OL: Does calling change regionally?
JR: I pretty much blow the same stuff wherever I am. There may be some changes in vocabulary on the migration route, and there are changes day to day. Some days ducks are just more callable. Some days no type of call or style of calling will bring a duck in. But from a flyway perspective, good solid licks and quacks work just as well in Saskatchewan as they do in Cameron Parish, La. Old hands on Bayou Meto talk about the "five and seven"--five quacks and seven quacks--blown fast, back-to-back-to-back, for breaking high ducks. Listen to a bunch of happy ducks and you hear the five and seven. If you learn to blow it fast and slow, soft and loud, you can call ducks anywhere.
