I was out duck hunting today, it was about 60degrees out, blue skyes :/ and a mild wind, i was hunting from 1-4pm and didnt see a singel duck, my buddy set up the bildn around 8am and got off a few rounds at some ducks but none were present thisafternoon. We hunt on a marsh that has almost no hunting presuer. There are local geese that resied in the marsh all year round and at about 3:30, we saw a flock of 15 or so comming at us high up and about a mile away, i was calling on my double reed using the hail call and a some basic quack, when they were around 600yds out they droped down to probably about 200 feet and then droped some more to around 100 feet and came withing 11yds of the blind, i countined calling they bancked off and then came back this time just one the edge righ around 40yds and were nice and low probably about 20 feet off the gournd but i didnt make the call to take them becuse i was using #4 steel 3in and didnt think i would have had much of a chance. Why did these gueese come in so close when using a duck call and any advie on what I could do that is inexpencive to get them a little closer next time?
