Duck hunting is usually most successful in bad weather due to the poor visibility for the duck.
It helps to use a method called, calling on the corners. This means you should call when the duck is flying away from you to the left or right instead of when it is flying towards you. This makes it more difficult for the duck to pinpoint your location.
Adams, co-founder and president of DiscoverTheOutdoors (DTO), heads up
the DTO Hunting Pro Staff. As a lifelong hunter, current host, and
executive producer of Heartland Adventures Outdoor Show, Tony has put
in countless hours in the field, pursuing virtually every game animal
throughout America’s heartland and across the North American continent.
As the leader of the DTO hunting pro staff, Tony provides nearly 40 years
of experience and expertise in all types of hunting, from big game to
small, archery to muzzleloading, and nearly every aspect of hunting in
between. He’s also a certified Hunter Education instructor and remains
committed to encouraging others—particularly young people—to

“I have always considered hunting a privilege and not a right, and
it’s a philosophy I share with everyone I come in contact with,”

University, where he tied or set 20 team offensive records including career
total offense, touchdown passes and passing yards, along with five NCAA
records. He began his professional football career when the San Diego
Chargers drafted him in 1973. In 1974 Tony signed with the World Football
League’s Southern California Sun. While there, he became the WFL's
leading passer and the league's first Most Valuable Player. After the
league folded, he signed with the Kansas City Chiefs as a free agent, where
he played for next five seasons. Tony remains an active member of the
Chiefs’ elite alumni organization, known as the Ambassadors.

and women so that they, too, can build fond memories that will last a
