The Goose Cluck
Watch the video for a quick tutorial demonstration.
After learning how to honk with a goose call, the cluck is the next step in becoming a great goose caller.
This is how it’s done:
1). If you have the honk down, shorten it up.
The cluck is the most important note period.
Instead of putting the moan in front of the cluck, like you do for the honk, use only the end part of the honk.
2). Force your air faster and cut the note harder.
This is something you’ll have to practice a lot! The trickiest thing about goose calling on a short reed is the amount of time needed to control your air. Once you can figure out how to force your air faster and consistently when doing the cluck, every other note from there will be that much easier!
3). Voice inflection.
To get different sounding notes, you’ll need to throw some voice into it. Not a crazy deep growl, but enough so that you make that reed vibrate a little more to get that goosey note. Practice finding 3 notes and doing those notes consistently so that when you’re hunting in the field it’s 2nd nature.
