Late in duck season, the ducks at Reelfoot Lake near Tiptonville, Tennessee, know all the games duck hunters play. Flying 1/4- to 1/2-mile up in the air, many of these ducks are so well-educated that they can tell you the brand of call the duck hunter is blowing when they hear it. By now they know where most hunters set-up their blinds, what their decoy spreads look like and which areas to avoid where hunting in their War Eagle Boats. If you want to take a limit of late-season ducks, you often have to change your blind site, switch out your decoy spread and change your calling. Billy Blakely of Blue Bank Resort ( on Reelfoot Lake will show us how to talk to late-season ducks.
