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.

    • Enter Governor smith..   Non-elected by design.   She couldn't win an election for dog catcher, let alone Governor..   Did anyone really believe sickly mark dayton could/would finish his term ??    
    • Trump made good on one of his core campaign promises. Leaders from each of the major trade unions applauded the withdrawal from TPP. Leaders representing Teamsters, Laborers', Sheet metal workers',  Carpenters, Plumbers, Pipefitters, Welders and others. The union meeting also included several local union officials. Labor chiefs described their meeting with D.T. as "incredible".. A great step towards revitalizing the U.S building trades and manufacturing economy.   (These are unions that endorsed hillary....)   Trump also told labor union leaders that he would renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement "at the appropriate time.

    • Withdrawing from the TPP could have the effect of giving countries like China a bigger hand in the world economy over the US.   Or withdrawing from TPP could have absolutely no effect on anything whatsoever
    • If you can't figure out why Trump goes after the media I can't help you.  I've explained plenty of times why I don't answer questions from the good ol boys club.  Yet you keep asking them......sounds like something a tool would do.     #hypocritesandfrauds
