Welcome to the addiction!
First and foremost, thank you for getting youth involved! I completely agree with waveslider about getting started on calling early. I started hunting ducks when I was 8 but didn't start to focus on calling until 10 years later when I was starting college in South Dakota. It was a long and tedious road because I had to teach myself. Get started in the off season and work up from the basics, quack and feeding chuckle. A call I would recommend is the RNT Quackhead J-Frame. It is a polycarbonate double reed that is very easy to blow and has a good ducky sound to it, plus it's only like $20. In addition, if/when you decide to upgrade to a more expensive acrylic or wood call, RNT makes them and they will feel much the same in your hand. That's just my 2 cents, use it as you wish. Happy hunting!
Every day I try to be the person my dog thinks I am. If I have accomplished this when my time comes, I feel I will have had a pretty good life.
