Beginning calling

Postby VAgooser » Fri Jul 20, 2012 5:24 pm

Hey all, I'm looking for any tips you can give a beginning caller. i'm having trouble finding any definitive help on line on calling, though I have some guys that can help me out (probably not before early season though)

Also, what can i get for cheap calls that sound good. So far I've bought three short reeds (Buck Gardner Goose Hammer, Primos Honky Tonk, and RNT Goozilla) and have been doing well with clucks (still havent figured out the moan yet or the feeding chuckles, mainly because i can't get a low enough note out of the Primos or RNT (havent gotten the buck gardner yet)). Still trying to figure out cadence to the calling and the strings of notes to use at different distances or whatever. Honks and clucks will work to begin with, where to next?

You have 4 calls to practice with. Buy the Bad Grammar dvd and start practicing. To blow the illusion flute, cover the hole in the side of the call with tape. Use your hands for back pressure.

Yup, I've not owned your other calls but know the Goosezilla will moan like a... Well, let's just say it can do a lot more than you at this point. Bad Grammer should get you up and rolling on the calls you already own.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

Tend to lean toward Buck Gardner calls myself,both duck & Goose. Agreed, it take lots of practice ,plus call break in..... A copy of Bad Grammer will give you the "how too make" all the sounds of a Canada Goose! Good Luck :thumbsup:
