How-To do the Feed Chuckle
Watch the video for a quick tutorial demonstration.
The Single Feed
The single feed call is exactly like it seems. It is a duck (maybe two or three) feeding on the water. It is an effective call for most hunting situations and used when hunters what ducks to think there is food in the area for them to eat.
When to Use it
When a flock of ducks are already interested in your spread and the greeting call has already caught your attention, pull out the chuckle.
The Basic How-To
When doing the feed call, use the part of your tongue just under the tip and the roof of your mouth. As you release air and snap your tongue down, raise the back of your tongue up to the back of the roof of your mouth to cut off the air. The faster you do this process, the more it will sound like a chuckle.
The Rolling Feed
The rolling feed is an expansion of a single feed and would be really only used in areas where there might be lots of feeding ducks and you have put out both the right style and the right amount of decoys to justify using it. This style of feed calling is mostly used on stage in competition calling to show your tongue control and skills.
When and How to use it
The honest answer is that this call isn’t something you would need to use very often. You can, however, use this style in short spurts,(1-3 seconds)varying the tone, voice, and direction of the call to sound like multiple ducks aggressively feeding.
THE BASIC HOW-TO
When you’re learning to do a rolling feed call that best advice we’ve been given is to walk around saying good as quickly as you can. goodgoodgoodgoodgood just over and over as you walk through the grocery store or wherever you are. This isn’t what you’re going to say into the call but it’s a great exercise to get you more comfortable moving your tongue quickly enough to do a great rolling feed. When you start learning the rolling feed, you want to start small.
