    Anyone have any good tips on blowing these keyhole style calls. ive got it down pretty good i think other than my face turning red and my head starts throbbing when i work a big group from way up high. but u can never be too good at calling ducks. thanks for any tips in advance.

    practice practice practice......................... bring the air up from your diaphram not your throat. a cutdown call is not as easy to blow as a rnt, echo , haydel, or any other call............ it is also not a call that you are going to master straight out of the package.............. keep blowing in day in and day out and it will get easier for ya ! good luck .

    Yeah nice encouraging words there griff. Derk I just got one myself and can tell you that it is def gonna take some work. Oh and by the way I have blown an Olt and now this DFB not putting the olt down but the dfb is alot easier to me. Sorry I cant help you now derk but maybe someday I will get it.

    As others have stated practice, practice, and more practice. I read somewhere, that made a lot of sense, to put the air through the call like you are blowing through a straw. Also, look at the videos posted from the youtube contest and use some of them as your guide. Cody's would be a good one to try and do considering he won :idea:

    Good Luck :up:

    Forget everything you ever learned about air control with your typical duck call. Start blowing the :censored: out of it. When you start getting sound, then learn to control the air again. When I first got my DFB I hated it, now I love it.

    blow from the gut with the right amount of 'umph'. as much air through as small a hole as possible. use your hand to build pressure on one end and your diaphragm to build pressure on the other.
