I picked up a call from Zink calls awhile back, I had never used one of theirs and I found it on sale. It also came with a how-to dvd, "Waterfowl University" or something like that. Probably the most boring video I've seen in awhile but it was also the most helpful how-to I've seen on goose calling. The call sounds great too.

Honestly I was using it half the season without having watched the video, but after I sat down and watched it the call turned out to sound a lot better than how I was using it, and I've been calling geese all my life...

Otherwise those long "honker" flutes ( the ones that are nearly a foot long) are made for beginners and most of them all you need to do is blow into them and they'll sound ok. Cheap too.

Buddy you haven't been living yet. Get yourself a Zink Power Clucker and the Bad Grammar DVD and practice your ass off. If you are serious about this don't get a flute, you'll form extremely bad habits that are hard to break. Good luck buddy.

If you are not worried about getting a short reed a flute call can be easy to blow, easy to tune and sound good. I personally like the Big River Long Honker call.

If you feel you need a short reed call, I think the Winglock Goose Whisperer is about the easiest blowing short reed around and it sounds really good. It is a soft call but sounds good.

Give Big Sean's calls a look, check out the "Rookie" edition Big Kahuna call, great price and a very user friendly call. I run his acrylic version of his Kahuna and love it, good luck and welcome to the addiction!
