For a first timer, I would suggest any mallardtone or quackhead (rnt's cheap polycarbonate calls). youtube is a good place to learn. I kept my calls in the truck and would practice everyday on my way to school when i was first starting off. Practice every day and learn to use your diaphram. I still carry a mallardtone single reed on my lanyard, it is the softest call i have ever used which is a plus for chasing ducks in Texas. Good Luck!
