Diver Duck Calls (Ringed-Neck)

6 posts in this topic

I'm trying to call in some ducks for photography. I just bought a diver duck call. Its a Mick Lacy Game Call; Diver. I can't find any examples of what I'm suppose to sound like. I'm hoping to call in some Ringed-Neck Ducks, but any diver will do. Can anybody help me out? Thanks!

Like wooduck says, it can be tough to call divers. A good spread of decoys helps, and the drake to hen ratio idea isn't a bad one.

Roll your tongue into the call in short repeated pulses for most divers. I have a few Mick Lacy calls and most of them have good directions on the back of the package.

I googled "ring necked duck call" and a cell phone ring came up that you can play. Listen to that.

Also using a black flag will get them to come into your set or at least get a flyby.

Thanks everyone. A lot of good these ringed neck decoys I have will do. I suppose I could paint them to be something else.

Add something very white decoys like Goldeneyes, Canvasback or something like that, they will help bring divers in as well. Ringneck decoys work well like you mentioned. A friend of mine does a call on his BGB Wide Open duck call and the divers love that and turn right in. I don't know how to explain how he does it.

    • Good luck Anyfish2. Saw quite a few out in the rain driving home today    
    • Well, i will try my hand at picking up another bird for the team starting tomorrow.  Weather looks to be challenging at best over the next 7 days.  I will give my best effort when i can get out.   Birds are still hanging around the area well,  hopefully i can get a tom to break from the Hens.  
    • and this?   
    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
