Hunters have been flocking to KELOLAND for the last week to take part in the pheasant season opener. Many of them have different ways to make hunting more comfortable.
For Flashback Friday, we have a story from 1973 where students took a class to learn about duck calling. Former KELOLAND reporter Ron Olson has the story:
For a minimal fee, students ages 12 to 18 are taught the fine art of calling ducks.
Federal Game Agent Howard Loverien shows them how.
"The three calls we're going to learn over the next two weeks are the feed call, like this, a general quick and then the high ball or the cadence like this" Loverien said.
According to Loverien, calling ducks makes hunting more enjoyable and he says it cuts down on the number of crippled birds.
Similar classes were also held in Britton, Redfield and Huron that same year.
