Call question for a beginner

Postby dbohunts » Wed Nov 30, 2005 10:01 am

Iam just picking up the sport. I live in central North Carolina and have hunted with others a few times and I now have a few farms to hunt on my own.
My question is what is a good starting call that I can learn all the sounds of a canadian goose on? I have a primos honky tonk which I like but it is a short reed and I heard these are harder to learn on. I have a hard time getting the low moaning and gutteral sounds to sound right. I can get the clucks and other greetings to sound good, but the sounds that require less pressure are giving me a hard time.
Do I need a long reed flute style call? If so what brandis good for under

thanks for your help, :salude:

If i were you i would get a Winglock Long neck......or Winglock Short Reed

These calls are very easy blowing and are pure goose......takes very little air to operate.

Email or Call Rick at Winglock........he will give you some advice on which call he thinks would be best for ya.....

if you don't like it he will make you happy.......Great guy!! With Great Calls. is his website

one problem you might be having is the honkey tonk needs alot of air to be blown try a short reed like tim grounds clearly talk about 30 bux and sounds good and dosen't use much air self tunes so a great noobie call :thumbsup: good luck :cool:
