I voted the audio for the gadwall as horrible because their flyover sound includes the sound of a red-winged blackbird which is not even a duck. Listen to the bird in this video:

the gadwall is one of my favorite ducks to hunt IRL but the ones in-game look nothing like the ones irl. The gaddies in the game are white while gadwals irl are dark grey.

I only ever find like 1 Gadwall among every 60 AMD, mallard or pintails.

Why are the Gadwalls so rare compared to all other ducks?

biggest issue i have with the gadwall is the caller, a single toot just sounds odd and a bit lazy compared to the mallard short range that has an actual call and not just a quick rasp. same as the pintail caller. atleast make it an actual call that longer than0.5 seconds

Considering that you live in the UK, you have probably never hunted gadwalls irl. I have a gadwall call and when I us eit on gaddies, I only do about one toot per 10 seconds, the call is all perfect other than the fact that the guy on the game is blowing backwards in it.

The other call problem is that when they fly over i always hear a red-winged blackbird, going: ehhr-wheeeeeeeeeeee!
