lies. You're fellow Waikato swillers and just goose each other for attention.

    Yes, don't overlook the lanyard. Mine is a fancy thing, basically some rubbishy used twine tied in a big loop with the ends tied to a couple of callers. Very flash.

    Sorry @EeeBees!

    It is not how you yell but rather what you yell that is important Gibo. For example "Dinner" and "Waikato" even at a barely audible level will evoke much more action from me than "Prick" or "Arsehole" at the top of your voice. After much analysis I have concluded that it is all about the presence or not of the "really don't give a fuck" factor.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Clearly a jealous streak there GM. We will shout you a Waikato at the Toby shoot.

    Been watching a few youtube videos about basic goose calling and starting to get a good idea of what to do.
    Canada hammer is ok but I would personally put my money into something else unless I could get it for under $50.

    Righto cheers I found it for $59. Have you ever tried the electronic callers as a back up? We have a couple lying around home but I'm not the biggest fan of them for the ducks and plus I enjoy doing a bit of calling

    wouldn't have one on my arse for a pimple
    ecallers are for part timers with no patience to learn or even try to learn the basics[ shooters not hunters.]
    natural or stained woods a colour to as is clear apparently.
    haven't tried buck garders goose calls but on his vids I reckon they sound squeaky.

    I have a hammond rip duck call and love it but I'm currently a poor uni student that has spent to much money on duck shooting gear this season so I can't really justify spending the money on a hammond flute or goose call? What other good wooden goose calls are out there?

    That is alright, gadgetman ... look like they are made from paracord ... one thing about paracord lanyards, you can always unravel the braiding and replace your bootlaces ... I am of course very prejudiced towards the real thing ...

    not many to be honest .
    I started with a Hammond goose flute loved it but after a mate started making short reed calls went to those.
    tried to go back but found after many years smoking didn't have the puff for it.
    the power clucker seems to be just as versatile as any short reed and the beauty of goose hunting now is its year round even if a bloody sight more difficult.
    don't sweat the small stuff unless your going comp mad find one call that works for you and perfect what you can on it.
    hail cluck double cluck works alright for me usually.
