Take it from a 40 year Louisiana vet. duck hunter, chosing the right call early on is not the real deal. Learning the proper basics will bring you a long way with any call. Once you have mastered the basics, and feel like going to the next level, explore different brands. Not to bash anyones call, I blew a PS OLT for many years, a hard call to master, due to the volume of air need to make proper notes. However, calls have come a long way, and I opted for a Haydel, after hearing Ely call at a show in central La. But as I said before, see if you can get someone who is proficient in calling, :toofunny: to teach you basics and if possible go to a duck pond and listen to the sounds ducks make. A bit of advice, always blow from the gut.
