New to goose calling

Postby joetc » Wed Oct 19, 2005 2:35 pm

I've had a couple goose calls but have ended up losing them or parts of them and now I'm getting serious about getting a new call and really learning how to use it. My Question is what call would you recommend for a beginner? I want something that is easy to learn with a good sound.
I can't afford top of the line but I'm not looking for the cheapest call either. Your opinions would be greatly appreciated.

I was looking at the Mick Lacy and buck gardener hammer 2 but i'd be willing to spend a little more if needed.

And could anyone suggest a good dvd or cd to teach me?

I just started calling myself and bought the buck gardners canada hammer II. Nice call I have been getting some good sounds out of it.

I would get a Winglock SR or longneck if i was you.......Great to learn on........requires very little air.

Once you mater that baby swich to Winglock Sudden impact and you are ready to rock the geese and step on the stage

forget the Hammer 2

Dont bother with the hammer 2, unless you are hunting in conditions that are very dry. I have problems with the call when i am hunting during moist weather. the reed sticks and who has time to clean when$ a flock is seen at a distance. Try a flute or better yet, spend more than $40. I have two sean mann calls( cost a fortune, but worth every penny)

If you want to learn calling--get a DVD or VHS tape so you can see how to hold the call. The holding of it plays a BIG part in the sound it makes, so IMO watching it is very important so you do not get frustrated.
